An Arsenal fan with an Alexandre Lacazette tattoo on his bum finally got to meet his hero after months of waiting, it has emerged.
Sam Leach tweeted in July that he’d get inked in tribute to the striker should he sign for his beloved Gunners, which of course he did.
if Arsenal sign Lacazette i'll get a tattoo of his face somewhere on me body 🤙🏼

Word filtered through to Lacazette himself, who immediately made it known he’d like to meet the fan in question.

It has taken time to materialise, with Leach perhaps left wondering if it would ever happen at all.

At long last the meeting took place yesterday, on the day that Lacazette scored twice in Arsenal’s 4-1 win over West Ham.
