ALEXANDRE LACAZETTE is going to ask Antoine Griezmann to join him at Arsenal if he comes to visit him in London.
Lacazette and Griezmann play together for France and are good friends.
Lacazette joined Arsenal for a club-record £52million this summer, while Griezmann was linked with a move to Manchester United before Atletico Madrid’s transfer ban was upheld.
Lacazette had initially looked set to join Griezmann at Atletico, but now he’s talking about a link up in north London.
“We are very good friends and have lots of fun,” Lacazette told MOTD Mag.
“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!”
And when asked who he’d sign on FIFA, he name checked his pal again.
“I’d say Antoine Griezmann and Corentin Tolisso,” he said
“Just like in FUT, we have a good chemistry and don’t need to talk to understand each other’s movements on the pitch. I’ve known them for a long time!”
And the France star is settling in well with four goals in the Premier League so far.
And he’s starting to learn the lingo, but steering clear of the local cuisine.
“I like London, but the weather isn’t great,” he added.
“I’m having English lessons at the moment. Someone told me to avoid English food as it’s not very good for footballers. Ha-ha!”
