Alexandre Lacazette says that because the league title is well beyond Arsenal’s reach, he’d like to win the Europa League as he seeks to mark his first season in England with a trophy.
The Gunners last European trophy came in 1994, that 1-0 win over Parma in the Cup Winners Cup final, and it’s part of our cabinet that could definitely use some improvement.
The French international has declared himself relatively pleased with how his first campaign has gone so far, but is looking to do more in 2018.
“I would like to win a title, even though, in August, I already won the Community Shield,” he told the official site.
“I would like to win a cup, the championship will be hard, but I’d like to win the Europa League.”
As for how things have gone so far, he continued, “It’s good because I was able to score goals for the team. I feel good in the game.
“I like it in England so that’s not bad. I know I can do better but I don’t want to move too fast. It’s a year of adjustment. I’m happy.”
The club record signing has yet to make an appearance in the Europa League this season due to the manager’s rotation policy, but as the quality of the opposition improves in the knock-out stages that’s bound to change.
