Alexandre Lacazette is backing Eddie Nketiah to develop into a top player for Arsenal in the coming seasons.

The French striker is currently getting used to life at The Emirates after signing for Arsene Wenger’s side from Lyon back in July as the Gunners bolstered their attacking options.

Lacazette has made a strong start to life at Arsenal and has also been getting used to playing alongside some of the club’s younger players in training.

And the 26-year-old forward has admitted that he has been impressed by young attacker Nketiah during his first few months at the north London club.

Lacazette told Arsenal Player: “I really like Eddie.

“He’s a great striker at the academy. He is very calm in front of goal and has great technique.”

The striker will be hoping to start for Arsenal when the Gunners aim to get back to winning ways in the Premier League with a crunch clash against West Brom at The Emirates on Monday night.

Arsenal were held to a goalless draw by Chelsea at Stamford Bridge in their most recent Premier League outing last weekend.

The Gunners are aiming to improve their Premier League performances this season after they ended up fifth in the table and missed out on Champions League qualification last term.

Arsenal have not won the title since their famous unbeaten triumph in the 2003-04 campaign.
