He scored 71 goals in 206 appearances in all competitions for the Gunners.

At the time of his move to London, he had won 11 senior caps for France and has since made a further five appearances.

Lacazette scored six goals and made eight assists in 36 appearances for Arsenal during the 2021/2022 season.

They finished fifth in the Premier League, just missing out on a UEFA Champions League place.(dpa/NAN)
