Arsenal offer Alexandre Lacazette to Serie A giant AS Roma


Arsenal is eager to offload fringe players and especially those who are on massive wages. Since different turns are taking place in the transfer window, new opportunities can be seen.

The opportunity is emerging for Arsenal to sell a couple of their fringe players. This could be a massive boost if Arsenal is able to do it. With a larger cash pool, the Gunners can move for their primary targets Martin Odegaard and James Maddison. 

Arsenal offer Alexandre Lacazette

According to a report from Calciomercato, The Gunners have offered their fringe player Alexandre Lacazette to AS Roma. The Serie A club is looking for a striker after Edin Dzeko is close to moving to Inter Milan.

Lacazette moved to Arsenal with a huge set of expectations and a high reputation. But unfortunately, the transfer has barely worked for both the parties. The French International has massively disappointed at Arsenal. His work rate has dipped and even his hunger to score goals has gone down.

Nevertheless, this might be an indication to part ways. Even the Arsenal manager, Mikel Arteta, is not happy with the striker and he has already told Lacazette that he is not part of the plans. It might be time for him to pursue a new chapter.

AS Roma representatives in London 

According to the same report, representatives of AS Roma are currently in London to talk with Chelsea. The Italian club’s primary target is Tammy Abraham. Tammy is no longer in need at Chelsea with Romelu Lukaku moving to Stamford Bridge.

This certainly has been a merry-go-round transfer. Chelsea is almost done with the Lukaku deal and Inter Milan is looking for a replacement. The Italian giants have moved in for Edin Dzeko of Roma. And now Roma is looking for a replacement for Edin Dzeko.

This has brought them to London, but it looks like their visit would not be fruitful. It is because Tammy Abraham does not want to move to Italy and he is currently resisting a move. The England International is waiting on Arsenal who have recently held talks with his representatives.

Arsenal is desperate to bring a fresh face since both Lacazette and Pierre Emerick-Aubameyang have flopped. However, Gunners’ primary target for that position is Lautaro Martinez.

But a deal for him looks slim since Inter Milan do not want to sell him. They have already secured a possible £100 million from Lukaku’s transfer and that has balanced the books for them. Only time will tell which forward player Arsenal will land.

While for Roma, everything is not over since Lacazette is still available. The Frenchman is available for around £17 million, which is half the asking price of Tammy Abraham. Reports suggest that Roma could even afford his huge wages.

Even the transfer would help the Gunners in their pursuit of other targets in many positions. Arsenal is currently focused on bringing a creative midfielder and then a goalkeeper. But there isn’t a lot of time left in the window. Arsenal have to quickly complete their business before the exact three weeks’ time.
