Wenger challenges Arsenal's record signing Lacazette to emulate Ibrahimovic

Arsenal Jack Wilshere Newcastle Transfer News

While Wenger admitted the standard between the French and English domestic leagues can not necessarily be compared, he backed his new recruit to replicate Zlatan Ibrahimovic's debut season in the Premier League following his transfer from PSG to Manchester United. I have sympathy for him but do I feel sorry for Chelsea because they don't have enough players?

Walcott, however, is feeling poised ahead of the new Premier League season and revealed the whole squad are relishing the challenge ahead.

"You have players who are pumped up in the gym, and players who are born strong, and he is the second", said Wenger. The north London side have lost three of their last four opening day ties in the Premier League, and have only won one opening day match in their last eight seasons.

"Goalscoring record is not necessarily transferable from the French League to the English league, that's for sure", said Wenger.

"But you could say that Ibrahimovic transferred an identical amount of goals from France to England".

Ibrahimovic also arrived from Ligue 1 last season, joining Manchester United from Paris Saint-Germain as he scored 17 league goals and 28 in all competitions. "So that's the target Lacazette should set".

Meteorologists at The Weather Channel are starting to get a look at the overall weather pattern that may be in place in two weeks. On Monday, August 21 , people will be able to view a total solar eclipse as it moves eastward through the US from OR to SC .

"They have been quite spectacular in the transfer market". "At the moment I have 33 players and it's very hard to manage such a high number on a daily basis", he added, hinting that squad players - nearly certain to include Lucas Pérez, Kieran Gibbs and Calum Chambers - will have to be moved on before further incoming movement occurs. "At the moment the most active have been United, City and Liverpool a bit". But if you look at the number of players on loan, they can call a few back.

"We will let people talk on the outside". We have a game backed on mobility and technique and I think he can integrate that well. "We will focus first on the Premier League, for us it is the most important".

"It's going to be a tough season, we all know that, with the Europa as well", he said.

"We were never close", he added when asked about Arsenal moving for Mahrez.

"We've got owners who want to keep their best players".
