Blow for Manchester United: Arsenal star to convince Antoine Griezmann to join London club
Alexandre Lacazette is already deemed a fans favourite among the Arsenal supporters, but he’ll be on another level if he can pull off what he is claiming he will try in an interview with Match of the Day magazine.
International teammate Antoine Griezmann has been heavily linked with a move to Manchester United, with Paul Pogba doing his utmost to convince the French forward to join Old Trafford. Now, Agent P faces stiff competition from France counterpart Lacazette.
Or should we call him Agent AL?
Speaking about his relationship with the 26-year-old, Lacazette said: “Yeah [Greizmann is my best mate], we are very good friends and have lots of fun.
“Our nicknames for each other are Griezzy and Lacaz. If Griezzy visits me in London, I’m going to ask him to sign for Arsenal!”
United fans will urge Pogba to address this promptly.
Griezmann is likely to leave Atletico Madrid over the next year, and there will be no shortage of interest from Premier League clubs.
