Alexandre Lacazette is at a turning point. At the age of 30, the striker’s contract expires on June 30. After five years at Arsenal, a club where he’s had ups and downs, the Frenchman needs to settle down and think about his future. A topic that he spoke about extensively in an interview with the Channel Football Club. And the international tricolor (3 goals, 16 selections) doesn’t rule anything out for his future. He first mentioned the Gunners. The Frenchy has not closed the door to an extension inside the London club.
“You have to respect football, you also have to respect your partners. I appreciate being here, I appreciate the boys and for me it’s a way to give them back the respect and affection that we all have together. I want to leave a good image in the club. That we end up in the Champions League, where we haven’t been for almost five years. If I do, mission accomplished. Is it possible that I’ll still be at Arsenal next season? Anything is possible, nothing is being done, I haven’t ruled out Arsenal. So everything is possible”.
Lacazette doesn’t say no to Lyon, but…
Currently, however, the trend is towards the departure of the center forward (6 goals, 8 assists), whose name is associated with FC Barcelona and Olympique Lyon. With regard to his training association, the information is very accurate, as the main prospect confirms. “Talking to OL? I’m in talks with many clubs, I’m open. I never cut ties with Lyon since I left. I try to come back to the club once or twice a year to see the medical staff because we are very close. So yeah, now that OL knows I’m free, they came to the information.. But the residents of Groupama Stadium will have a lot to do to convince him to come home.
“I want to play Europe, it’s been a long time since I’ve played the Champions League, I miss it. After all, nothing is impossible in life. But it gets a little more complicated. Can they consider the possible return of other ex-gones like Corentin Tolisso or Samuel Umtiti? “It would be good, but it’s not up to me to decide. It’s true that it’s a bit sad and a pity because we all left at the same time, it could have been a mistake by the club. I know Lukeba, Caqueret, Cherki doing a job or Gusto bring quality. It’s great, but we’ll see for the future.”. OL therefore still has a chance to bring back an Alexandre Lacazette whose future will be decided in the coming weeks.
