This is despite the forward playing an influential role at the Emirates, scoring 67 goals in 174 appearances to help the north London club win the FA Cup in 2020 under Mikel Arteta and reach the Europa League final with Unai Emery.

The 30-year-old was not actively involved last season, with his lack of game time extending to the new campaign where he is yet to start a Premier League match.

According to reports, Arteta is now looking to offload him and is ready to sanction his departure.

The Sun claims Arsenal have already identified Everton ace Calvert-Lewin and Aston Villa marksman Watkins as possible replacements for Lacazette.

Calvert-Lewin has enjoyed a stunning rise in the EPL as one of the finest finishers having scored 21 times for the Toffees across competitions last term.

Watkins, on the other hand, thrived in the Championship while turning out for Brentford before moving to Villa where he netted 16 goals during the 2020/21 season.

The 26-year-old's latest acquisition is the swanky Porsche 911 GTS which cost a whopping £120,000 (N67m).

The former Arsenal academy graduate has now added another valuable supercar to his collection parked in his garage.

Being a Bayern top star also gave him the privilege of owning an Audi R8 which costs £140,000 (N78m) due to the sponsorship deal with the car manufacturing giants.
