Agent claims Alexandre Lacazette has release clause at Arsenal and was offered to Zenit

Russian agent Dmitry Cheltsov claims he offered Alexandre Lacazette to Zenit in the summer and says the striker has a £61 million release clause in his contract with Arsenal.

Lacazette was signed by Arsenal from Lyon for a then club-record fee of £46.5m in 2017.

The 28-year-old is in his third season at Arsenal but is currently sidelined with an ankle injury.
