Thierry Henry Backs New Signing Lacazette To Succeed At Arsenal

Arsenal legend Thierry Henry, has said that record signing Alexandre Lacazette will succeed at Arsenal.

Lacazette joined the Gunners from Olympique Lyon this season and considering his start in Sunday’s Community Shield victory over Chelsea, is set to be Arsene Wenger’s first choice up front.

Henry, who is the Arsenal’s all-time top goal scorer with 228 goals, believes Lacazette and Olivier Giroud will offer versatility for the current squad’s benefit.

“(Lacazette) has a different game to Giroud, which I think is good because you need different types of strikers,” Henry said on Sky Sports.

“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.

“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.”

Lacazette scored 39 times in all competitions for Lyon last season and Henry reveals he has known the 26-year-old for a long time.

“I’m a big fan of him,” Henry said.

“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 for him to grow into, and to be fair he did, he’s been scoring goals every season.”
