Alexandre Lacazette has been scoring goals for fun in Ligue 1, but now he has been given the chance by Arsenal to prove himself in the much tougher Premier League, and having been compared in style to the great Ian Wright, he hopes that he can emulate the career of our very own Wrighty.
Lacazette told Arsenal.com: “I know about Ian Wright very well,” he said. “I’ve never seen him play but if I am compared to him that is great.
“If I have a career where fans think of me like they do about Ian Wright then I’ll be very happy.”
The Frenchman is obviously very impressed with the club and his team-mates, and he is hoping that with all these quality players alongside him, he can improve even further. “I have arrived at a very special club, a very good club who are very organised,” added Lacazette.
“With the other players in the team, there are very high levels so it is a great opportunity for me to improve.”
Having scored 37 goals in all competitions last season, i just hope he can do the same in his very first season, especially if Ozil and Alexis are slipping through balls to him in every game. For me he doesn’t need to improve, he just needs to carry on doing what he does best. Hitting the back of the net!
