Lacazette, 31, wore the captain’s armband at the Emirates for much of last season, but decided to move on.

According to The Athletic, he has decided to re-join Lyon – the side he left to sign for Arsenal in 2017.

Lacazette joined the Gunners for around £47m from the Ligue 1 outfit ahead of Arsene Wenger’s final season in charge at the Emirates.

He scored 17 goals in his debut season, but saw his importance wane following the January 2018 arrival of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

Lacazette would go on to play 206 times for the Gunners, scoring 71 goals and laying on 36 assists.
