Lacazette had refused PSG to join Arsenal, this is the reason
Alexandre Lacazette has revealed that he is willing to refuse to move to Paris Saint-Germain to join Arsenal this summer. And it turns out, Lyon became the reason Lacazette unwilling to cross to Paris.
Lacazette has been linked with La Liga club Atletico Madrid at the start of the transfer window but when his move failed because of a transfer ban imposed by FIFA, the striker has more and more devotees.
PSG has been consistently associated with Lacazette’s move, with those who are trying to sharpen their line of attack. But in the end Lacazette failed to get them, and Neymar and Kylian Mbappe eventually became new residents of Unai Emery’s team.
Lacazette then joined Arsenal in a deal worth 52.7 million pounds. Interviewed recently, Lacazette also revealed the reason for rejecting PSG and choosing to join Arsenal.
“We talked to PSG but I know it’s not where I want to go. In France, I only play for Lyon, “Lacazette told RMC Sport.
“PSG can help me move forward because of the big players they have, but I want to play in other leagues,” he added.
Fix performance in away match
Lacazette has adapted well in North London, where she scored four goals in her first four matches at the Emirates Stadium.
“At Emirates I’m efficient. Now I have to keep moving forward and have the same stats when playing in the opponent’s cage. Still have to work on some points, even though it’s going well. I can still develop my co-operation with midfielders and defenders. I also want to be tough in front of goal because in England the referee does not [blow] whistle, “he concluded.
As an attacker, Lacazette has been the main striker on Arsene Wenger’s core team this season. His presence makes Olivier Giroud more frequent to play as a substitute. But that does not make harmony in the body of Arsenal disturbed, because so far they still have a record of a good match and occupy the fifth position in the standings. (Source: Four Four Two)
