Alexandre Lacazette says his future at Arsenal is not dependant on Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang staying at the club.

The Frenchman has another two years left on his Gunners deal but Aubameyang is entering the final year of his contract.

And with the Gabon international giving no indication of whether he is willing to sign fresh terms or not, there are rumours that he could be sold this summer.

Arsenal are desperate to keep hold of their top scorer but do not want to lose him on a free transfer next year.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang's Arsenal future could be decided by this Saturday's FA Cup final against Chelsea

Mikel Arteta has stressed he is confident that he can persuade Aubameyang to sign a new contract, especially if Arsenal are successful in Saturday's FA Cup final against Chelsea.

However, if they lose they will have no European football to offer their current stars or to entice new signings to the club.

Asked if he has entered talks over a new contract, Lacazette replied: "No, we didn't talk about this.

"Me, I'm just playing my games and finishing the season to see how it's going to be but we didn't talk about anything."

Lacazette and Aubameyang are close friends off the pitch but the former insists his future remains at the Emirates, whether Aubameyang leaves or not.

"No, because we know that Auba has a lot of discussions with the club and I can't put my future on someone else," he replied when such a scenario was put to him.

"When he came everyone knows we had a good relationship together. We always talk about everything, not only about football but everything in life. He's a good guy. That's why between us it became really easy."

Lacazette has struggled for regular game time under Arteta, who has put his faith in younger players since being appointed.

Eddie Nketiah and Gabriel Martinelli have often stepped in to lead the line, with the 29-year-old settling for a place on the bench.

Lacazette will be hoping to land a starting berth in today’s FA Cup final and to finally get his hands on a first piece of meaningful silverware since joining three years ago.
