Alexandre Lacazette has recently bee discussing his desire to lift a trophy with Arsenal

Lacazette’s frustrations

The Frenchman joined the Gunners in the summer of 2017 from French outfit, Lyon.

Arsenal are understood to have paid somewhere in the region of £47m for the hitman.

And whilst Lacazette has had a few shaky spells at the Emirates, Lacazette has still proven a useful asset for the north Londoners.

All told, Lacazette has scored 48 and assisted 25 during his stint in the English capital.

However, Lacazette has never been able to garner any major silverware whilst on Arsenal’s books.

Yes, Arsenal did win the Community Shield during Lacazette’s first summer at the club.

But said trophy isn’t exactly anything to brag about and Lacazette himself clear isn’t too impressed with it either as he has recently opened up on his trophy frustrations:

“I came to Arsenal to win trophies. Yes, it’s been really frustrating, but this is part of football. Nothing is ever easy and this is why I love this sport because you can learn from this and become a great man with these kinds of experiences.”

Lacazette continued:

“But obviously at the end you are a bit disappointed. So you just go forward to the next season to change this and to reach your targets. So obviously this time it’s a really big game for me and for Arsenal.

“We know Arsenal is the team that has won this cup the most, so even if the fans are not in the stadium we know they will be following us all over the world.

“European football is really important. It’s going to bring money to the club for the future. Players who have a lot of ambitions want to play in Europe and I think it will be easier to sign new players and to keep all the players in the group with the Europa League.”

Arsenal vs Chelsea

Lacazette, of course, has the perfect chance to end that trophy drought on Saturday evening.

After Mikel Arteta and co. somewhat surprisingly knocked Manchester City out of the FA Cup in the semi-final stages, they will now face Chelsea on Saturday in the competition’s showpiece.

The tie is huge for both sides as it will see one of Arteta or Lampard earn their first piece of silverware as a manager.

But with Arsenal finishing in a dismal 8th place in the Premier League this year, the final also represents a chance for them to secure European football for the forthcoming campaign.
