Alexandre Lacazette has denied reports that he has an agreement to leave Arsenal this summer. He claimed to feel at home in the North London club.
Currently, Lacazette still leaves a contract with Arsenal which will expire in 2022 and he has not agreed to renew his contract. That’s what invites speculation about his future and recently The Times reported that the French striker was allowed to leave Arsenal.
If Lacazette enters the last six months of his contract, he can sign the pre-contract agreement and leave without compensation. But the 28-year-old beard attacker never thought he would leave the London Cannon.
Being asked whether Lacazette knew there were reports that he would leave Arsenal. ‘I do not know about this, so I can not talk far. No, I do not know. I have a contract with the club, so there is no point for me to go if everyone is happy with me at the club,’ Lacazette said, Thursday (27/2).
Lacazette is currently known to be in high confidence after scoring two goals in his last two matches with Arsenal. That success at least dampened the problem on the front lines of the Gunners.
‘There is pressure but this is more about me because I want to score goals and I want to help my team. Obviously, I am a striker but I’m not just here to score goals. I have to help the team to defend, to build the game. For me it’s not the best thing is when I don’t score, but my staff and teammates help me through this,’ Lacazette added.
