Bizarre Glitch Sees Arsenal Frontman Appear On Barcelona's Website As THEIR Player

Share this on

Arsenal striker Alexandre Lacazette was linked to Barcelona last week, and while the Frenchman has had a great season at the Emirates Stadium this year, the reason was quite strange. His name appeared on the club’s website in a way that made it look like he was one of their own players. But it was said to be a technical issue on the end of the Spanish club.

Funnily enough, though, Lacazette’s international teammate and close friend Antoine Griezmann looks set to move to Camp Nou in the summer. The Atletico Madrid striker has told his club he will leave this summer and the Catalans have reportedly said they’d be willing to pay his £108million buyout clause in his contract at Wanda Metropolitano, as they replace Luis Suarez in the years to come.

Lacazette is a quality player, and the Blaugrana could do much worse than to move for him, but thankfully for the Gunners and their fans, there is not real interest in his services.

His partnership with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, who ended up winning a share of the Golden Boot, has this season inspired Arsenal to fifth in the Premier League and a Europa League final against Chelsea.

If they win that, they will qualify for the Champions League, which will allow Unai Emery to continue his rebuild of the club. While Lacazette may not be heading out of the Emirates this summer, there will be a lot of players signing and being sold by the club, including Aaron Ramsey, who will be joining Juventus on a free transfer.

As for Barcelona, as well as Griezmann, they have been linked with a number of other players, having already agreed a deal to sign Ajax’s Frenkie De Jong. But they could be set to sell former Liverpool man Philippe Coutinho after a disappointing 18 months at the club, with a host of clubs, including the Reds, will surely be interested.
