Arsenal striker Alexandre Lacazette insists that he is "happy" in North London and was not looking to join another club during the summer transfer window.

Alexandre Lacazette has rejected claims that he wanted to leave Arsenal during the summer transfer window and has vowed to fight for a starting spot.

The France international found himself relegated to the bench in the opening few weeks of the season after being usurped by January signing Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, leading to suggestions that he could move on.

Lacazette took full advantage of his first start of the season at the weekend, however, netting a late winner for the Gunners in their 3-2 win over Cardiff City.

With the transfer window now closed until the New Year, the 27-year-old has suggested that it was never his intention to quit the Emirates Stadium.

"I don't know who said this stuff, but I am at one of the best clubs in London and I am happy at Arsenal," he is quoted as saying by Sport360.

"It's always going to be hard to be in the first XI at a club like this, but I always keep fighting and working. I won't play every week just because of one game. Every day I have to work and show the coach I work well and I deserve my place."

Lacazette has now been directly involved in seven goals in his past five Premier League starts.
