Aaron Ramsey believes there’ll be many more goals to come from Alexandre Lacazette this season, after seeing the club-record signing on the scoresheet four times already.
Lacazette has been at Arsenal for more than three months now and appears to have settled into life in England very well. Ramsey has been very impressed with the start Lacazette has made to his Arsenal career and believes there’ll be much more to come from him.
“I think he’s made a great start,” Ramsey said, reports the Evening Standard. “He’s very technically good, he’s very clean with his touches and his link up play and he’s a great finisher.
“We’ve seen some fantastic finishes so far from him and I’m sure there will be many, many more to come as well, so it’s exciting times for him personally and for us to have him here.
“I think his understanding is pretty good so far. He likes to come a bit deeper sometimes and try to link up the play and feed players in. He makes those darting runs in behind as well, so he’s very good to play with and hopefully we can link up well throughout the season.
“He likes to have a bit of banter as well off the pitch, so he’s settled in very well.” Four goals in seven Premier League games is a good return from Lacazette, and a total he’ll look to increase when Arsenal travel to Watford after the international break.
I feel he’s integrated well into the Arsenal team, and has shown promising signs that can link-up well with his teammates. There’s a lot of pressure on Lacazette to score goals for Arsenal, especially given the strength of the competition.
Sergio Aguero, Harry Kane, and Romelu Lukaku are considered the best three strikers in the league and top the scoring charts. It’d be quite an achievement if Lacazette can keep up with them in his first season in English football, but that’s the expectation.
Both Ramsey and Lacazette are currently away on international duty. Lacazette’s France side have games against Bulgaria and Belarus as they look to consolidate top spot in their group. Ramsey’s Wales outfit, meanwhile, play Georgia and the Republic of Ireland and could earn a play-off spot.
