Arsenal striker responds to Barcelona transfer speculation

Lacazette flattered by Barca interest

Arsenal striker responds to Barcelona transfer speculation

12 May 2019 - 20:05

Arsenal striker Alexandre Lacazette has refused to dismiss the prospect of joining Barcelona when the transfer window reopens at the end of the season.

  • Chelsea suffer fresh injury blow ahead of Europa League final
  • Manchester United set asking price for versatile defender

  • The Frenchman has enjoyed a fruitful second campaign with the Gunners and this has already seen him named as the club's Player of the Year.

    A recent report from AS suggested that Lacazette could emerge as a target for Barcelona, should they fail to sign Antoine Griezmann, and when asked about the same, Lacazette told Telefoot: "It’s flattering."

    Lacazette has contributed 19 goals and 10 assists during the ongoing campaign and his tally remains only behind Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, who has bagged 31 goals and seven assists.

    As such, it would come as a surprise if the Gunners even consider the prospect of sanctioining his sale, and a report from The Mail has suggested that talks are being planned with the front duo regarding new contracts.

    Arsenal end their campaign with a Europa League final against Chelsea in Baku at the end of the month and they must overcome the hurdle in order to return to next season's Champions League.
