arsenal to offer nw contract to lacazette

Alexandre Lacazette is one of the best strikers in the Premier League in the last few seasons. Needless to say, every Arsenal fan loves the player, which is why we expect the club to offer him a new contract.

In recent interviews, Arsenal’s manager Mikel Arteta said that he is happy with Lacazette. Still, he hasn’t talked with the player about a new contract yet. There were rumours a few months ago that Atletico Madrid would try to bring over the 29-old strikes. However, he quickly stated that he is happy in London, and he doesn’t want to change his team yet.

Lacazette’s last season wasn’t the best in his career. Although he scored a few goals here and there, Aubameyang was the main star for the team. It seems like Lacazette made some changes because he started this season really strong by scoring goals in both of Arsenal’s wins.

The current situation

As of today, the French superstar has two years left on his contract, which is one of the reasons why there are so many speculations over his future at the club. However, Lacazette clearly said that he wants to stay with the Gunners, which is why we think that it will be just a matter of time before he signs a new contract.

Needless to say, Arteta wants to keep the player in the club because he had a major impact on Arsenal’s performance in the last couple of years. So, despite not having a talk with him about his new contract yet, this is likely going to happen soon, especially after Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang signed a new deal just a few days ago.

Lacazette played a vital part in Arsenal’s recent success against West Ham this Saturday. He scored the first goal for his team, which gave them the lead. Despite that, the Hammers managed to equalize the result just a few seconds before the first half ended. Luckily, Arsenal’s constant pressure finally paid off when Nketiah scored the winning goal 10 minutes before the end of the match.

Lacazette’s history in Arsenal

The French player was supposedly going to join Atletico Madrid in 2017. Everything was set, but, sadly, Atletico received a ban on registering new players. As a result, Lacazette signed an exclusive five-year contract with Arsenal, one of Premier League’s most prominent teams. The club paid the whopping amount of £53,000,000, which meant that this was Lyon’s biggest transfer yet. Needless to say, this was also the case for Arsenal because their previous record transfer was £50,000,000.

Lacazette’s first appearance for Arsenal was in the Community Shield match back in 2017 against Chelsea. Although the game ended with a score of 1-1, Arsenal was able to win the penalty shoot out and won the trophy.

Although he played really well that season, the French superstar definitely shined the most during season 2018-19. In fact, this is when he became the Arsenal Player of the Season, which is a pretty big achievement.
