West Ham United and Crystal Palace could be in contention to sign Arsenal striker Alexandre Lacazette next summer.

The Frenchman has only nine months remaining on his Gunners deal, and talks over a renewal have completely stalled.

The hierarchy have made little effort to prolong his stay, and he appears set to leave on a free transfer next summer.

Lacazette can sign a pre-contract with a foreign club in January with interest from Atletico Madrid and Juventus.

However, according to 90min, it is claimed that the 30-year-old has not ruled out the possibility of staying in London.

West Ham and Crystal Palace are mentioned as potential candidates to sign him in case he is not keen on relocating.

Lacazette made his first start of the campaign in midweek. He bagged a goal and an assist in the 3-0 win over AFC Wimbledon.

He is likely to return to the bench for Sunday's north London derby against Tottenham Hotspur at the Emirates Stadium.
