With Arsenal agreeing a deal for Lyon’s Alexandre Lacazette, here is a look at how the player could contribute to Arsenal’s chances in Premier League if they sign him this summer.

The 26-year-old Lacazette made 45 appearances last season for Lyon across all competitions. The striker managed to find the back of the net 37 times, and made five assists for his teammates.

History at Lyon

The French international has spent his whole career at Lyon, and made 275 appearances, scoring 129 goals scored and creating 43 assists since his debut in the 2009/10 season.

The 2014/15 season was his first breakthrough campaign. With Lyon losing their first-choice striker, Lisandro Lopez, Lacazette took his chance and cemented his place in the starting 11.

In that season he scored 27 goals in 33 games, surpassing even Zlatan Ibrahimović at Paris Saint-Germain as the league’s top striker.

It’s also worth mentioning that the player started his career as a winger but made the transition to centre-forward and has been brilliant ever since.
