Alexander Lacazette is set to be offered to Sevilla in part exchange for striker Youssef En-Nesyri.
Lacazette is out of contract with Arsenal at the end of the season and has made it clear that he is not interested in signing a new deal at the Emirates, even if one were to be offered to him, something that does not currently appear to be in the table anyway.
Faced with losing him at the end of the campaign for free, the Gunners are open to selling him in January, if only to generate some value for him.
Sevilla face losing Moroccan En-Nesyri, who is a Moroccan international,, because of the Africa Cup of Nations, meaning that hey will need to bring in a replacement then, and Lacazette may be the man to fit the bill.
The French striker has appeared in just two League Cup ties for the Gunners so far this season, scoring in each one.
