Arsenal’s striker, Alexandre Lacazette has been linked with a move to the Camp Nou this summer as seen on Barcelona’s website.
Although there was no picture on the tab, it does have a number of details about the striker.
It states his date of birth, weight, height and club debut.
Of course, Lacazette hasn’t actually signed or played for Barcelona, but it says he first featured for them on November 2, 2010 which is inaccurate.
But while Atletico Madrid’s Griezmann has declared he is on the move, Lacazette’s dalliance with Barcelona owed to nothing more than an internet glitch.
Twitter erupted at the sight of the 27-year-old’s name appearing among the player profiles available on Barcelona’s official website.
To some fans, this was akin to images of your star striker posing in the strip of an interested party long before his move has been made official. Lacazette to Barcelona was on – how would Arsenal fill a 13-league goal hole in their front line?
Suddenly, though, confusion reigned when it was pointed out that Cardiff City defender Sol Bamba was also listed. Perhaps Gerard Pique was set to have a new central defensive partner?
But when profiles were also found for former Arsenal stalwarts David Seaman, now aged 55, and Steve Bould, 56, the game was up.
Speaking to Telefoot earlier this week, Lacazette was asked about the stories linking him with Barcelona. He responded: “It is flattering.”
Express Sport understand that Barca are eyeing a £70million move for the Arsenal forward.
Those plans could potentially be effected by the situation with Antoine Griezmann.
Last night the forward addressed Atletico Madrid fans in an emotional video, telling them that he intends to leave the Wanda Metropolitano this summer.
