Arsenal will have to pay Alexandre Lacazette’s £60 million buy-out clause after the Lyon footballer confirmed his desire to move away from Lyon at the end of the season.
The 25-year-old has been the subject of interest from a number of top clubs, namely PSG and Atletico Madrid and would welcome the activation of his release clause.
In an interview with Canal Football Club (h/t the Mirror) the French striker confirmed his desire to move away from the club.
“I think that this summer will be the time where I will need a change of scenery and discover something else, still with the idea of advancing and progressing in terms of football and as a person.”
“I am going to continue to work, in the hope that good opportunities will come this summer.”
Lacazette has already scored 18 Ligue 1 goals already this season and looking all set for a bigger club. Your call, Arsenal.
