EPL: Unai Emery May Sell Striker Lacazette – Reports



Arsenal manager, Unai Emery, may sell striker Alexandre Lacazette this summer, in order to reinvest the funds in other areas of the squad, Football London reports.

Lacazette, who joined the Gunners from Lyon in 2017 for a fee of around £52million, has netted 12 goals in 33 appearances this season.

However, Unai Emery is working on a tight budget at the Emirates and is keen to offload Mesut Ozil, in a bid to free up space on the club’s wage bill.

Emery favours Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang in a central role and although he admires Lacazette, it is understood the Frenchman is expendable and could be sold this summer if the right offer arrives.

At 27, Arsenal could likely command an increase on the fee they paid for Lacazette two years ago and use the funds to reinvest in more urgent areas of the squad.
