Hector Bellerin believes Alexandre Lacazette is bringing out the best in his Arsenal team-mates.

The France international moved to Arsenal in a club-record £52m deal from Ligue 1 side Lyon back in July to improve Arsene Wenger’s attacking options.

Lacazette arrived at the north London club with an impressive record after scoring 100 times in 202 appearances in the French league during his seven-season Lyon career.

The 26-year-old wasted no time having a positive impact on the Arsenal team after Lacazette scored inside two minutes of his debut in a 4-3 victory over Leicester City.

Lacazette was named on the bench for Arsenal’s 4-0 loss to Liverpool at Anfield much to the surprise of most Gunners supporters given his promising start.

And the France international made his mark with his second Premier League goal in a 3-0 victory over Bournemouth at the Emirates Stadium on Saturday afternoon.

Bellerin hailed Lacazette as a dangerous player and admitted the Arsenal striker has improved the players around him.

“Lacazette has already proved that he can makes the difference,” Bellerin told the International Business Times.

“He showed it in the preseason and he prove it again against Bournemouth. He has shown that he is a very dangerous player and he makes those around him better.”

Arsenal finished in fifth place in the Premier League table last season to miss out on a Champions League place.

The Gunners have won two of their opening four victories to leave the north London side in mid table.
