Lacazette: I Will Not Score The Goals I Scored In Lyon
Alexandre Lacazette has come to the terms that he will not be able to transform his goalscoring form from Lyon to Arsenal.
The France internatinternational striker is the record signing at Arsenal, joining for £52.7 million from Olympique Lyon.
Lacazette scored 37 goals in his final season with Lyon, but believes the squad rotation at Arsenal will not afford him to be that prolific in front of goal.
“I will try my level best to achieve that but there is a big difference in that I was played in virtually every match at Lyon,” he said. “Here the manager likes to rotate players to keep them fresh for the Premier League.
“I will try my best to score that many goals but this is my first season so it’s all quite new.
“I want to settle in and repay the confidence that’s been shown in me.”
“The main difference in the Premier League is that game is a lot more physical. The pace of the game is also very different – I now really understand what it means to play box to box.
“Things can move so fast that you don’t have time to catch your breath or think about the next move.”
