Arsenal manager Mkel Arteta has suggested Alexandre Lacazette is one of the best footballers in his Gunners dressing room.
Lacazette’s future is up in the air while his contract with Arsenal is set to run its course on in June 2021, and rumours have been flying with suggestions he is heading for the exit door, instead of a new contract in North London.
However, Arteta has been watching over a quality player that apparently deserves a contract extension.
“He has been in really good form for months now,” Arteta said via Goal.
“He is sustaining that level, scoring goals and providing the team with something different as well. His work rate has been phenomenal and it’s what we want.
“We need those type of players hitting the best level because over the course of the season we have been missing goals, that creativity in the final third and we need those players to step in and make the difference for the team,” the Spaniard concluded.
