Mikel Arteta, who has won two recent wins including a professional win over Burnley, is hoping that rebuilding his arsenal is inevitable.
His Gunners has been poor for most of the past year, but the Spanish player deserves credit for not giving up and sticking to his principles. If they have shown something in recent games, if their players are playing well, Arsenal are still a difficult and attractive team.
But for all the good news, there may be worse news around the corner. According to Le 10 Sport, quoted by the Mirror, Alexandre Lacazette is ready to leave for free next summer following the expiration of his contract with the club.
By then, the player was on the wrong side of the 30s, and although he was often hot and cold on the doorstep, he was still a solid attacking piece. Even if your goals are difficult to achieve, you cannot put a price on your experience. Losing this is likely to be a major headache that Arteta doesn’t need, but Lacazette’s future may be a long way from Emirates Stadium as Atletico Madrid is reportedly interested in their services.
