This is how well Alexandre Lacazette does when he’s at Arsenal on FIFA 17

Is the Frenchman worth his eye-watering £44m price tag?

Arsenal have agreed a deal with Lyon to sign France striker Alexandre Lacazette for a club record transfer fee of £44million.

With that price tag comes a lot of expectation… but can the 26-year-old deliver?

YouTuber Hayzy decided to find out using FIFA 17 Career Mode.

He simmed the season then examined Lacazette’s stats – does he justify that enormous price tag?

Well, in short… no. Hell no.

The Frenchman did not make it anywhere near the top scorers list in the season

The striker is nowhere to be seen on the top scorers list – with Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez bagging 15 and 14 respectively.

In fact, Lacazette’s stats are shocking.

He managed just two goals in 26 games – both of which were scored in the Premier League.

So, there you have it… Arsenal could be making a big mistake… according to FIFA.

Although, somehow, we think he’ll fare better in real life.
