French star not happy with speculation about his Arsenal future

Alexandre Lacazette isn’t impressed by rumours flying around that Arsenal is looking to use him as a sweetener in the deals to bring in players like Thomas Partey.

The Frenchman is one of the players that have been linked with a move away from the club in this transfer window.

He remains a key player in Mikel Arteta’s side, however, Arsenal needs money to sign some of their high profile targets like Partey.

The Gunners have an abundance of attackers and it seems that they might be prepared to sacrifice the Frenchman for a new player.

He is, however, displeased with reports that he will be used as a makeweight to sign another player and he made that clear.

Speaking in an interview with French outlet, L’Equipe, he made it clear that if such rumours were indeed true, he is certainly unhappy about that development.

The striker blasted: “If that is true, no, it does not make me happy,” he revealed.

“What counts, is the choices that the coach makes, his belief.

“He is the one who makes the team, not the directors up high in the offices, and I know that he believes in me.”

He then went on to add that he wants to respect the 5-year deal he signed at the club.

He divulged: “I am at Arsenal, I signed (in 2017) a 5-year contract to progress and win titles. I have two more to come. I am determined to stay.”

    Arsenal women 8-1 up!! Not over yet…

      8? There’s an evolution going on at The Arsenal. Arteta was recently promoted to Manager so I’m tempted to ask: Is Arteta also coaching the female team? 😂 8…..8…

      1. Sue says:

        It ended 9-1 🙂

        1. Chapo says:

          Sue was happy with 8 but now am a bit angry it ended 9. They should have just left it at 8 if they were not ready to make it 10….😂

          1. Sue says:

            😂😂 maybe they’ll make 10 next week, Chapo, they’re on a roll 😉

    Come on Leeds

  3. Eddie says:

    Since the start of the 2018-19 season, no outfield player has made more errors leading to goals in the Premier League than Virgil van Dijk (3).

    Xhaka-2, Mustafi -1…
    But Arsenal fans will tell you that Mustafi and Xhaka are absolutely the worst players

      BELLERIN IS WORSE THAN BOTH.

  4. Sue says:

    Oh ffs…. Liverpool really make me sick…
    Unlucky Leeds… fancy going to Anfield and scoring 3!! Ooh we go there soon!

    Omg don’t Tyler and Carragher go on?! Non stop gushing over the scousers… thought I was gonna throw up at one point 🤣

      @Sue
      Amazing play from Leeds. They shot themselves in the foot though. They could have had em 3-2, had they been more composed. We better watch out for the new boys, they look dangerous…

      1. Sue says:

        Unfortunately their new signing had a mare!! Shame! Apart from that they did pretty well 😆
        Seriously, they played well…they’ll be just fine in this league. Really like Ayling and Phillips! We’ll have a good game against them, for sure!.

    Eddie,

    Its really sad how much stick both
    Xhaka and Mustafi still receive
    from Arsenal fans even though
    both were tremendous after the
    restart last season.

    Sell Mustafi for £13M? SMFH!!

    1. Eddie says:

      Till now, there are still fans that’ll tell you Xhaka and Mustafi are still poor players

    2. Maxis says:

      Add Bellerin to that list.

    Again, just like the AMN article, why don’t we listen to what Arteta and/or the player is saying for goodness sake?
    MA was asked about Lacs and he specifically said that the player was in his plans etc etc.

    Lacs is ALSO saying that he is going to honour the five year contract he signed with the club, thank goodness our players are showing that when they commit to the cause, they really mean it!!!

    If they don’t, of course, MA will let them go (Martinez) immediately they start insisting on guarantees of playing time.
    Now, let’s see Auba do the same and sign the contract!!!

    As for Bellerin, it seems that Barca, PSG and Bayern Munich are all interested in signing this player who, supposedly, can’t defend, lost his pace, hasn’t recovered from his injuries and is dross!!!!
    Thank goodness MA knows what he’s capable of, along with Mohamed Elneny of course…what a great game he had today, as MA was quick to point out.
