Alexandre Lacazette shoots down rumors he wants to leave Arsenal

Rumors are always going to swirl when it comes to upcoming transfer windows. For Arsenal star forward Alexandre Lacazette, this is already the case. 

 

Word around London is the French standout wants to leave the Gunners if the team fails to qualify for Champions League play next season. When asked about those rumors this week, Lacazette was straight and to the point in stating they simply are not true. 

"I didn't know about this," Lacazette said of the transfer rumors. "I have a contract with the club, so there is no point for me to leave if everybody is happy with me at the club."

 

As it stands, Arsenal is in ninth place of the English Premier League table with its 37 points. That's seven points behind fourth-place Chelsea and four behind fifth-place Manchester United. 

 

While it may be tough to qualify for the Champions League for next campaign, that won't affect Lacazette. He's a Gunner through and through. Thus far this season, he has six goals in 19 league matches.
