Arsenal told to 'get rid' of Lacazette after reveal today - pundit

Gabby Agbonlahor has tipped Arsenal to allow Alexandre Lacazette to leave for free at the end of the season.

Speaking exclusively to Football Insider, the ex-Aston Villa and England attacker insisted Lacazette does not score enough goals to warrant a new contract.

The 30-year-old scored his first Premier League goal of the season to rescue Arsenal a 2-2 draw with Crystal Palace last night after being introduced from the bench.

Football.London reported today (October 19) Lacazette has no plans to extend his stay in north London with his current contract set to expire at the end of the season.

Asked whether Arsenal should try and keep the striker, Agbonlahor told Football Insider correspondent Connor Whitley: “I would get rid of him.

“Lacazette comes on and gets the odd goal but when he starts, he does nothing.

“It’s alright coming on and geeing up the fans and doing this and that but since he’s been there he’s not been good enough.

“He doesn’t score enough goals as an Arsenal striker given what they’ve had in the past.

“For me, I would replace him and get someone younger and better in.

“You start Lacazette in the next game and he probably won’t score or even have a decent game. When he comes on he might have a little impact.

“The goal he scored [against Crystal Palace] was not a difficult goal to score, it was a tap in.

“Arsenal need to change quite a few players in that team.”

Only Olivier Giroud (17) has scored more goals from the bench for Arsenal.

His nine goals from the bench has him level with cult heroes Nwankwo Kanu and Nicklas Bendtner.
