Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta has revealed that the north London club are "really happy" with Alexandre Lacazette and talks to negotiate a new deal for the French striker will take place soon.
Lacazette has just over 12 months left on his contract at the Emirates and has continued to be linked with various sides across Europe.

"He's got a contract with us," Arteta said. "He played really well the other week. It's exactly what we demand him to do.
"I'm really happy with him and the discussions about his contract will happen soon and we will see what happens."
Arteta was asked if Lacazette would staying like captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang did and he replied: "Well, I'm hoping that a player under contract will continue with us.
"Every case is going to be different and we will continue to assess that and we will make decisions relating to that."
