“When Arteta became the manager, Lacazette was in good form, scoring goals, playing up front with Aubameyang on the wing. But slowly there started to be an issue between the manager with Lacazette not playing as many games. So that’s why I think he’ll want to leave the club.
“It can be difficult for players like Lacazette because as a big player, you always want to play in the big competitions.” Lacazette admitted he was open to a move away from the club in summer, with the ex-Lyon striker detailing how he has never ‘cut contact’ with his former club with just two months left on his contract.
“I am in discussions with a lot of clubs. I am open,” Lacazette said to Canal Plus. “I have never cut contact with Lyon since I left. I try to return to the club once or twice a year to see the medical staff because we are really close. Lyon knows that I am free, they have come to the information.”
