Steven Gerrard believes that Alexandre Lacazette will be a great signing for Arsenal after the striker opened his Premier League account last week.

The 26-year-old netted his first goal for the north London side in the Premier League when he headed home the opener in Arsenal’s thrilling 4-3 win over Leicester City at The Emirates.

Lacazette joined the north London side from Lyon back in July in a club-record transfer deal and looked a threat all evening against the Foxes.

And former Liverpool captain Gerrard is convinced that Lacazette will end up being a great signing for Arsene Wenger’s side.

Speaking on Premier League Tonight on BT Sport on Saturday night, Gerrard said: “It was good to see Lacazette firing from the off.

“He looked really good in the Community Shield last week and I think he’ll be a great signing.”

Lacazette will be hoping to feature for Arsenal as the Gunners take on Stoke City in their first Premier League away game of the season next Saturday evening.

Arsenal are looking to significantly improve their Premier League form this season after they ended up in fifth place in the table last term and missed out on Champions League qualification.

The north London side have brought in Lacazette and Sead Kolasinac in the summer transfer window so far.
