Alexandre Lacazette has hinted his future lies with Arsenal despite speculation linking him with an exit away from the Emirates this summer.
The France international scored 12 goals in 39 matches for the Gunners last campaign but his place in Mikel Arteta’s team has been called into question at times at the club.
Arsenal are believed to be willing to offload Lacazette in order to raise funds for transfers and Juventus are in pole position to sign the striker.
According to reports, his representatives have met with Juventus officials, while Spanish outlet Marca claims Atletico Madrid are also interested in Lacazette.
The 29-year-old latest activity on social media implies that he is set to stay at the club – where he has two years remaining on his current contract.
And Lacazette responded to the fan with a winking face. The hint means Lacazette appears likely to stay at Arsenal and add to his 48 goals for the club.
It remains to be seen if he will play in Arteta’s starting lineup next campaign, as eight of his 30 Premier League matches last season came from the bench.

But Lacazette started each of the club’s last four Premier League games of the 2019/20 season and the FA Cup final last month, during which Arsenal beat Chelsea 2-1.
“We know that Auba has a lot of discussion with the club but I can’t put my future in someone else,” Alexandre Lacazette said last month.
“Everybody does their own thing. I used to talk with him a lot at the beginning when we came back from lockdown.
“But since we really don’t really talk. I just know he will say something to me before you in the press will know but that is it.”
