Alexandre Lacazette on his way to Barcelona?

Lacazette to Barcelona this month?

Arsenal striker Alexandre Lacazette has been linked with a potential move to Barcelona.

The Gunners are eyeing a creative midfielder this month, and they have been linked with numerous names including Philippe Coutinho.

According to Sport, the north London club could sign the Brazil international in a swap deal that could see Lacazette move to the Camp Nou.

Lacazette has entered the final year of his contract with the Gunners, and the hierarchy have decided against handing him an extension.

Meanwhile, the Blaugrana are keen to get Coutinho off their ranks with the need to reduce their wage bill in the coming weeks.

The Gunners made a poor start to the 2021/22 Premier League campaign with a surprise 2-0 loss to Brentford on the road.

They were missing both Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang through illness, but the main reason could be different.

Aubameyang has also been linked with a move away from the Emirates amid suggestions of a rift with manager Mikel Arteta.
