New Arsenal manager Unai Emery is considering selling Alexandre Lacazette this summer as he is not convinced by the striker’s quality, according to Fotomac.
The Spaniard has made one signing so far, and it did not exactly break the bank.
Right-back Stephan Lichtsteiner agreed to move to the Emirates on a free transfer after leaving Serie A giants Juventus.
The defence is certainly an area that the Gunners need to address, as is the midfield, but the team already have decent options up front, including Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette.
However, according to Fotomac, Emery is considering selling Lacazette and replacing the Frenchman with Rodrigo from Valencia.
The report claims that Fenerhabce are interested in signing the former Lyon hitman.
Absolutely not. From the sounds of it, the North London outfit do not have the biggest budget this summer, so to get rid of a goalscorer would not make any sense at all.
Under Arsene Wenger last season, Lacazette rarely completely a full 90 minutes, but in 38 appearances in all competitions, the Frenchman still managed to score 17 goals and create four assists.
The 27-year-old lost his place to Aubameyang when the Gabon international moved to the Emirates from Borussia Dortmund in January.
However, the forward has shown that he deserves a chance, and to sell him after one season would be a ludicrous move from Emery.
In fact, the former Paris Saint-Germain boss risks losing support from the fans early in his tenure if he goes through with a sale.
