Lacazette says £40,000-a-week star at Arsenal ‘can be’ one of the best

Arsenal striker Alexandre Lacazette has predicted a very bright future for one of his teammates at the Emirates stadium.

The Frenchman has entered his third season at the club after moving to north London during the summer of 2017.

Lacazette has had the chance to play with a variety of players during his time at the Emirates stadium, which has also seen him form a great partnership and friendship with Pierre Emerick-Aubameyang.

The duo are known as the best of friends by the Arsenal faithful but Lacazette has revealed that Matteo Guendouzi is another man who is close to him in the squad.

The former Lyon star recently witnessed his young teammate Guendouzi win the club’s ‘Player of the month’ award.

And according to Lacazette, the French youngster – an earner of £40,000-a-week wages (via Mirror) – has shown that he has what it takes to become one of the best in the world after his impressive displays so far this season.

“He is like the younger brother [in the friendship group with me and Auba]!” Lacazette told Arsenal.com. “We all really have a good relationship, we like to work and to laugh together so it’s really good.

“I’m really happy for Matteo [for being named September Player of the Month], he played really well, he helped the team when we needed him, he is really improving each season so we are all really happy with his performances this month.

“We can see that every top midfielder in the world is like this [in terms of demanding the ball and being brave]. They all want to take the ball.

“Matteo has a good ambition, he wants to be one of the best players in his position so every day he is trying to be the best and this month he showed that he can be.”
