Arsene Wenger hopes Alexandre Lacazette can replicate his Ligue 1 goals

Arsene Wenger is hopeful new signing Alexandre Lacazette can follow in the footsteps of Zlatan Ibrahimovic and transfer his sensational goalscoring ratio into the Premier League.

The Gunners will kick-off the new season on Friday night when they host 2015/16 champions Leicester at the Emirates Stadium, with club-record recruit Lacazette likely to lead the line.

While there remains question-marks over the Arsenal future of Alexis Sanchez, who misses the visit of the Foxes with an abdominal injury, Lacazette will be aiming to become a new fan-favourite in north London.

The 26-year-old France international boasted a goal every 86 minutes in Ligue 1 for Lyon last season and, after forking out £45million, Wenger believes Lacazette can be just as deadly on this side of the Channel.

As well as Sanchez, Wenger could be without a number of other key players for the season-opener and had fitness concerns over Mesut Ozil, Aaron Ramsey, Shkodran Mustafi and Per Mertesacker.
