Aaron Ramsey has hailed the ‘great start’ to Alexandre Lacazette’s Arsenal career, and can’t wait to see how he builds on that alongside him.
The French striker moved to North London this summer in a club record £52.7 Million deal, and his the ground running with four goals in his opening seven outings, but those numbers will be boosted by the fact he has completed the full 90 minutes on only one occasion.
Arsene Wenger has used him sparingly while he settles inside his new team and in a new league, and he has already impressed his team-mates in his two months with the club, as Aaron Ramsey confirms.
“I think he’s made a great start,” the 26 year-old stated.
“He’s very technically good, he’s very clean with his touches and his link up play and he’s a great finisher.
“We’ve seen some fantastic finishes so far from him and I’m sure there will be many, many more to come as well, so it’s exciting times for him personally and for us to have him here.
“I think his understanding is pretty good so far. He likes to come a bit deeper sometimes and try to link up the play and feed players in.
“He makes those darting runs in behind as well, so he’s very good to play with and hopefully we can link up well throughout the season.
“He likes to have a bit of banter as well off the pitch, so he’s settled in very well.”
With Lacazette settling so quickly with his team-mates, we should be able to expect his best to come in the near future, and we have already seen glimpses of just how good he could be.
Do we expect him to become a regular challenger for the Premier League Golden Boot? Will Wenger give him enough match-minutes to do so this term?
