Lacazette scores two more, rules out Arsenal move

Alexandre Lacazette has ruled out a move to Arsenal this summer after scoring two more goals for Lyon.

Lacazette was the subject of a £29m bid from the Gunners in July, one which Lyon promptly rejected.

The striker himself hinted that he was open to offers from elsewhere, while it was revealed earlier this month that an extra £10m on top of Arsenal’s initial offer could secure the Frenchman’s services.

Lacazette has started the season in blistering form, scoring each of Lyon’s five goals in 3-0 and 2-0 Ligue Un victories, and the 25-year-old says he is happy in France.

“Concerning my personal situation, I do not think there will be a departure from Lyon,” he said after scoring twice against Caen. “Everything is going well here.

“I would like to pass the bar of 100 goals in all competitions. I would like to do that at the Parc Olympique Lyonnais.”
