Alexander Lacazette

In-form Arsenal striker Alexandre Lacazette has revealed that the target this season is for the club to at least secure Champions League football.

The French international star made this known in an interview with popular English channel Sky Sports and that the team is keen to win a title this season.

Lacazette also spoke about his partnership with friend and brother Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

He also pointed out that there’s no competition on who will score more between him and the Gabonese international striker.

Alexandre Lacazette became an Arsenal player last summer after the Gunners paid French side Olympique Lyon a then club-record transfer fee of £46.5m.

He scored within three minutes of his debut against Leicester City and went on to score eight goals in his first 15 appearances for the North Londoners before suffering a barren run which saw him score just once in 13 games.

The run prompted the club to splash a club-record fee of around £57m on Aubameyang from German Bundesliga side Borussia Dortmund during January’s transfer window.

Since the signing, the two players have struck an admirable understanding on and off the pitch.

Lacazette and Aubameyang have eight goals between them since the start of the season.
