His slump towards December last season saw the club stump out a record transfer bid for Gabon international Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang. Continue reading Is Alexandre Lacazzette off this Summer? →

He is set to see off his final ten months left at the Emirates before he exits for free next year.
Arsene Wenger insisted that the Chile international would not be allowed to leave the club no matter the amount offered. After back and forth, it seems the player would remain in north London.
