Gunners did a perfect job yesterday at Greek capital. As they ensured a swift progress into Europa league Semis. Arteta was aware that the return fixture was a do or die. For both the players and himself as far as European football is concerned next season.
With plenty of trust on young and vibrant players. Especially around some experienced lads it all but paid off. Lacazette was trusted with ensuring Gunners, put at least one goal past the Slavia keeper. And with the pace around him in Saka and Smith it bore significant fruits.
The Frenchman went on to score two while Saka and Pepe scored each a piece. Despite interest from Roma and Atletico Madrid last summer. Lacazette stayed put at Emirates Stadium. But as per now no discussions on his future, at Emirates Stadium have taken place.
As back in January his manager, Mikel stated clearly the club will make a decision. On the Frenchman's future by the end of the season. Lacazette seems to play his best football. When his around speedy wingers or rather players.
And Arteta may as well be tempted to add him a new contract. Considering he's building his team around speedy players. Like Saka, Rowe, Gabriel, Nketiah and of course Pepe. Lacazette is the current club top goalscorer with 17 in all competitions.
Lacazette said,"I am really happy, its only the press that says I'm not happy. From the beginning I've said am happy at Arsenal. And I want to play and win titles. We won a title last month so I am happy with Arsenal." Concluded the Frenchman as per Football.london.
