Arsenal Fans Refuse To Accept Club's Ignorance Surrounding Alexandre Lacazette
Arsenal’s social media team has come under fire from the club’s own fans after appearing to ignore former record signing Alexandre Lacazette in a Tweet supposedly celebrating the new strikeforce.
The January transfer window saw star man at the Emirates Stadium, Alexis Sanchez, depart for Manchester United in a straight swap for Henrikh Mkhitaryan, while Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang signed from Borussia Dortmund in a £60million deal, eclipsing the £50million paid to Lyon for Lacazette in the summer.
Unlike Sanchez, Mesut Özil penned a new contract, with both their original deals running out in the summer, and the newly-formed trio all started in Saturday evening’s 5-1 rout of Everton.
But the fans were quick to realise someone was missing and were not in the mood to allow the club to forget about Lacazette, who only made the bench.

Questions have been put to Arsene Wenger about the possibility of all four playing together, and while he says it is possible, he has evidently not yet figured out how.
