Alexandre Lacazette has been speaking about what Arsenal fans should expect over the next few seasons and winning the title should not be high on the agenda.
Instead, the Frenchman feels the focus should be on finishing in the top four and playing consistent Champions League football, however, it is what he has not actually said that interested me the most.
“A club like Arsenal has to be playing in the Champions League every season,” Lacazette told FourFourTwo.
“We will start to think about winning the biggest titles in a few seasons, but first we need to make sure we are in the Champions League consistently again.
“It’s been positive. We had a new coach with a new approach, and I think I’ve played well – better than in the previous season.
“And we’ve played bigger, more important games.”
What he says, of course, makes sense and I do not feel that he is being negative by saying we should not be thinking about winning titles but the fact he is speaking about the next few years tells me he has no intention of leaving Arsenal any time soon.
Remember, just last week there was a big hullabaloo because he was meeting with his agent and the club due to the interest of an unnamed Spanish club and of course he has previously been linked with Barcelona.
Now, that is not to say he will not be sold, this is football, anything can happen, I mean, if Barca came in with a £100 Million offer then he would probably be sold but as things stand right now, based on those comments, he is not going anywhere.
That is what I have taken from those comments.
