The French striker is nearing his last year at Arsenal.
boss Mikel Arteta has claimed that talks with Alexandre Lacazette to extend his contract will begin soon.
Lacazette has 18 months left on his contract with Arsenal and there are many rumors about his departure from Arsenal. Monaco is his most serious destination and the club has been insisting on attracting him for a long time. However, Arteta claimed that Gunners are in no hurry to extend the contract with the French star and that he is satisfied with the striker's performance.
Arteta told reporters:
"He's got a contract with us. He played really well the other week. It's exactly what we demand him to do. I'm really happy with him and the discussions about his contract will happen soon and we will see what happens."
Aubamayang was in a similar situation last year, but eventually the contract was extended. Arteta continued:
"Well, I'm hoping that a player under contract will continue with us. Every case is different and we're going to assess that and we'll make a decision in relation to that."
