The France international completed a £52m move to Arsenal from Lyon in the 2017 summer transfer window, having been regularly linked with a move to the north London side since his emergence at the French club.
Lacazette scored on his Premier League debut in Arsenal’s 4-3 victory over Leicester City in their season opener in 2017-18, but Arsene Wenger used his record signing sparingly despite the French striker’s decent goal record.
The 27-year-old was faced with an uncertain future at the Emirates Stadium when Arsenal set a new transfer record with the £58m signing of Borussia Dortmund striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang in the January transfer window.
However, the pair have struck a good relationship on and off the pitch, and Wenger’s replacement Unai Emery has been able to accommodate both strikers in the same starting line up.
Former Arsenal midfielder Robson watched Lacazette a lot during his spell at boyhood club Lyon, scoring 100 goals in 203 appearances in Ligue 1.
However, the ESPN FC pundit believes the France star is willing to run more in an Arsenal shirt.
“I watched Lacazette a lot at Lyon and I know one or two other scouts went to watch him,” Robson told Love Sport, as quoted by the Daily Express.
“We all came back and went: ‘He’s scored goals but he’s a bit lazy and I’m not sure he made enough runs.
“‘He didn’t hold up the play when he had his back to goal.’”
“I think he’s changed at Arsenal,” Robson continued.
“He does make better runs, he is a better character than he was when he was playing for Lyon.
“He’s a player that I thought would probably leave Arsenal at the end of last season and wouldn’t be wanted but now he’s a player that is scoring goals and is looking a real threat.
“Along with Aubameyang, they look as though they could form a good partnership at some point.”
Arsenal have scored 26 times in the Premier League in the current campaign and Lacazette has contributed five goals to that haul.
The Gunners will make the trip to Bournemouth in their next Premier League game at Vitality Stadium on Sunday 25 November.
