France international striker to heap more misery on Arsene Wenger after hinting at Lyon stay

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger looks set to be dealt another dose of misery after long-term target Alexandre Lacazette admitting that he is “happy” at Lyon according to The Sun.

Lacazette scored a hat-trick during his clubs 3-0 over Nancy on Sunday. The 25-year-old hinted that he will remain at the club after stating that he wants to reach 100 Ligue 1 goals.

“I am happy here. I would like to reach 100 goals in Ligue 1,” Lacazette was quoted as saying by the Sun.

“We are very happy because the first match against a promoted team is always perilous. This is a very good week.

“Congratulations to [coach] Bruno [Genesio], for his talk has borne fruit. We are very happy and will enjoy tonight but we must keep our feet on the ground this season.”

However, the Daily Mail also state that Lyon have no intention of selling their star striker having already raised £21 million after selling Samuel Umtiti to Barcelona.

Lacazette has scored 23 goals and provided four assists in 44 appearances for Lyon in all competitions this season. The 25-year-old has racked up a total of 72 goals in 172 appearances for the Ligue 1 giants since graduating from Lyon’s academy in 2010.
