AC Milan have emerged as potential favourites to sign Arsenal striker Alexandre Lacazette next summer.

The Frenchman has seven months remaining on his contract, and the Gunners have no plans of extending his stay.

They have the option of selling him in January, but Mikel Arteta has clearly hinted that the striker will be staying.

Still, he can negotiate a pre-contract with a foreign club at the turn of the year, and there appears plenty of interest.

Barcelona and Atletico Madrid are interested in signing him, but they are set to face competition from the Rossoneri.

The Serie A giants are loaded with striker options in their ranks. They recently signed Olivier Giroud from Chelsea.

Despite this, they are looking for further reinforcement, and Lacazette is being seen as a potential upgrade in the frontline.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic has had another fine season, but his injuries suggest that he won't be a regular if he stays for another year.
