Alexandre Lacazette could quit Arsenal this week, according to reports in France.

The former Lyon striker has got off to a slow start to life under new manager Unai Emery.

He has found himself on the bench for all three of Arsenal's Premier League games this season, with Emery favouring Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang as a lone front man.

So far, he has opted against playing Aubameyang and Lacazette together.

The team selections have reportedly left Lacazette concerned about whether his future lies at the Emirates or not.

Le10Sport in France are reporting that he is now open to pushing for a move before the European transfer windows close at the end of the week.

However, Arsenal are expected to do all they can to keep Lacazette at the club until at least January

The Gunners would be unable to sign a replacement, with the Premier League transfer window already closed.

Lacazette was sent on at half-time of Saturday's game against West Ham and helped turn a 1-0 deficit into a 3-1 victory.

Following the game, he said: “I knew I could help the team.

“What I do is different to everyone else. I just want to play and help my team all the time.

“When you come off the bench you have to be ready for your team-mates, it is what I tried to do and obviously it helped us to get the win.
