Arsenal completed the unlikely signing of Alexandre Lacazette from Lyon for a club record £52.6 million. They certainly smashed their transfer record, which stood at £42.5 million when they signed Mesut Ozil from Real Madrid, and seem to have sent a statement of intent as they look to win the Premier League title.
What is a little strange is that Lacazette was expected to join Atletico Madrid and couldn’t make the trip as the Spanish side have to deal with a transfer ban. Since he had already declared his desire to leave, he had very few options and Arsenal came out to save the day.
The 26-year-old does have a great record of scoring goals for Lyon and Arsenal fans might be rejoicing their latest capture but there were a number of Tottenham fans who came out in force to share their views on this acquisition. And here are some of the best reactions from Twitter for you to feast on!
Squatters saying lacazette is out of our league are completely right. We’re champions league and they’re europa #COYS

If Lacazette is good, why doesn’t he feature for France more often?

£75m for Lukaku & £52m for Lacazette is madness. We got Harry Kane for nothing #COYS

Janseen will get a better goal/game ratio than lacazette, remember this tweet #COYS

You’re foolish if you think Lacazette isn’t a good signing.
You’re also foolish if you think he’d get start in an XI over Harry Kane #COYS

We have been the far better side since Mauricio Pochettino took over and have the bragging rights since we finished above the Gunners last season. Wenger’s side also missed out on the Champions League, while we are into the group stages already.
