- Alexandre Lacazette has snubbed claims about leaving Arsenal
- The Frenchman was handed his first start of the season but scored the winner against Cardiff
- Lacazette netted seven times in four games with strike partner Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang
Arsenal French forward Alexandre Lacazette has rejected reports suggesting he wants to quit the club insisting he is happy to be at ‘one of the best clubs.”
According to a UK Sun report citing Sky Sports, the Frenchman who joined the Emirates side for a massive £52m from Lyon 12 months ago, has rubbished reports claiming he wanted out of the Premier League side, due to lack of action before the trip to Cardiff City.
Interestingly, Arsenal manager Unai Emery handed the 27-year-old forward his first start upfront alongside Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang against Cardiff on Sunday after playing from the bench in his first three Premier League games.
The French forward showed his qualities by netting in the dying minutes of the game to secure a precious 3-2 first away victory for Arsenal this term.
“I don't know who said this stuff, but I am at one of the best clubs in London and I am happy at Arsenal.
“It's always going to be hard to be in the first XI at a club like this, but I always keep fighting and working. I won't play every week just because of one game.
“Every day I have to work and show the coach I work well and I deserve my place,” he said.
Speaking further, Lacazette revealed it was exciting to play alongside
Aubameyang for the fourth time since the Gabonese arrived in January from Bundesliga campaigners Borussia Dortmund.
And the France star is looking forward to more partnership with the former African Footballer of the Year winner.
“It's nice to play together because we complement each other's strengths.
“He deserved to score because he has worked so hard since the start of the season.
“The Chelsea game was hard for him because he missed some chances, but it was nice to play well with him. The system was good, we worked on it all week. It was different, but good,” Lacazette submitted.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng previously had reported that Alexandre Lacazette has revealed that Gunners squad members are learning “like children” from new Spanish manager Unai Emery.
According to a UK Sun report, the former Lyon striker admitted that Arsenal are still poor defensively, as they are mastering a new pressing style that have also seen shot-stopper Petr Cech struggle most times while restarting play from the back.
The Frenchman Lacazette believes will time the Gunners will get it right but with a prize as they have won twice and lost to Chelsea and Manchester City.
