Alexandre Lacazette’s acquisition by Arsenal was hailed heavily. He is believed to be very fitting with how to play the Gunners and promise many goals.
Lacazette officially became an Arsenal player in the transfer market this summer. To get it, Arsenal reportedly have to spend money of 60 million euros and broke the club record.
But this purchase is believed to be in vain for Arsenal. French manager Gerard Houllier believes the 26-year-old will clip with the games of northern London children and score many goals.
Last season Lacazette made 37 goals in 45 appearances throughout the event. His 28th goal in the French league last season put him in the top two of the top scorer list, only to lose to Edinson Cavani.
“He’s more like Alexis Sanchez than Olivier Giroud, Ian Wright is a great comparison, he’s very active, good in the cramped space, has good technique, and he scores goals,” Houllier said of Lacazette’s style to talksport.
“He is the top scorer in France in 2014/2015, the best player in the league in 2015, and has been France’s best goalscorer for the past three seasons.”
“He made more than 25 goals per season – one thing he will bring to Arsenal is clear goals, scoring that goal is his main asset he can attack can also survive quickly.
“I’m not surprised Arsene Wenger is very quick to like him, he will fit in with their game, he will fit their bait game, how they build his attack, their approach he is very good near the penalty box,” he said quoted livescore123.
