Alexandre Lacazette still has not completed his mission at Arsenal during the international break.
Following Wednesday’s training session at London Colney, the Frenchman took to social media and revealed that he is owed money by no less than four of his first-team teammates.
There’s no indication as to what this is in reference to, but it made for hilarious viewing on Lacazette‘s Instagram stories.
The players in question are Pablo Mari, Reiss Nelson, Bukayo Saka and Eddie Nketiah – although the latter is currently away on England Under-21 duty, so Lacazette may have to wait a few more days to receive his payment.
But it would appear that Lacazette is still owed money by Mari and Nelson.
However, after spotting the cameras, Lacazette lets Mari and Nelson walk ahead of him as he had a simple six-word message for his teammates.
“Pablo and Reiss owe me money,” he said at around the 0.26-minute mark before sprinting off to catch up with the pair.
It remains to be seen if, or when, Mari and Nelson decide to pay up, but it would appear that Lacazette won’t be letting this matter drop any time soon.
Lacazette was not selected by France for this month’s international break, meaning he has been training all week ahead of next Saturday’s Premier League clash at home to Liverpool.
And he should go into that game full of confidence.

Last weekend when he played a key role in helping the Gunners mount a stunning comeback from 3-0 down to earn a point in the London derby against West Ham United.
The Frenchman got Arsenal back into the game towards the end of the first half with a deflected effort – now being credited as a Tomas Soucek own goal – and made it 3-3 with a header after 82 minutes.
Furthermore, Lacazette also netted in the 2-1 north London derby win over Tottenham which means he will be looking to score for the third successive Premier League game if selected against last season’s champions.
