Alexandre Lacazette Completes Medical Ahead of Arsenal Move
After quite a protracted saga, it seems like Alexandre Lacazette is finally in the bag.
He was believed to arrive at London yesterday for a medical with Arsenal which was completed as well, according to the Guardian. The French forward is set to be Arsenal’s record signing with a deal believed to have cost £52.7m, surpassing what the Gunners paid for Mesut Ozil in 2013. I’m very certain that the 888sport free betting offer for Alex Lacazette to finish as the highest goal scorer in the league would be high, but you’d have to visit the site out and check for the odds,
Lacazette would say goodbye to the club he served with distinction for eight years, scoring 129 goals in 275 appearances. His last four seasons with Olympique Lyonnais have been very prolific with the Frenchman hitting the target an astonishing 37 times, including that this awesome strike against Roma that was followed with a stone cold celebration…
Lacazette would know that there would be high expectations of him and in a club like Arsenal, he’s sure to receive a boatload of passes from one of the most creative midfields in the Premier League. His move has been met with mixed emotions but avid watchers of the game would know that Arsenal have landed a very good forward that would lead the line for years to come. He would also want to join the League ofEextraordinary French Forwards like Nicolas Anelka, Thierry Henry and Slyvain Wiltord that etched their names in Arsenal folklore for their performances on the pitch.
I’m also very elated with the fact that we will no longer get any updates from Lyon’s chairman, Jean-Michel Aulas. That bloke turned to some really annoying Lacazette live commentary expert, feeding the world with all sorts of news that in come cases were relevant, and in others, pretty not,
Monday: ‘Lacazette wants to leave Lyon’
Tuesday: ‘I had dinner with Arsene Wenger and Ivan Gazidis. The steak at the diner in London was superb’
Wednesday: ‘I have told Arsenal that Atletico paid a gazillion pounds for Lacazette. That transfer ban on them was a real bitch’
Thursday: ‘Have I told you guys that Lacazette wants to leave? Oh wait, I think I need a swap deal for Olivier Giroud’
Friday: ‘Bleeeeeh, Arsenal has told me that they can’t match what Atletico offered and they want to keep Giroud too’
Saturday: ‘I should travel to Russia ahead of the Confederations Cup final. Maybe I can use the money Arsenal offered me for Lacazette to sign Alexis Sanchez.’
Sunday: ‘The cat is out of the bag guys. I mummified Lacazette and sent him on a plane to London. Don’t worry, birds would not attack the plane like Princess Ahmanet’.
All we can do is wait for the imminent announcement on Arsenal’s official website, then Lacazette would come out to say that the LITTLE BOY INSIDE HIM wanted him to come to Arsenal.
