Striker Alexandre Lacazette has said that his Arsenal future does not depend on colleague Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s stay at the club.
The Frenchman has another two years left on his deal, while Aubameyang is entering the final year of his contract.
There has been speculation that Lacazette might rethink the continuation of his career at Arsenal if Aubameyang leaves. The two are known to have a close relationship on and off the pitch.
Speaking ahead of their FA Cup final clash against Chelsea tonight, Saturday, 1st August, at Wembley Stadium in London, Lacazette dismissed the allegation.
“No, really. Because we know that Auba has had a lot of discussions with the club and I can’t put my future on anyone else. When he came first, everyone knew how come we had a good relationship,” Lacazette told Sky Sports.
“We always talk about everything, not just a matter of football but also everything in life. He is a good person. That is why between us everything is very easy.”
Commenting on his future at Arsenal, Lacazette said he is happy with his career and most importantly to play for his “dream club”, Arsenal.
“I play for Arsenal, my dream club in the UK. I’m still happy about my career but obviously I would love to win more trophies and this one can make me happier in my Arsenal journey.”
Lacazette became Arsenal’s top scorer in the 2017/2018 season with 17 goals. The 29-year-old player has so far amassed 48 goals in 126 appearances.
