‘I’m the player who is hungriest to win it’

All of our players will have their eyes on this season’s Europa League final, but perhaps none more so than Alexandre Lacazette.

The France striker knows the competition well, having scored in every round en route to last season’s semi-final with Lyon, and has targeted lifting the trophy in his hometown for Arsenal.

“This year I want to go further and reach the final, which is in Lyon,” Lacazette told Arsenal Player. “I hope we can lift the trophy this season.
 
“I’m the player who is the hungriest to win it, because playing in the final in front of my friends and family would be great. Having said that, we can't think too far ahead. We should think about our match this week and take it game by game.

“It’s a good test because it's a European competition, although we do want to play in the Champions League. It's what we have to do this season. We have to win it. That's our target and it would be another trophy for the club. That would be good for this season.”
