Russian agent Dmitry Cheltsov claims Arsenal actively tried to offload Alexandre Lacazette in the summer and has been quoted as revealing exactly how much the Frenchman’s release clause is set at.

“His salary would be €7-8m [£6.3m – £7.2m] after tax.” However, it’s not known whether Zenit actively explored the possibility of signing Lacazette from Arsenal, or indeed whether Arsenal did, in fact, look to cash in on the player.



But it will come as a surprise for Arsenal supporters at reading Cheltsov’s quotes after he claims he was instructed to try and broker a deal to take Lacazette to Zenit St Petersburg this summer.



However, he’s never truly established himself as guaranteed striker at Emirates Stadium, with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang very much No 1 and Unai Emery trying different systems to accommodate both players as well as summer signing Nicolas Pepe.

“I offered Alexandre Lacazette to Zenit,” Cheltsov is quoted as telling Sport Business Gazeta.

Meanwhile, Arsenal’s chances of signing Dani Ceballos on a permanent deal next summer have taken something of a decline.

The France striker has been a big success since joining Arsenal in a then club-record £46.5m deal in summer 2017, scoring 38 goals in 91 appearances for the club.
