Lacazette rules out arsenal move

Alexandre Lacazette has drawn a line under speculation linking with a move to Arsenal and insists he is now focused on playing for Lyon.

The French attacker was heavily linked with a move away from the Ligue 1 one side with both Arsenal and West Ham having made bids during the closed season.

Arsene Wenger has been under huge pressure to sign a striker this summer and Gonzalo Higuain and Jamie Vardy had already rejected moves to the Emirates.

And it seems a move for Lacazette is not possible after he confirmed his desire to stay in France.

‘Concerning my personal situation, I do not think there will be a departure from Lyon,’ he said after scoring both goals in Lyon’s 2-0 win over Caen.


I'm happy: Lacazette rules out Arsenal transfer

Wenger has missed out on yet another target 

‘Everything is going well here.

‘I would like to pass the bar of 100 goals in all competitions. I would like to do that at the Parc Olympique Lyonnais.’

The 25-year-old has made a good start to achieving that feat having scored five goals in his opening two matches this season.
