Lacazette CONFIRMED on official Arsenal site! Brilliant!

At long last an Arsenal transfer rumour for a top top top striker has actually come true!

Arsenal.com just announced:


Alexandre Lacazette has agreed to join us on a long-term contract, for an undisclosed fee

He is expected to travel with the tour party to Sydney this weekend and is likely to make his home debut in the Emirates Cup on July 29 or July 30.

Manager Arsène Wenger said: “We are very happy to have Alexandre join our group. He has shown over a number of years that he can score goals and that he is a very efficient finisher. As well, he has very interesting technical qualities and a strong character. So he is a guy who is a great addition for us, and someone who will help us challenge at the top level this season.”

The deal is subject to the completion of regulatory processes.

So now we just need Lemar and Mahrez and this will be the best Arsenal transfer window EVER!!!!

Get in!

  1. ARSENAL SIGN A KILLER STRIKER …
    LACAZETTE

  2. I can imagine now the beautiful through balls been fed to Lacazatte from Ozil as he breaks away from the opposing defense and scores!!

    1. Lacazette was officially arrived. I’m glad but not over hyped. One question across my mind : if he’s that good, then why Didier Deschamps doesn’t have plan for him? Any answer? Latest France squad : Giroud in the middle, Mbappe and other kid (I forgot his name) in the flank. Best selections : Giroud, Mbappe, and Griezmann. Lac? Somewhere in the bench.
      Arsene must thought something Deschamps didn’t, and lets hope that the result is gonna be amazing as we expected.

      1. FRANCE style suits Giroud but Lacazette is a much better well rounded player.

  3. Muffdiver wants change...not for arsenal...for.the vending machine, I'm thirsty as f###

    We need a replacement for Santiago Cazorla
    An to keep ox sanchez an ozzy

    Time for some nicknames
    The cassette
    Boom xhaka laca

    1. Break-on-through

      You should have kept that one in your hat. Would have been great after the first forty yard ball that Lacazette latches onto.

    2. Boom Xhaka Laca… YES!

      1. Yes the cassette has finally loaded. We hope to dance till infinity.

    3. Destined4success

      @Muffdiver: I like that Boom xhaka laca

  4. Sign someone Orsin Venker

    Where is the usual BOOM in the title???…
    Man the glory days are nearing…
    We are the arsenal….

    1. Hehehe true man, was supposed to be Boom!! Then the heading

  5. Early days, August is the clincher if he can hack it in the premier league,

  6. SynthiagoCazorla_Hvman_Machine

    This from former AFC player and former Lyon coach Gerard Houllier:

    “‘He has good technique, is good at using short spaces and is a hard-working player. He can attack, he can defend quickly. I’m not surprised Arsene fancied him.

    He will fit in their game. He will suit their passing game, the way they build up, their approach. He is very good near the box. ….You don’t seem to see him and then suddenly he moves. ”

    Some of those qualities I immediately noticed in Alexis Sanchez the first few games he played for us. Maybe we now have for ourselves 2 ALEXISES!!! (just kidding)

    Someone described him as the type of player you tell to “take it easy”.

    Imagine that!!!! Our frontline is going to be crazy busy.

    1. When did Houllier play for AFC, I must have missed that!

  7. Lets live this fine moment

    1. Yeah, lets rejoice, till the next signing

  8. We are floating and dancing… And more is coming. This shows the last season fans justified revolt..

    More and more of this Please.

    1. These signings are more to do with missing out on top 4 then the fans protests mate

      1. no.. Wenger tried to sign both him and Mbappe last year.. so he is being very comsistent kn his thought process..

        1. You have a point there

  9. SynthiagoCazorla_Hvman_Machine

    Lacazette signing -not just his talent and skill set alone- represents a whole lot of positive things for this club and at this time.

    Key among them is that it most likely will help in further negotiations to come.

  10. Brilliant transfer. We probably need two to three more transfers to make us contenders 4 all titles.

  11. SynthiagoCazorla_Hvman_Machine

    I prayed for Alexis real hard and we got him.
    Lacazette is the only other player I’ve prayed for like that.. and we got him.
    #IamExcitedAndPumped.

    1. You seem like a wonderful prayer warrior. Pray Alexis Sanchez signs asap. Need to stop worrying about that

  12. A very good signing for arsenal. We need to sign Lemar and a very solid defensive midfielder and the team will be excellent.

  13. Great news. Keep signing up Arsenal.

  14. I still dont get why people want mahrez. if we sign him then surely alexis or ozil are leaving because mahrez would play in LAM or RAM position.

    We only need a CM to make this one of the best transfer window in a while and one of the best squad. we have one of the fattest( LOL ) squad we ever had. lemar would be nice to rotate with either alexis or ozil and eventually taking over in 2 years and goretzka to rotate with ramsey and xhaka. 2 young good players with high ceiling.

    Funny now we need to trim the fat 34 players 21 or over. we have 9 surplus
    1 GK sold
    1 GK loaned
    Mathieu Debuchy sold
    Kieran Gibbs sold
    Carl Jenkinson sold
    Joel Campbell sold
    Chuba Akpom sold
    Callum Chambers loaned or gabriel sold
    perez or welbeck sold

    this would give us 25 players, a cm/am would take cazorla place in the squad

    1. Mahrez can play with Alexis and Lacazette.
      I think Ozil, Mahrez, Alexis and Lacazette would be an amazing attack

      Mahrez would be an upgrade to Theo

      If we lose Alexis we would also need a Left winger

      1. Yes mahrez is a damn good upgrade on Walcott but Walcott is not needed in 3-4-3. So signing him would mean bye bye alexis. Remember when rvp went we got 3 good players before he went.

  15. Great news. Keep signing them up Arsenal

  16. SynthiagoCazorla_Hvman_Machine

    And now we are gonna sign another high octane high energy player ALEXandr Golovin.

    What’s with Arsenal and all the Alex’s?

  17. finally, a striker that can run and finish. We have only had one or the other in welbeck and giroud. hope sanchez stays so we can now build a title challenge. #BoomXhakaLaca

  18. Good signing. Let’s see more of it!

  19. Hmmmmmm, Good News after many disappointments

  20. The only replacement for Carzola is Coultinho

  21. Omg im so happy now like jumpin in the sofa omg omg !!!

  22. Been a while since I’ve commented on here. But
    Welcome lacazette

  23. …good; who is coming next….?!
    and atleast we should reduce some garbage, starting from Wilshere and co., no more mercy, we need to challenge the big guns now if we consider ourselves among them..!!

    Up Arsenal FC.

  24. Welcome news, looking forward to this Arsenal team

  25. Welcome lacazette.

  26. Welcome Lacazette! Keep the quality transfers coming!

  27. A great signing… We need to keep Sanchez and Ozil and another attacking player along with one CM….

  28. Welcome Lacazette. We need you

    I’m still laughing from yesterday when somebody said “I don’t want cassette” and fatboy said “get a CD player then.” lol

    Seriously, Lacazette is a clinical striker and hardworking. Can’t wait to see his goals for us 🙂 🙂 🙂

  29. I hope we give him time to thrive………Arsenal fans can be hard on players in transition to the team……

  30. Dennis the Menace

    Arsenal have agreed a package deal fee of £170m + add ons with AS Monaco for Kylian Mbappé and Thomas Lemar. Medicals on Friday #AFC

    #now_i_am_not_sure_hat_to_feel
    #that_numbing_feeling

    1. If only that were true!

    2. Why do you even bother?????

  31. Great deal especially when you consider Real Madrid are supposedly holding out for 80 mil for Alvaro Morata!?

    Arsenal fans will always want more transfers. I am already quite enthused.

    My biggest remaining concern is the loss of Cazorla’s creative play.

  32. I’ve been reading and not commenting here for like 3 4 years but I’ll now. Lacazette Is the real deal. Been watching on YouTube. We just need a killer midfielder to replace santi necessarilyand we are good to go.

  33. He needs a song. Anybody remember one of Prince’s first hits?

    Little la-ca-zette
    Baby he’s much too fast
    Little la-ca-zette (oo oo oo)
    He’s got the pace to run right passed

  34. Lacazette is every reason for Sanchez and Ozil to sign contract extension. Just excite them further with a Mahrez Wenger. EPL is ours, ambition is back!!!

  35. Finally…

  36. lol Griezmann just had to say something. Who knows we might get #griezette next year 🙂

  37. Really gud signing arsenal… Nice work arsene….wish you the best lacazetti,give us some few more signings and you will see how electric that emirate could be….lemar/marez and a decent cm…. I hope to use that #boomXhakaLaca to torment our rivals.

  38. Victoria Concordia cresit….. The harmony will be back this season give us lemar sign him at all cost… That’s ambition.

  39. wilshere gets sold, AL gets his #10 shirt

  40. Lacazette really is a quality signing. If wenger sign Lemar, Goretzka, and Golovin that would be a dream come true.

  41. Just shows how you can still attract best players without CL football – you know need to show good intentions. In our worst season we still managed a trophy (Chelsea had zero trophy and finished mid-table last season). No doubt, Laca is good business at 53m (compared to Morata at 80m). Let’s step up the game beyond FA cup. Let’s hunt for EPL,..and more. This is what I see – Sanchozylaca!

  42. Every1 calling for mahrez, dont forget that it would mean a return to a 4-2-3-1 as opposed to the 5 at the back which served us so well at the end of the season. Money would be better spent on a top cm to partner xhaka
