Arsenal is at risk of losing Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, according to the Daily Mail.

The newspaper reports the pair have shown little interest in signing contract extensions as a direct consequence of poor results and concerns over Emery's "conservative" methods.

Arsenal has failed to win any of its past six games in all competitions and is facing the prospect of another season outside the Champions League, a problem for the likes of Lacazette and Aubameyang.
