Thierry Henry is excited about Arsenal’s attacking options following the arrival of Alexandre Lacazette.
Henry also revealed Lacazette will combine well with Olivier Giroud and Alexis Sanchez in a deadly attacking force for Arsenal this season.
He told Sky Sports: “[Lacazette] has a different game to Giroud, which I think is good because you need different types of strikers.
“It’s ironic when you think about it that Giroud starts for France and Lacazette is his sub, and it looks at club level like Giroud will be the sub. I don’t know if that’s ever happened in the history of the game!
“He did it in the French league and people might say it’s a different league but, with due respect to Lyon, he’ll also be with better players. I’m backing him to have a good season.
“But that rotation will be key. Sometimes you’ll need Giroud or even [Alexis] Sanchez in the middle and sometimes you’ll need [Danny] Welbeck or [Theo] Walcott, whoever will have an impact.
“You’re waiting on Lacazette to have an impact with the fee, I know you shouldn’t mention that, but that’s how it is nowadays.
“I’m a big fan of him. I saw him playing for a long time in the French league and in the youth team. He was always a talent that everyone was waiting for him to grow into, and to be fair he did, he’s been scoring goals every season.”
