Arsenal must not let go of Alexandre Lacazette, says Bacary Sagna

Former Arsenal defender Bacary Sagna has insisted his former side should do everything in their power to resign the Frenchman to a new contract as he is a natural leader with a drive to deliver the club’s visions . The French striker’s current contract is due to expire this summer.

Alexandre Lacazette has signed for Arsenal in the summer of 2017 from Lyon for a then-club record fee of an initial €53m plus up to €7m (£6.1m) in potential bonuses.

The French striker proved his goalscoring prowess for the Gunners as he scored 71 goals and registered 36 assists in 197 appearances in all competitions.

The 30-year-old featured sparingly in the starting line-up at the start of the current season but took on a bigger role as club captain and leader Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang left the club.

Lacazette has been a huge presence for his side as they look to finish the season well and secure their entry into the Champions League for next season.

The former Lyon striker has four assists and one goal in his last 5 games. The Arsenal captain could leave the club on a free transfer as his contract expires at the end of the season. Sagna called on Arsenal to act and tie Lacazette to a new contract.

“If I were Arsenal I would do everything they can to try to keep Lacazette. When you see the way he plays he’s a good leader, a natural leader, he’s been at the club for so long, so he knows the club perfectly,” Sagna told Genting Casino.
