Why I Turned Down PSG for Arsenal – Lacazette Opens Up


Alexandre Lacazette has revealed he turned down the chance to join Paris Saint-Germain this summer, favouring amove to Arsenal and the Premier League instead.

The 26-year-old held talks with PSG over a potential move to the Parc des Princes in a transfer that could have seen him line up alongside Neymar andKylian Mbappe.

But the Frenchman opted for a move tothe Emirates, signing for Arsenal in a club record £46.5m deal.Despite passing on the opportunity to play Champions League football with PSG, Lacazette insists he has no regrets in snubbing the French giants.

“We talked to PSG but I knew it was not where I wanted to go. In France, I wouldonly play for Lyon,”Lacazette told RMC Sport.“PSG could have helped me progress because of the big players they have but I wanted to play in another league.

”Lacazette has hit the ground running innorth London, netting four goals in his first seven league appearances for Arsenal.

Although his side currently sit six points off the pace in the title race, the Frenchman has still backed the Gunners to compete with their top-six rivals.

“I believe in the title, whether in the Premier League or in the Europa League,”he added.“We have a big group, everyone gets along, it’s not always the best that wins.”
