Alexandre Lacazette urged to follow Zlatan Ibrahimovic's example.

Arsene Wenger wants new signing Alexandre Lacazette to follow Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s lead.

Wenger broke the Gunners' transfer record this summer to sign Lacazette from Lyon - where he scored a total of 119 goals in 249 appearances for the Ligue 1 club.

However, speaking ahead of Friday night’s season-opener against Leicester at the Emirates, Wenger is hoping the 26-year-old can continue his goal scoring form in England.

He said as the Mirror reported: “With Lacazette, it’s simple. He is an intelligent player. We have a game backed on mobility and technique and I think he can integrate that well.

“After that, we get the efficiency. His record in France is to score one in 80 minutes. If he can maintain that record that would be ideal for us. As a game is in 90 that would guarantee you a goal.

“Goal-scoring record is not necessarily transferable from the French League to the English league, that’s for sure.

“But you could say that Ibrahimovic transferred an identical amount of goals from France to England. So that’s the target Lacazette should set.”
