Why Arsenal Smashed Transfer Record for Lacazette – Wenger Opens Up
Arsenal manager, Arsene Wenger, has revealed exactly what he saw in Alexandre Lacazette, which made him sanction a club record deal for the player.
Arsene Wenger believess that Alexandre Lacazette “is a great addition” for Arsenal.
The 26-year-old who signed for the Gunners from Lyon on a five-year contract with a bumper £200,000-per-week deal, will be the top earner at the Emirates.
The striker who on Wednesday finally sealed his £46.4million exit from Lyon, discussed his desire to follow in the footsteps of French Arsenal legends such as Thierry Henry and Patrick Vieira.
While speaking on the club’s latest acquisition, the Gunners boss, Wenger is in no doubt of what Lacazette can add to the squad.
“We are very happy to have Alexandre join our group. He has shown over a number of years that he can score goals and that he is a very efficient finisher. As well, he has very interesting technical qualities and a strong character,” Wenger said on the club’s official website.
“He is a guy who is a great addition for us, and someone who will help us challenge at the top level this season.”
Lacazette is expected to be part of the squad which heads to Australia and then China on tour this weekend, with a home debut likely in the Emirates Cup at the end of July.
The arrival of Lacazette may have bolstered the Gunners attack, but it also casts doubt over the future of fellow France international, Olivier Giroud, who has been linked with a £20million move to both Everton and West Ham.
Arsenal also are looking to tie down key men Sanchez, linked with Manchester City, Chelsea and Bayern Munich, as well as Ozil, both of whom have just one year left on their current deals.
