Dream strike partner? Alexandre Lacazette admits he’s a big fan of Arsenal transfer target

Arsenal striker Alexandre Lacazette admits he’s a big fan of Anthony Martial and enjoys playing alongside him and Kylian Mbappe in the France national team.

The youngster hasn’t always been a regular for Manchester United this season, but has long been talked up as one of the most exciting young talents in Europe.

According to the Daily Mirror, Martial has been one of the players on Arsene Wenger’s radar to replace Alexis Sanchez, though it remains to be seen if there’s any chance Jose Mourinho would sell to his old nemesis.

Still, Lacazette clearly enjoys partnering him in attack, so Wenger may want to take note of his words after they combined to such devastating effect in France’s 2-2 draw with Germany last night.
