French forward Alexandre Lacazette has spoken about his decision to snubbed French giants, Paris Saint-Germain for a move to the Premier League to join Arsenal.

Lacazette became Arsenal's most expensive signing in a deal with Lyon reportedly worth £52.7million in July.

The 26-year-old France international, who has scored four goals in seven Premier League appearances, said he could have remained in his native country with PSG.

"We talked to PSG but I knew it was not where I wanted to go. In France, I would only play for Lyon," Lacazette told RMC Sport.

"PSG could have helped me progress because of the big players they have but I wanted to play in another league."

While it might be too early to be assertive on whether Lacazette made the right move to join Arsenal, the French star is high on optimism that the Gunners will get it right this season.

"I believe in the title, whether in the Premier League or in the Europa League," Lacazette added.

"We have a big group, everyone gets along, it's not always the best that wins”

Arsenal are presently fifth in the Premier League, six points adrift of leaders Manchester City.

Arsene Wenger’s men are not doing badly in the Europa League where they have won their opening two fixtures.
