Alexandre Lacazette’s Arsenal contract continues to wind down as he nears the final 12 months of his deal.
The forward and the club must make a decision on his future ahead of the summer as transfer interest mounts.
Mikel Arteta is still in the mist of reshaping his squad at the Emirates following his arrival last season.
The Spaniard will be keen to keep hold of on loan star Martin Odegaard, but much rests on Real Madrid’s demands.
His future may well have a knock on affect with several Arsenal youngsters contemplating their next moves.
Here are the latest transfer rumours from north London.
Lacazette’s future plans
Alexandre Lacazette his future doesn’t solely rest on him as speculation continues regarding an Arsenal exit.
The Frenchman is in his fourth year at the Emirates but his contract will soon enter its final 12 months.
He said: “My plan is to win a trophy with the club this season and it would be easy for me to pretend to have a contract extension.
“Everything is not only on my side, there is also the club, the manager. There are different things we have to think about.
“I don’t think it’s the right moment to talk about it.”
Newcastle eye permanent Willock deal
Steve Bruce wants to sign Arsenal loanee and match winner Joe Willock permanently.
The Newcastle boss is hopeful a deal can be struck with the Gunners in the summer – but is unsure if the Tyneside club have the funds in a deal that could be worth £20m.
But Bruce has served notice to Mikel Arteta that he is interested in taking the 21-year-old match winner – rating him as the sort of player you can “build a club around.”
Willock has been a big hit on Tyneside with box to box energy and three crucial goals including a late header to beat West Ham.
Buendia keeps options open
Emi Buendia snubbed a move to Arsenal as he eyed promotion with Norwich but has kept his options open moving forward.
The playmaker has helped the Canaries bounce back to the top flight at the first attempt.
Buendia’s creative flair attracted the Gunners’ interest and he has said: “I could have changed club. But I wanted to bring Norwich back in the Premier League. I don’t know what will happen in the next year.
“I follow the whole of European football but I’m very keen on the Premier [League].”
