Arsenal striker Lacazette names Dream XI – Real Madrid & Barcelona stars dominate

Arsenal striker Alexandre Lacazette has revealed his ultimate XI from players past and present in an interview with Goal.com.

Big-money signing

French hitman Lacazette arrived at Arsenal in a 53 million Euro (potentially rising to 60 million) move from Ligue 1 outfit Lyon in July, following lengthy discussion between the two clubs.

He has made a positive start to life in the English top-flight, having notched 4 goals in his first 8 league appearances for Arsenal.

Star-studded

The 26-year-old took part in an interesting interview with Goal.com recently, during which he was asked to pick his Dream XI.

Legends from both Barcelona and Real Madrid dominated his side, with all of Lionel Messi, Dani Alves, Ronaldinho, Andres Iniesta and, somewhat surprisingly French international teammate Samuel Umtiti making the cut from the former.

Meanwhile, Sergio Ramos, Marcelo, Zinedine Zidane and (Brazilian) Ronaldo feature from Los Blancos (Ronaldo played for both Barcelona and Real Madrid, but is best known for his time spent with the latter).

Elswhere, Juventus legend Gianluigi Buffon takes his spot between the posts, while Gunners fans will be happy to see Thierry Henry included alongside Messi and Ronaldo in Lacazette’s phenomenal front-three.
