Wenger sets date for Lacazette's debut

Alexandre Lacazette at London Colney

Arsene Wenger has wasted no time in strengthening our squad this summer - and we’ll get a first look at the new boys this week.

Alexandre Lacazette and Sead Kolasinac are both part of our travelling party in Sydney and the France striker has been earmarked for a debut against Sydney FC on Thursday.

“Lacazette will make his debut here, yes,” said Arsene Wenger after arriving in Sydney. “On Thursday night he will certainly play a part in the game and in the other game as well. In the two games he will take part.

“We play football based on movement, technical qualities and mobility, and I believe that both of the new signings can integrate well into the team. 

“One is a defender who can play on the flank and centrally, and one is a striker with a very good goalscoring record, so I believe that they are great additions to the team. It’s a good opportunity as well to have a first look at how well and how quickly they will integrate with the way we want to play.”
