Arsenal forward, Alexandre Lacazette says he rejected the chance to play for Paris Saint-Germain, so he could join Arsenal.
The France international striker became Arsenal’s most expensive signing, joining from Lyon in July for a reported fee of £52.7 million.
Lacazette who has netted four goals in seven Premier League appearances, says he could have stayed in France and played for PSG.
“We talked to PSG but I knew it was not where I wanted to go. In France, I would only play for Lyon,” Lacazette told RMC Sport.
“PSG could have helped me progress because of the big players they have but I wanted to play in another league.”
“I believe in the title, whether in the Premier League or in the Europa League,” Lacazette added.
“We have a big group, everyone gets along, it’s not always the best that wins.”
