Alexandre Lacazette future

Alexandre Lacazette’s future at Arsenal appears to be up in the air after being pictured inhaling “hippy crack”.

Photos emerged showing Lacazette respiring from a balloon at his home last week with reports suggesting he was using nitrous oxide, which is also known as laughing gas.

The club has confirmed that they are ready to take “serious” disciplinary action which means the striker is facing a maximum two weeks’ fine.

According to the Daily Mirror, the France international’s future at the Gunners is now uncertain as club officials are said to be very disappointed with his behaviour.

Emmanuel Dennis exit

Club Brugge striker Emmanuel Dennis looks set to leave the Belgian club in the upcoming transfer window.

And that’s good news for Premier League quartet Arsenal, Everton, Wolves and Newcastle who are known to be interested in the twice-capped Nigeria international.

Dennis, 22, has enjoyed a decent campaign for Club Brugge – scoring nine goals and providing two assists in 33 appearances – including a Champions League brace against Real Madrid at the Bernabeu.

“It is very likely that Dennis will leave,” Club Brugge manager Philippe Clement told La Dernière Heure. “He can also count on a lot of interest. It is the time for him to take a new step.”

The Daily Mail claim Dennis will cost roughly £22million and is ‘likely to sign a deal with Arsenal’.

Ryan Fraser blow

Arsenal are likely to miss out on Ryan Fraser as the Bournemouth star has set his sights on a free transfer to Tottenham.

Fraser’s contract with the Cherries runs out on June 30 and he is thus one of the most sought after players ahead of the summer transfer window due to the current financial climate.

According to the Daily Mirror, Tottenham have emerged as serious candidates to sign the winger for free at the end of the season and are set to make an offer.

That comes as a blow to Arsenal, who will be looking for reinforcements in the summer following a turbulent season, as well as Liverpool, who have also expressed interest.
