Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta says “everything can happen” with regards to Alexandre Lacazette’s future ahead of the north London derby against Tottenham on Sunday.
Lacazette’s contract expires at the end of this season and the striker has been linked with the likes of Juventus, Atletico Madrid, Barcelona and Sevilla.
Gunners manager Arteta is unsure whether Lacazette, who has scored two goals in three matches this season, will stay at the club.
The Spaniard said: “We discuss that internally and we discuss that with him. It’s a long season ahead of us, everything can happen, everything is open.”
Granit Xhaka is available to return against Arsenal’s fierce rivals at the Emirates Stadium this weekend after serving a three-match ban.
Arteta has a fully fit squad to choose from and says Xhaka has looked sharp in training, despite the midfielder having also tested positive for coronavirus while on international duty with Switzerland this month.
“He came back and he was flying [in training], because he really looks after himself,” Arteta said. “He gives you the maximum and the best possible attitude to compete and win matches.”
