Arsenal won the race to sign Alexandre Lacazette by breaking the bank to secure the French International’s signature. This transfer makes Lacazette the most expensive signing in the North London club’s history and it has left other teams a little worried because they are well aware of the ex- Lyon player’s thriving technical ability and deadly finishing in front of goal.
Given the rivalry between Arsenal and Spurs, it’s almost as if finishing above Spurs is bare minimum expectation from Arsenal fans, and after the Gunners finished below Tottenham this season, the bragging rights belong to Spurs.
Although the signing of Lacazette is a threatening indication for the white side of London, the Spurs supporters have just found out a new way to ridicule Arsenal’s new boy.
The fans have been sharing an old clip of Spurs’ former left back Benoit Assou-Ekotto (BAE) brutally bamboozling Lacazette along the sidelines in an old Europa League match between Lyon and Tottenham.
The video shows Assou-Ekotto unleashing a brutal nutmeg, beating the French forward all ends up and exiting the crime scene as if nothing happened.
