Arsenal’s France International striker Alexander Lacazette has revealed the main reason behind his move to the Emirates stadium at the start of the season, reports the Mirror
According to him, his move from Lyon to Arsenal was influenced by the festive period. He said he wants to experience his first Christmas away from home.“When every weekend you watch the Premier League, you tell yourself, one day why not? You think about one day feeling that atmosphere and experiencing that time in December, experiencing a season in the Premier League and knowing what it’s like,” Lacazette said.
He wants to experience how hectic the League becomes during the period. The Frenchman who hasn’t found the back of the net in four consecutive matches might be in action against Liverpool on Friday.
Lacazette also told Arsenal.com that coming to Arsenal is a dream come true. He said he always dreamt of playing in the Premier League in order to experience how the festive period looks like in London.
Arsenal are in the fifth position with 34 points on the Premier League log. The Gunners came from behind to lead Liverpool and even went ahead before a defensive error cost them the three points.
Lacazette joined Arsenal from Lyon on a five-year contract for an Arsenal record-fee of €53million, approximately £46.5 million. He has featured in 15 matches and has scored eight goals so far this season for the Gunners.
