Alexandre Lacazette to leave Arsenal at end of contract on 30 June


French striker Alexandre Lacazette will leave Arsenal when his contract runs out on 30 June, the club have confirmed. The 31-year-old joined the Gunners from Lyon in July 2017 and has been linked with a return to his former club on a free transfer.

Lacazette scored 71 goals in 206 appearances for Arsenal and won the FA Cup with them in 2020. “Laca has been a fantastic player for us,” said Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta. “He’s been a real leader on and off the pitch and has been a very important influence to our younger players.

“His commitment with us has been exceptional and we wish him and his family success and happiness.” Lacazette scored six goals and registered eight assists in 36 appearances for Arsenal during the 2021-22 season.

He skippered the side after Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang was stripped of the captaincy by Arteta in December for a disciplinary breach.
