“Throughout my childhood, thanks to Thierry Henry and other French players, I always dreamed of playing for this club so today that dream has been fulfilled.”
“The fact that the manager has been here for a while shows that it is a stable club which I like,” he said.
“In addition there are quite a few French players here, which makes it easier to settle in. In my opinion, Arsenal is also the club that plays the best football in England so I really wanted to come here.”
Lacazette scored 37 goals in all competitions in his final season at Lyon and Wenger is hoping his new signing will prove to be just as prolific in England, as Arsenal chase their first Premier League title since 2004.
“We are very happy to have Alexandre join our group,” Wenger said.
“He has shown over a number of years that he can score goals and that he is a very efficient finisher. As well, he has very interesting technical qualities and a strong character.
“So he is a guy who is a great addition for us, and someone who will help us challenge at the top level this season.”
