Alexandre Lacazette has admitted that he and his Arsenal team-mates are playing for their futures at the club as Arsene Wenger prepares to step down.

Wenger announced last week that he will be calling time on his glittering career at The Emirates at the end of the season after nearly 22 years in charge of the north London club.

Arsenal’s players will be hoping to hand the Frenchman the send-off he deserves as the Gunners look to try and end the campaign on a high by winning the Europa League to seal their spot in the Champions League for next season.

However, with the uncertainty about who will succeed Wenger continuing, Lacazette has admitted that he and his team-mates must hit top gear to prove themselves to the new man in charge.

Lacazette told Sky Sports: “We want to keep going and be good because we know that a new manager is coming.

“Maybe everything will change. We don’t know if everyone can stay in the club.”

Arsenal are currently preparing for the return leg of their Europa League semi-final clash against Atletico Madrid in Spain on Thursday night.

The Gunners, who are sixth in the Premier League, were pegged back and held to a 1-1 draw by the Spanish side in the first leg at The Emirates last week, despite Atletico Madrid being down to 10 men for most of the game.
