What Alexandre Lacazette said? The departure of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang got a lot of the Arsenal fanbase talking about his exit. The player left on a free transfer from the Emirates and the north London outfit ended up paying part of his wages till the end of the season. With that being said, the lack of goals at Arsenal in recent times has forced members of the Gunners’ fanbase to talk about the decision yet again. Now, Alexandre Lacazette has opened up on this matter and also talked about other things related to his own future plans and his former teammate.

The current skipper of Arsenal, Alexandre Lacazette, has not had the best of time in front of the goal in recent weeks. Though he was previously adding assists to his name for fun, his overall play in the last few games has been really poor.
