Arteta sends a message to Atlético about Lacazette

Mikel Arteta, Arsenal manager, confirmed at a press conference that Alexandre Lacazette is happy at the English club and closed his door to a possible exit this summer.

The Spanish coach was asked about the situation of the French attacker one day after the start of Arsenal's adventure in the Premier League against Fulham.

“He is very happy here,” said Arteta. “He wants to keep improving and contributing to the team. I know how good he is and the impact he's having.”

“He knows about the competition he has with the rest of the players above and needs to ask himself to be the best forward in the club, just like the rest. He is very happy to know that and the way he has trained and behaved has been excellent, “argued the Spaniard.

This was Arteta's response to the possible interest from clubs like Atlético de Madrid by the Gallic attacker.

Also, Arteta also recommended that Arsenal fans relax in the face of doubts about the renewal of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, who has been entrenched all summer, and assured that he is very optimistic about her.

As AS said yesterday, Lacazette's main option in the event that he leaves is Atlético de Madrid. The Frenchman prefers to sign for the rojiblanco team rather than for Juventus. The operation is complicated, although it cannot be ruled out.
