Why Lacazette's profile has appeared on Barcelona official website
- Lacazette has been rumoured to be among Barcelona transfer targets.
- His player profile is sensationally included on the list of the FC Barcelona players on their official website.
- It has turned out anyone could load up a fake profile after a little change of the URL.
Catalan-based newspaper Mundo Deportivo reported last Sunday that Barcelona could consider signing Alexandre Lacazette this summer as a potential successor to Luis Suarez. In fact, the Frenchman is believed to be a so-called plan B, should the Catalan giants fail in their attempt to lure Antoine Griezmann to the Camp Nou.
Currently, the La Liga side believe that Arsenal's Frenchman is valued at €65-70 million. In any case the deal is far from being reached. However, some fans have noticed a staggering fact - apparently, there is ALREADY a Lacazette player profile on FC Barcelona website!
What does that mean? It seems that FC Barcelona have a number of footballers listed on their website. You only need to change the number on the end of the URL to load up a fake profile of another player. It appears some Barca fans really want the striker within their ranks. So it's just a technical glitch and fans should not be worried.
Even though the Gunners have made it clear to the Spanish heavyweights that they do not intend to sell Lacazette, the player himself describes Barcelona's alleged interest as 'flattering' in the most recent interview to the local media Telefoot.
So far this season has scored 19 goals in 48 games in all competitions. He also scored three goals over two-legged Europa League semi-finals against Valencia which saw the Gunners qualified for their first European final since 2006.
