Alexandre Lacazette Reveals Plan to Lure 'Best Mate' Antoine Griezmann to Arsenal



Alexandre Lacazette is finding life at Arsenal quite comfortable, having moved to the Emirates from Olympique Lyon during the summer.

The Frenchman has bagged four goals so far this season, and many expect the former Lyon striker to reach the levels of former star Thierry Henry at the Emirates in the future.

As good as Lacazette's projected to be, the Arsenal's No. 9 doesn't mind some help up front, and has jokingly revealed that he will try to bring Atletico Madrid Antoine Griezmann for the club soon.

The Atletico's striker was thought to be heading to Manchester United during the last window, but changed his mind after Atletico's transfer ban was upheld and signed a new deal with the Spanish side.

Griezmann spent time with his compatriot Lacazette in the United States during the holidays, and the Arsenal striker has told Match of the Day Magazine per the Telegraph that he will ask him to sign for Arsenal if they catch up in London.


"Yeah [Griezmann is my best mate], we are very good friends and have lots of fun," he said.

"Our nicknames for each other are Griezzy and Lacaz. If the Atletico's No. 7 forward visits me in London, I'm going to ask him to sign for Arsenal!"

He just might get his chance, with Griezmann set to travel to the English capital to play Chelsea in a Champions League group stage match in December.

The Rojiblancos hosted Antonio Conte's side at their new Wanda Metropolitano Stadium last week, losing 2-1, but will be hoping for better results when they make the trip to Stamford Bridge for the second bout.
