Arsenal boss Arteta: Lacazette remains important for me

Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta insists he values Alexander Lacazette as his contract runs down.

Lacazette stayed at Arsenal this summer and came off the bench to score a last-gasp equaliser in Monday's 2-2 draw with Crystal Palace, his third goal from five games this season.

"To keep doing what he's doing, he had a good impact as well against Brighton," said Arteta. " Since I've been here he's played a lot and been important and he will continue to be important.

"I had no doubts about that (his motivation) and if I did I would probably have decided to do something different in the summer if the motivation was just his financial future.

"It's not the case with Laca."
