Flattered to have Entered Barcelona’s List of Targets, Lacazette Leaves Arsenal?
DBasia.news – The French Arsenal striker, Alexandre Lacazette, entered Barcelona’s list of trageted players who were looking for potential successors for Luis Suarez. Lacazette was allegedly flattered by the offer.
“This (Barcelona’s interest) flattered me,” Lacazette said when asked by the media crew about the interest from Barcelona, as reported by the US.
There is a golden age of European footballer, 27 years old, and being the Best Player of the Arsenal 2018/19 season, Lacazette is believed to be Barcelona’s top official to have the right profile to replace Suarez.
Moreover, Barcelona has Clement Lenglet, Samuel Umtiti, Ousmane Dembele, and Jean-Clair Todibo – four players who are also from France. The temptation to play in Barcelona with the chance to win a big trophy, plus a team with a superstar, Lionel Messi, can tempt Lacazette to leave.
This season, Lacazette appeared 46 times in all competitions with incised 19 goals and 10 assists. His duet with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is a dangerous duo in Europe. Besides that, Lacazette still has the chance to win the trophy this season.
Arsenal will fight Chelsea in the Europa League final which takes place in Baku, Azerbaijan, on Thursday (30/5) WIB. Lacazette’s performance will not escape the observation of Barcelona’s scouts in the match.
