Shock for Arsenal fans after new boss Unai Emery decides to sell star striker in summer transfer window


Arsenal boss Unai Emery could stamp his authority on his new club by selling striker Alexandre Lacazette, the Daily Star has claimed.

Turkish side Fenerbahce are rumoured to be interested in the Frenchman who struggled to make an impact at the Emirates since joining from Lyon.

The 27-year-old started the campaign in style but his form dipped after the first part of the season.

Then-manager Arsene Wenger substituted the player frequently with the Frenchman telling reporters how the striker's fitness level was no longer sharp in the last 20 minutes of games.

"He was in an adaptation period where I felt that, without any objective measurement, that sometimes he struggled a bit more in the second part of the game, especially in the last 20 minutes, to create the movement he can," Wenger said in March.

"I put that down to an adaptation period. It was not so much physically - that didn't drop so much - it just looked like he was a bit less sharp."
