They add that Arsenal have put a €17m (£15m) price tag on the Frenchman which they claim would be a ‘bargain’ for any club. That , who also recently put his valuation at £15m.
Meanwhile, former Gunners striker Kevin Campbell reckons the north London club should take a risk by keeping Lacazette and hoping that he will sign a new deal eventually.
Campbell told Football Insider: “Arsenal have shot themselves in the foot so many times over player contracts.
“I think this is a unique situation with Lacazette though. If you are not sure about which striker to bring in, you have just got to roll the dice with Lacazette’s contract. They have done it in the past with Aubameyang and it worked out.
“If they are not going to agree on a new deal, it is obviously something that will be addressed next summer.
“Listen, maybe they could get money for him but if he stays he will be integral to how we play next season. He did well all things considered last season.
“I have no problem with him staying and leaving on a free next summer. The Covid situation has made things difficult.”
