Welbeck pokes fun at Lacazette over Instagram picture

He may be leaving when his contract expires at the end of the month, but Danny Welbeck still remains amongst the most popular figures in Arsenal’s dressing room.

With the campaign now over, many of the Gunners stars are on their holiday travels, and via a picture posted on Instagram, France international Alexandre Lacazette is one of those enjoying their time away from the pitch.

The 28-year-old’s snap shows the striker sipping on a refreshing drink, with the location of the post tagged as ‘far away from you’.

The picture drew a response from many of Lacazette’s footballing friends, but it was Welbeck’s response that really caught the imagination, noting the fact that the Frenchman seems to be particularly over-awed by his drink in the snap.

The former Manchester United man has been out of action for Unai Emery’s side since before the start of the new year after suffering a serious ankle injury, and though he closed in on a return towards the end of the season, failed to make his comeback.

Lacazette’s long-term future at Arsenal is also seemingly under threat, with reports in recent weeks suggesting that Spanish giants Barcelona could be contemplating a move for the star. Whether Lacazette leaves the Emirates this summer is very much up to debate.
