Alexandre Lacazette is honoured to be compared to one of our greatest ever strikers - Ian Wright.
Wrighty scored 185 goals between 1991 and 1998 - eclipsing Cliff Bastin to become our all-time record goalscorer before Thierry Henry came along - and our new signing shares similar qualities with his pace and clinical finishing.
"I know about Ian Wright very well,” said Lacazette. "I’ve never seen him play but if I am compared to him that is great.
"If I have a career where fans think of me like they do about Ian Wright then I’ll be very happy.
"I have arrived at a very special club, a very good club who are very organised,” added Lacazette.
"With the other players in the team, there are very high levels so it is a great opportunity for me to improve."
