There is no doubt Arsene Wenger has put smiles on faces of some Arsenal supporters having made two important signing already this summer.
Arsenal completed the signing of Sead Kolasnic from Schalke 04 on a free transfer and Alexandre Lacazette from Lyon on a £52.6m club record fee.
Now Arsene Wenger has confirmed where the French striker will operate from next season; Lacazette featured in the centre-forward position during his debut against Sydney FC which saw him score his first goal in Arsenal colours.
And with Olivier Giroud in the starting line-up on Saturday that has created some confusion over where Lacazette will feature
Now Wenger has confirmed he will often play upfront.
“Lacazette will play most of the time as centre forward.” he said
“He can play in any system because he’s a provider as well, he can combine and play in a 442.
“At the moment he plays a little bit behind Giroud, tonight he was more on the left, and he can play in that position as well.”
