- Peter Olayinka is expected to lead Slavia Prague's attack against Arsenal in Europa League
- The Nigerian striker has confirmed his readiness for the clash against the English club
- Arsenal got into the final of the Europa League competition last two seasons
Nigerian striker Peter Olayinka who currently plays for Slavia Prague has stated clearly that he is ready to help his team overcome Arsenal in their Europa League clash on Thursday night.
The Premier League side will be playing at the Emirates stadium in the first leg of their quarterfinal clash against Slavia Prague.
Already, Peter Olayinka and his teammates have knocked out Premier League side Leicester City in the Europa League as they face another big task against an English club.
While speaking ahead of his side's game against Arsenal, Peter Olayinka made it clear that he is ready for the Gunners and his team would get impressive result.
“I am focused on the match and I am looking forward to it. It’s great to be in such a stadium.
“We did well in the last outdoor matches and I believe that we can show an equally good performance on Thursday.''
Last two seasons, Arsenal were in the final of the Europa League and lost against fellow Premier League side Chelsea.
Olayinka started his career in army children in Ibadan before moving to 36 Lion FC football academy and in January 2012 he joined Bylis in the Kategoria Superiore where he initially joined the club's under-19s due to being just 17 at the time.
He has played only one game so far for the Super Eagles of Nigeria.
The Frenchman has refused to sign an extension to remain at the Emirates Stadium despite having about 18 months left on his current deal.
However, the Gunners will be looking to cash in on him and use the funds for another quality transfer when he leaves.
He has been a major part of Mikel Arteta's squad this campaign scoring nine goals and two assists in 23 Premier League appearances.
In spite of his exploits with the North Londoners this campaign, Lacazette might be eyeing a move away from his present club for a fresh challenge elsewhere.
