Lacazette makes Inter Milan decision
Arsenal striker Alexandre Lacazette is not interested in an exit from Arsenal to join Inter Milan when the transfer window opens, L’Equipe via the Mail reports.
The French striker is set to enter the final two years of his contract in North London, which puts the Gunners in a difficult position as they look to ensure they don’t lose his services for a cut-price fee.
A host of clubs have been linked with his signature, including Atletico Madrid and Inter, but it’s now been stated that the latter club is not of interest to him.
The Serie A side were reportedly keen on landing Lacazette as a replacement for Barcelona target Lautaro Martinez but now seemingly need to reassess their options.
Luiz needs pay-cut for Benfica move
Arsenal defender David Luiz will have to take a significant pay-cut of £38,000-a-week if he is to secure a dream move back to Benfica, the Mirror states.
The Brazil international’s future at the Emirates Stadium is unclear, with Arsenal yet to make a move to extend the one-year deal he penned upon his £8m arrival from Chelsea last summer.
Mikel Arteta’s side possess an option to activate a one-year extension to his deal but, should he leave, Luiz has made no secret of his desire to return to Benfica to finish his career.
However, the Portuguese side have a salary cap of £32k-a-week and he will need to see his wages cut by over a half of their current amount before he can join the club.
