Wenger confirms where new signing will actually be playing
Arsene Wenger has confirmed which position new signing Alexandre Lacazette will be playing in next season.
The 26-year-old completed his move to the Emirates stadium last Wednesday, making him the most expensive player in the club’s history.
Lacazette featured in the centre-forward position during his debut against Sydney FC which saw him score his first goal in Arsenal colours.
However, the France international had to accommodate with Olivier Giroud in the starting line-up on Saturday.
That has created some confusion over where Lacazette will feature in the Gunners’ attack, but Wenger has confirmed he will often play upfront.
“Lacazette will play most of the time as centre forward.” he said
“He can play in any system because he’s a provider as well, he can combine and play in a 442.
“At the moment he plays a little bit behind Giroud, tonight he was more on the left, and he can play in that position as well.”
