Arsenal’s Lacazette offers signed jersey to fan who got tattoo of his face

In a feel-good story coming from social media this evening, new Arsenal striker Alexandre Lacazette has promised to pay back the fan who got a ‘questionable’ tattoo of the Frenchman last week.


The story of the now infamous Arsenal supporter has gone viral across social media over the last few days, with the overly-committed Gunners fanatic having promised to get a tattoo of Lacazette’s face on his body if the Emirates club secured his signature from Lyon.

Of course, Arsene Wenger and co. did the unexpected and brought the prolific French international to North London in a big-money transfer a couple of weeks ago, leaving the aforementioned fan with a dilemma on his hands.

Pure commitment

Clearly a man of his word, the superfan did not hesitate in following through on his promise, getting a sizable tattoo of the Gunners new signing in a hidden but rather sensitive area…

While many have pointed to the fact that the tattoo actually looks more like former English international Darren Bent, one man who is clearly a fan of the ink is Lacazette himself, who took to Twitter this afternoon to show his appreciation:
