Chelsea player reveals José Mourinho tried to sign him for Manchester United

Ahead of Arsenal's season opener against Leicester, which is live on Friday Night Football on Sky Sports Premier League, Wenger wants Lacazette to prove he can be a success in England's top flight.

ARSENAL manager Arsene Wenger said one of the "great days of recent weeks" was when striker Olivier Giroud passed up on the chance to leave the club.

'We have not made a bid for him but personally I like the player, ' the Gunners manager said of the 2015/16 PFA Player of the Year. He's a fantastic player, but as well he has a big weight in this squad. "We love him and in the end he chose to stay".

Giroud then sent the previously despondent Arsenal fans wild when he headed the 85th minute victor from a corner, Leicester keeper Kasper Schmeichel only managing to turn the ball onto the underside of the bar before it bounced over the line.

To do that, Wenger will need to get his team well prepared and ready for anything that Leicester might throw at them, something the Arsenal manager has not always been able to do at the start of the season.

Alexis is ruled out of the opening two Premier League matches, which has only moved to fuel the speculation surrounding his future, but Arsene Wenger remains adamant that he is staying put, and has now claimed that Paris Saint-Germain are not even looking at him. When you also have the players he has, that makes it a massive challenge for us. "He's an intelligent player".

Amid the joy - and relief - of victory, there was nonetheless plenty to concern Wenger, not least the manner in which his side conceded all three goals.

The visitors hit back in the fifth minute when Maguire knocked the ball back into the box, wher Shinji Okazaki was on hand to fire past Cech.

England striker Jamie Vardy, who was heavily linked with Arsenal 12 months ago, scored a brace either side of a Danny Welbeck leveller that showed Arsenal's rearguard to be equally awful from open play and set-piece situations.

Lacazette almost had his second of the night just minutes later, but Leicester keeper Kasper Schmeichel turned the shot aside, but Giroud beat the Dane with an exquisite header on the ensuing corner to give Arsenal the 4-3 victory.

"We were punished on every single mistake by a Leicester team that was very efficient going forward. One was a corner, one on build-up, one on a corner again", he said.
