Alexandre Lacazette is reportedly considering quitting Arsenal this week, according to Le10Sport.

The Premier League side, who defeated West Ham United 3-1 on Saturday at the Emirates Stadium for their first victory of the new 2018-19 campaign, face an uncertain few days over the future of their forward.

The 27-year-old, who has 16 international caps for France, is yet to start for The Gunners in the Premier League this season, but he has appeared as a substitute in all three matches against Manchester City, Chelsea and West Ham respectively.

Lacazette, who arrived at the Emirates back in July 2017 following his move from Ligue 1 outfit Lyon, in a deal reportedly worth up to £52.6m, has scored 17 goals in 42 appearances in all competitions for the North London club.

Arsenal’s Alexandre Lacazette.

However, the striker is understood to be considering quitting Arsenal this week, before the close of the main European transfer windows on Friday (August 31), as he fears he does not fit into new head coach Unai Emery’s plans this term.

The Frenchman could push for a late move away from The Gunners this week, with fellow forward Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang seemingly given the nod to spearhead Arsenal’s attack under Emery this campaign.

Lacazette is contracted at the Emirates until June 2022, and is valued at £54m.
