The France worldwide joined from Lyon for a fee that could reportedly reach €60million and scored his first home goal for the Gunners during Sunday's 2-1 defeat to Sevilla in the Emirates Cup. The Gunners will face Sevilla in the final of the Emirates Cup on Sunday.

If you by the way the Arsenal transfer rumours have been progressing during the summer then it looks like our London rivals and the current Premier League title holders are set to step up their attempts to sign our England global star Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, who is one of a number of Gunners that have enetered the final year of their current Arsenal contracts.

Lacazette said: "Everything has changed". 'I felt that I was entering a new world.

It didn't take Alexandre Lacazette very long to get his first goal at the Emirates Stadium.

'That is what I was looking for.

Lacazette's goal against Sevilla was hardly one of his most spectacular as he finished from six yards after receiving Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain's deflected cross, but Arsene Wenger says the strike showed a glimpse of why he paid £52million to sign him. Everything is different. It's bigger, goes faster, stronger - it's good. In my opinion, there is no small team.

It was the second time in pre-season Lacazette has scored and Wenger is happy to see the Frenchman starting to find the back of the net so soon after his switch from Lyon.

"But overall I think it will take him one or two months".

Wenger is excited to see what Lacazette can do next season and believes he'll definitely score goals for Arsenal.

"Week after week, Lacazette looks to adapt quickly".
