Lacazette is out of contract at Arsenal at the end of the season.
Bent said on talkSPORT: “I'd probably give him a new [contract]. Just as cover if we get someone else in.
"Maybe not as your number nine because you need your number nine to score goals.
“But don't let him go for nothing and have no plan B in place. Sign him up now, and then worry about getting someone else afterwards. Arsenal can't make that mistake.
"I think (Eddie) Nketiah's on a free as well. Don't let them both go, certainly with Lacazette, and then have no plan to bring anyone in."
