ALEXANDRE LACAZETTE has reportedly been offered by Arsenal to AC Milan for free as he approaches the end of his contract.
The 30-year-old is in the final year of his contract at the Emirates and it looks increasingly unlikely that he will extend his stay in North London.

The Frenchman has fallen down the pecking order under Mikel Arteta having been limited to just 31 minutes of Premier League football this term.
He has played in just one out of the six top-flight matches so far, with the ex-Lyon ace an unused substitute in the last three fixtures.
And it appears that Arsenal are looking to shift him before his deal expires.
According to Calciomercato, the Les Bleus international could depart the club in January.
They state that they have offered Milan the chance to bring him to the San Siro for nothing.
And all that the Serie A side would need to do is pay his wages, which is believed to be in the region of £150,000-a-week.

However it has been claimed that his £7.7million yearly salary could be an issue for the Rossoneri.
Lacazette has also been linked with a move to Sevilla in the winter transfer window in a possible swap deal for Youssef En-Nesyri.
It has been said that Sevilla would welcome the chance to bring the centre-forward to the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan Stadium in a cash-plus-player deal.
And LaLiga giants Barcelona are also rumoured to be weighing up a move for Lacazette in the New Year.
However Lacazette could choose to remain in London… to join one of Arsenal’s city rivals.
West Ham and Crystal Palace are both understood to be keeping tabs on his situation should he decide to remain in the capital.
