French striker Alexandre Lacazette has hinted that he will be staying at Arsenal amid ongoing speculation about his future at the club.
Transfer expert Fabrizio Romano claimed recently that Lacazette’s representatives had held talks with Juventus about a move, but an agreement was not reached with several clubs in France said to be interested in the player too.
"I believe that he will stay," Romano told YouTuber Lee Gunner in an interview for his channel."For sure his agents are speaking with many clubs. They spoke with Juventus, but Juventus can't pay like €50million at this moment to sign Lacazette.
But one fan took to Instagram to urge the former Lyon man to remain with the Gunners, writing: “One word. STAY."
Lacazette replied to the plea with a winking face and while this is, of course, nothing concrete, it does suggest that he will stay.
Despite being rarely used by Mikel Arteta in the past season, the French striker still managed 12 goals in 39 appearances for Arsenal in all competitions; the 29-year-old still has two years left on his contract.
The forward who failed to make the latest French squad was signed by Arsene Wenger for a then-club-record £46.5million in 2017 and has gone on to make 127 appearances overall, netting 48 goals.
