​Garlick confirms Arsenal looking to avoid repeat of contract fiasco

Arsenal director of football operations Richard Garlick has suggested the club are not going to repeat the contract issues they experienced with players in the past.

The Gunners have often been left with their tails between their legs when star players such as Alexis Sanchez and Aaron Ramsey ran down their contracts.

Now they are facing a decision on Alexandre Lacazette, who is out of contract in the summer.

"We are obviously between transfer windows at the moment, but an area that's ongoing is contract renewals, and we are always looking ahead at players who might be coming to the end of their deals," Richard Garlick told the club's official website.

"Both in the near future but also 18 months or two years down the line.

"We get a plan in place, then we start to execute it. That's happening now for next summer, and the one after that.

"It's a longer-term view. We have a strategy for each player depending on their situation."
