Alexandre Lacazette was heralded as the saviour of Arsenal when he was brought into the club from Lyon during the summer. Tottenham fans have been discussing a "powershift" in the north of the London following last season's league standings.

Robinho had previously been accused of sexual assault while at City in 2009 but was later cleared. He however has the right of appeal and until the process is followed, the sentence can not take effect.

According to local legislation no Brazilian citizen can be extradited to another country under request to face criminal charges, although that will not apply should he leave his home nation and is detained elsewhere.

"All legal steps are already being taken regarding this decision in the first instance".

That sparkling form led him to Real Madrid, where he starred for three seasons before earning a lucrative move to Manchester City in 2008.
