Arsenal’s new record signing Alexandre Lacazette is targeting titles after securing his “dream” move to the Gunners.
Arsenal signed Lacazette on a five-year deal from Lyon on Wednesday for club-record fee which could rise to £52m over the course of his contract at the Emirates.
Lacazette becomes the latest Frenchman to lead the line for the Gunners, following in the footsteps of Nicolas Anelka, Sylvain Wiltord, Olivier Giroud and club legend Thierry Henry.
The 26-year-old is delighted to have finally secured his “dream” move to north London and is determined to win titles in his debut season in English football.
“I want to give one hundred per cent in every match,” Lacazette told the club’s official website. “I want to show I’m worthy of the shirt. I want to do everything I can to make sure we win titles.”
“I am, of course, delighted and very proud too because Arsenal is a legendary club,” Lacazette added.
“Throughout my childhood, thanks to Thierry Henry and other French players, I always dreamed of playing for this club so today that dream has been fulfilled.”
Arsene Wenger believes Lacazette can help the Gunners challenge for the Premier League, and the France international is relishing the chance to work under the long-time Arsenal manager.
“In addition there are quite a few French players here, which makes it easier to settle in. In my opinion, Arsenal is also the club that plays the best football in England so I really wanted to come here.”
Lacazette scored 37 goals in all competitions in his final season at Lyon and Wenger is hoping his new signing will prove to be just as prolific in England, as Arsenal chase their first Premier League title since 2004.
“We are very happy to have Alexandre join our group,” Wenger said.
“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.
“So 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 will meet up with his new team-mates in the coming days as they continue their pre-season preparations ahead of the upcoming tour of Australia, where they will play their first two warm-up games against Sydney and Western Sydney Warriors.
The Gunners will then head to China for pre-season friendlies against Bayern Munich and Chelsea before returning to London for the Emirates Cup.Soccer Accumulator Bonus
