For the past weeks, Alexandre Lacazette has been rumored to plan on leaving Arsenal and joining Barcelona at the end of this season. There are no official statements from both sides for the past weeks, but just now the Arsenal star just fueled the rumors after he is being spotted in Barcelona less than 48 hours after The Gunners ends up in a miserable defeat over Chelsea in the Europa League final match.
The Frenchman has been heavily linked with a move to the Camp Nou in this year summer transfer window, last week he admitted that his representatives would speak to Arsenal about his future with the club at the end of this season. At that time he told Malaysia online casino no deposit bonus that the only thing that he thought about is the final game against Chelsea, and after the game, he will see what would happen to his future.
Moreover, he also told the media that he would stay with the club if they are happy with him. He said that in France they believed that the age of 27 or 28 is one of the best ages of someone’s career. His statement indicated that he would stay at the Emirates Stadium, but what happened recently has shown us otherwise.
Meanwhile, Barcelona had been keen on Manchester United star, Marcus Rashford. But the England international player is just too expensive. He would cost in excess of 100 million pound sterling. Therefore, Alexandre Lacazette is considered as a more viable option.
The Report May Increase The Gunners Supporter Anxiety
The Europa League final match against Chelsea was a chance for The Gunners to gain entry into the Champions League, but their 4-1 defeat is likely to have a knock-on effect for Unai Emery and his squad. The manager admitted that with the disappointing result, a number of Arsenal players could now leave the club. And perhaps, Alexandre Lacazette is one of them.
There is a report that claimed that Alexander Lacazette was seen in Barcelona city center last Friday. Though it’s stated that the player may simply be enjoying the start of his summer holidays, the report will likely worry all of Arsenal supporters who are known to be desperate to keep hold of their Player of the Year with the club for the next season.
Alexandre Lacazette signed for Arsenal two years ago for a fee of around 46 million pounds, and if they sell him this summer they can expect to make a modest profit. But to this date, there are no official statements for both parties.
