Arsenal Fan Loses Bet and Gets Tattoo of Darren Bent-Looking Alexandre Lacazette

Wednesday July 19th, 2017

​An Arsenal fan has been left ruing his pessimistic ways after making a bet to get a tattoo of Alexandre Lacazette somewhere on his body - and if that wasn't bad enough, he believes the end product looks more like former Spurs striker Darren Bent.

The tweet gained a lot of publicity after ​a retweet from Arsenal's official Twitter account.

Twitter user @sxmleach clearly did not hold much faith in his club getting a deal for the former Lyon striker over the line, but stuck to his word after the Frenchman joined the Gunners for a club-record fee.

A lot of Twitter users were quick to point out that the tattoo bore similarities to ex-Spurs striker Darren Bent - who was once Tottenham's record signing at £16m.

Yet another case of a man making an ill-judged bet on social media and going viral for all the wrong reasons. When will people learn?!
