Robert Pires believes Alexandre Lacazette has the qualities to help Arsenal lift the Premier League title.
The Frenchman joined Arsenal from Lyon for a club record £52m fee in the summer and has done so well since his arrival.
Lacazette already has five goals to his name and Pires is one of those who believes the striker will continue to improve.
“Lacazette is a like a warrior, he loves to fight, he loves to run, he has a very good spirit,” Pires said, as reported by the Daily Star .
“He can learn quickly because he works every day with great players, so that’s why he’s very important and I’m sure Lacazette can help Arsenal to win something at the end of the season.”
Much is expected from Lacazette, it’s been a long time – in-short since the days of Robin Van Persie that we had so much expectation of our striker.
Pires also believes the amount of French player at the club has aided Lacazette’s adaptation.
“If you want to click you need a very good feeling. For example for me it was easy to play with Thierry Henry, Patrick Vieira or Sylvain Wiltord, it was the French connection.
“It’s the same for Lacazette because on the team they have a lot of French players like (Olivier) Giroud, Laurent Koscielny, Francis Coquelin, these guys can help Lacazette reach a high level.
“Of course, I think the most important for the players is the manager. Everybody knows Arsene Wenger is French, so that’s why Lacazette can have a very good feeling.”
Lacazette has the potential to develop into one of the best strikers in the world and all he just needs to do is continue to work hard.
Should he happen to lead us to the league title, he’ll immediately become a cult hero and me mentioned as one of the club’s great.
