Arsenal are considering selling Alexandre Lacazette before the market shuts.
The Independent says Arsenal are willing to sell Lacazette to help them towards signing Lyon’s Houssem Aouar.
Aouar has been top of Arsenal’s wishlist but Lyon’s high asking price of £54million as so far proved prohibitive.
While Atletico Madrid’s Thomas Partey has a release clause that the Spanish club are steadfastly sticking to.
It means for Arsenal to sign Aouar and Partey, players need to be sold.
And Lacazette, who has two years left on his contract and renewal talks have not begun, is among the players who could be moved on to enable a move for Aouar.
