Alexander Lacazette has been offered to AC Milan for free.
The 30-year old Frenchman is into the final year of his current contract at the Emirates, and has not been offered a new deal.
He has struggled for first-team minutes this season, and ahs played barely an hour in the Premier League, although he does have two League Cup goals to his credit. He did appearas as a second-half substitute against Brighton on Saturday, but produced very little.
Now he could be allowed to depart as early as January, although with club captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang potentially away at the African Cup of Nations that month, the Gunners could leave themselves potentially light in terms of attacking options.
Now reports from Italy suggest that Arsenal may not even demand a fee for him, and that he has been offered to the Serie A club, provided that they agree to pay his wages in full – £150,000 a week.
If he does move to AC Milan, he will join another former Arsenal striker and French international in the form of Olivier Giroud.
