Arsenal’s most valuable stars – Part 2 0

Alexandre Lacazette

When Lacazette is playing at the top of his game, he’s one of the best strikers in the Premier League and it really is that simple. The Frenchman gives 110% every time he’s out there, and hopefully, he’s still got enough confidence to take him through a full season in the Premier League.

Mesut Ozil 

There have been too many near misses and too many mistakes to warrant keeping him at the club. Mesut Ozil has been a controversial figure in the last few years, and getting rid of him now would be a massive statement – but in a good way. Arsenal need the best of the best within their ranks, and this man doesn’t fit into that category in 2019.

Arsenal’s French striker Alexandre Lacazette has been talking about the importance of centre-back Laurent Koscielny in the Gunners run to tonight’s Europa League final against Chelsea.

Respect for his compatriot

Talking about his teammate, Lacazette told Teamtalk: “He worked all summer to come back quickly and when he came back he played four games in a row after a big injury. That is really hard.

“He has helped us all season to be better in defence. We all have big respect for Laurent. A really big respect”.

Happy Birthday, Alexandre! 0

Birthdays come and go for all of us, but sometimes, it’s nice to use a birthday as a reason to reflect – especially if the birthday belongs to one of your favourite players. Today, Alexandre Lacazette turns 28 years old, just 24 hours prior to running out in Baku for the UEFA Europa League final. The expectation is that he’s going to start the game alongside Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, and to be honest, we think that’s where the game could be won and lost.

Lacazette linked with a move to Atletico Madrid 0

According to the Daily Express, Atletico Madrid are planning a big-money summer move for Arsenal striker Alexandre Lacazette. The French forward has been a vital player for the Gunners this season for both goals and assists.

Atletico looking for a Griezmann

Atletico Madrid look set to lose French World Cup winner Antoine Griezmann this summer, as a release clause in his contract of around a reported £104million becomes active on July 1st.

Griezmann has already revealed that he will leave the club from the Spanish capital this summer after five years. Reportedly he has already agreed a deal to sign to La Liga rivals Barcelona, who came close to signing the forward last summer.

The days have started to tick by in the aftermath of Arsenal’s Premier League season coming to an end, and while the Europa League final is still to come, it’s been interesting to look back and reflect on the campaign. There were highs and there were probably even more lows, but along the way, we’ve been able to pick up on a few really entertaining ‘points’ if you will.

Aubameyang joint-winner of the Premier League Golden Boot 0

On Sunday afternoon, Arsenal defeated Burnley 3-1 at Turf Moor in the Premier League. In the end, the result did not matter, as the Gunners still finished fifth-place in the table, a point behind north London rivals Tottenham.

However, one fact that did matter in the clash in Lancashire was that Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scored a brace. The double saw the former Dortmund star finished as the joint-top scorer in the Premier League this season with Liverpool pair Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah on 22 league goals for the season. It is a great honour to win the Golden Boot, but it will come as little surprise to Arsenal fans.

Arsenal to give Lacazette and Aubameyang new deals 0

Arsenal will move to secure the futures of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette by giving them fresh contracts, according to Daily Mail.

Both strikers starred in Arsenal’s two-leg triumph over Valencia in the Europa League semifinal, but that only confirmed what has been obvious for a long time; that their contribution is immensely important for this Arsenal side. Recognizing that, the club will look to make sure they don’t go anywhere any time soon.

Barcelona eye Lacazette 0

Barcelona are still looking for a long-term replacement for Luis Suarez. The Uruguayan, who tore up the Premier League defences in 2013/14 with Liverpool with 31 goals to his name but had no problem celebrating scoring against them earlier this week, is 32 years old now, and though he is still a remarkable player, the Catalans must prepare for the future without him. The same applies to their superstar captain, Lionel Messi.

Barcelona tried to bring in Luka Jović. The Serbian youngster has been on fire this season for Eintracht Frankfurt on loan from Benfica, a move that has recently been made permanent. However, the deal stalled and fell through apparently, and Real Madrid now reportedly have a deal in place to snap the 21-year-old striker up.

Gunners need to hold their nerve in Spain to reach Europa League final 0

On Thursday night, Arsenal recorded a 3-1 home win over Valencia in the Europa League semi-final first leg. A first-half double from Alexandre Lacazette and a last-gasp Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s cancelled out the visitor’s opener scored by Mouctar Diakhaby.

The victory was a much-needed one after three straight defeats. It also gives the Gunners a solid advantage heading to Spain for the second leg. Unai Emery’s side now just need to hold their nerve in the second leg to make it to the final.

Napoli v Arsenal Europa League Preview 0

Posted on April 17, 2019 by David Nugent

On Thursday night, Arsenal visits Napoli’s San Paolo in the Europa League quarter-final second leg. The Gunners hold a 2-0 lead from the first leg at the Emirates Stadium.

Napoli’s recent form has been unconvincing at home and abroad. Carlo Ancelotti’s team ended a three-game winless run in all competitions by recording a 3-1 win at Chievo.

The home sides recent record in the Europa League is not great, as they have suffered defeats against Salzburg and of course Arsenal in the first leg. However, prior to the defeats, the Italian side had recorded four straight European victories.
