Arsenal striker Alexandre Lacazette has acknowledged that he is weighing up his options ahead of the January transfer window.

The Frenchman will enter the final six months of his contract in January, and th Gunners have no plans of extending his deal.

Mikel Arteta recently dismissed a mid-season exit, Lacazette has refused to rule out a potential exit at the beginning of 2022.

He told Telefoot: "My agents are starting to look to the right and to the left. There are still many questions, I prefer to wait until January to position myself."

Atletico Madrid are keen on landing his signature next summer, and they are expected to negotiate a pre-contract in the New Year.

On the other hand, AC Milan and Inter Milan prefer to sign him in January itself, and could open talks with the north London giants.

The Gunners are widely expected to block Lacazette's winter exit with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang off for African Cup of Nations duty.

Nicolas Pepe, Thomas Partey and Mohamed Elneny are among the other players that could be travelling for the tournament this winter.
