French star Alexandre Lacazette has been compared to a former Arsenal striker Ian Wright.
The former Lyon star had incredible scoring stats in the Ligue 1 but he remains underrated. The Emirates Stadium move is one that would help him establish international credence while helping the club with the much needed goals to excel in its title chase.
Arsenal paid a record £52 million for his services and he is expected to impress. Ian Wright was also a high scoring player during his days. Wright scored 185 goals, siting in second place in the club’s goalscoring chart behind Thierry Henry.
“I know about Ian Wright very well. 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.
“I have arrived at a very special club, a very good club who are very organized. With the other players in the team, there are very high levels so it is a great opportunity for me to improve,” the player said.
