Arsenal striker Alexandre Lacazette has finally broken silence amid talk of a summer transfer to Barcelona.
Earlier this month, reports in Spain claimed that the La Liga champions were considering a shock move for the France international as they look to provide competition to Luis Suarez in the centre-forward role.
The Frenchman picked up the club’s Player of the Year award after netting 19 goals as well as registering 10 assists in 46 appearances across all competitions this season.
But it would appear that Lacazette is not ruling anything out just yet.
“It is flattering!,” he told Telefoot, as per Get French Football News when asked about the La Liga outfit’s reported interest.
Some Arsenal fans took to Twitter to let their feelings be known that they are against losing another player to Barcelona.
They should keep Umtiti and Gomes. @LacazetteAlex is a Gunner 4 Life!!!
