Right after signing at Arsenal, he said he always admired and followed the club, mostly through the successes of Thierry Henry and other French players wearing its jersey.
Now, he revealed another detail that played its role in accepting Arsenal’s offer, and again it has to do with a fellow countryman.
We’ve had a lot of contact over the last few years and even more over the last few weeks, of course, since it became increasingly likely that I would come to Arsenal
Alexandre Lacazette told Arsenal Player, referring to new teammate Francis Coquelin.
He has said only good things about Arsenal, which is not surprising because he wanted me to join the club. Even without that I still really wanted to come here
the new Gunners’ signing said, giving a few more details regarding Coquelin’s… brainwashing.
He stressed that it was a great club located in a fantastic city. He said I would not regret my decision to move here because of the people I’d be working with and, of course, the fans
the France international said, eager to start writing a new chapter in his career as an Arsenal player.
