Alexandre Lacazette has shot down links with Lyon by declaring his intent to stay at Arsenal.
The French forward, 28, has just over two years left on his current contract at the Emirates having joined in a £52million deal from Lyon in 2017, but it’s believed he will be allowed to leave the Gunners should the right offer arrive.
And over the last few days, there has been big interest from Seria A Champions Juventus, who are seeking to overhaul the squad and are very interested in tempting the striker away from the Gunners this season.
And there has also been interest from Lyon, according to reports, with suggestions that Arsenal could offer the Frenchman to Lyon as a sweetener in their bid to sign up £54 million rated Houssem Aouar.
But Many Arsenal fans are desperate for the striker to stay, and now he has opened up and told the club that he is keen to stay at the club this summer window, The striker confirmed on Sky Sports: “I am really happy. It’s only the press that says I’m not happy. From the beginning I’ve said I am happy at Arsenal and I want to play and win titles.
“We won a title last month so I am happy with Arsenal.
“We have a lot of big ambition. We know Auba is going to score a lot of goals this season.
“I want to help the team to be on top, I know it’s my job. It’s not for me to [just] play and do the link-ups so I will try and do my best this season.”
Lacazette is a world class striker that has done a decent job at the Emirates since his arrival, so the fact that Arsenal are ready to sell him this summer, is not good news for the club.
So the news that he wants to stay will be a big boost for the fans, but that doesnt mean that he will if the right offer arrives.
