An interesting story has appeared in the media today (Saturday). Apparently, Dmitry Cheltsov, the agent of Alexandre Lacazette, offered Zenit Saint Petersburg the chance to sign the French forward this summer.
TalkSPORT have relayed an interview Cheltsov gave to Sport Business Gazeta, quoting him in saying, “I offered Alexandre Lacazette to Zenit”.
If this is true, then there are several questions that need to be asked here. First of all – whose idea was this? Is it something Lacazette knew about beforehand? Because if he did, then Arsenal have a potential “player wants out” problem in the near future. If not, how was Cheltsov planning to explain to his client that he was working on a deal to send him to Russia? .......Read more here.....

So the North London Derby ended in a draw, with the two teams scoring two goals apiece.
Perhaps it’s too early at the moment, but the immediate feeling is – disappointment. More than anything else, it feels like an opportunity missed, a chance for Arsenal to pull away from their fiercest rivals and closest neighbours gone down the drain. The teams could have been five points apart, a big advantage this early in the season, but as it is, the gap remains only two. .......Read more here.....

There’s no way of getting around it: Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang are both vitally important to the success of Arsenal Football Club. The two men make up one of the deadliest strike partnerships not only in English football, but in all of Europe. With their contracts being set to expire in 2021 and 2022, you can understand why there’s a certain level of trepidation as to whether or not they will be in North London beyond those years.
Now, as reported by Yahoo Sport UK, manager Unai Emery has added some much needed clarity to the situation. .......Read more here.....

There are some strike partnerships that work and others that don’t which, you know, is kind of the point. You’ve got to get through the bad in order to get to the good, and in the world of football, you just never know how long the ‘bad’ is going to last. When it comes to Arsenal Football Club they’ve certainly been through their fair share of good and bad, but now, they’ve managed to come out on the other side of it with one of the best strike partnerships in the game – in our humble opinion, that is. .......Read more here.....

The representatives of Alexandre Lacazette have held discussions with Arsenal’s hierarchy over the possibilities for the future of the Frenchman, according to the Mirror.
Various reports were linking Lacazette with Barcelona for a long time, with the Catalans on the lookout for a suitable successor to the 32-year-old Luis Suarez. However, it now appears that Atletico Madrid have expressed an interest in his services as well. That was, apparently, the reason behind Lacazette’s representatives seeking and holding talks with the club. .......Read more here.....

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.
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. .......Read more here.....

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”. .......Read more here.....

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. .......Read more here.....

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. .......Read more here.....

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. .......Read more here.....
