'Finally', 'planning for the future': Some Arsenal fans buzzing about report they've read

Some Arsenal fans have reacted to the ESPN report claiming the Gunners haven’t offered Alexandre Lacazette a new contract.

The France international joined Arsenal back in 2017 for a reported £46.5million.

He won the club’s player of the season award in 2019 and was Arsenal’s leading Premier League goalscorer last term.

However, the 30-year-old has struggled at times – in 2019-20, he got just 12 goals in all competitions.

Lacazette was also linked with a move away in the summer, with his contract expiring at the end of the season.

Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta originally said in April that Lacazette’s future would be resolved this summer, as per ESPN.

However, the outlet – citing sources – claims no discussions are active between Arsenal and Lacazette.

The Gunners are choosing instead to focus their financial resources on other areas of the team, added the report.

It is unclear at this stage whether Arsenal will make a late offer to keep Lacazette at the club.

As things stand, the former Lyon ace will be free to talk to overseas clubs directly as of 1 January.

Here is what some Arsenal fans have made of the report:
