Alexandre Lacazette has joked that he will attempt to persuade Antoine Griezmann to join Arsenal.
Lacazette became Arsenal’s club-record signing in the summer after joining from Lyon, and is international teammates with Griezmann.
The Atletico Madrid forward has been linked with a move to the Premier League in recent seasons, with both Manchester United and Chelsea credited with an interest.
But Lacazette hopes that his relationship with his fellow Frenchman can persuade him to move to the Emirates Stadium.
“Yeah [Griezmann is my best mate], we are very good friends and have lots of fun,” Lacazette told Match of the Day magazine.
“Our nicknames for each other are Griezzy and Lacaz. If Griezzy visits me in London, I’m going to ask him to sign for Arsenal!”
