Inter are said to be interested in Arsenal striker Alexandre Lacazette, who is expected to depart the Gunners in the near future. This is the final year of Lacazette’s contract at Arsenal and he has been overlooked in the Premier League by Mikel Arteta. Despite appearing in three consecutive triumphs over Norwich, Burnley, and Tottenham last month the Frenchman has yet to start a league match this season.
Previously Lacazette played for Lyon during the start of his career and before joining the Gunners. His boyhood club Lyon is also keen to re-sign the 30-year-old who made 275 appearances for the club between 2010 and 2017, scoring 129 goals in 275 games.
Lacazette has expressed interest in staying in London, with West Ham and Crystal Palace. Both are his preferable and possible destinations, hence there is a feasibility of him staying in the Premier League instead of joining Serie A team Inter. Clubs from Spain, Italy, and Germany have expressed interest from afar.
At the conclusion of the season, Lacazette is expected to leave as a free agent, rather than in January, when Arsenal may still get a good deal for him. According to Gazzetta dello Sport football news in Italy Inter are trying to strengthen in January. Lacazette is reportedly one of the players they are considering, with a summer free transfer also appealing.
It follows a similar pattern as Inter’s free signing of Edin Dzeko, 35, ahead of this season – Inter will only pay €1.5 million if they qualify for the Champions League – which is designed to keep expenditure low despite the high-profile sales of Romelu Lukaku and Achraf Hakimi. Inter spent a lot of money in 2019 and 2020 to assemble a team that would help Antonio Conte win a long-awaited Serie A title, but they had to be considerably more cautious this year.
