Arsenal are preparing for their first season under Unai Emery, who has inherited a side from that is blessed with attacking options.

have significantly bolstered their front line during the past 12 months by signing and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, giving Emery two top-class forwards to choose from this season.

Lacazette was signed on a then club-record deal from last summer but endured an inconsistent debut campaign at the Stadium, spending a large chunk of the season sidelined through injury, although he ended the season as Arsenal’s top-scorer with 17 goals.

Arsenal legend Robert is now backing his compatriot to improve on that tally this season, telling Bwin he will reach the 20-goal mark.

“Lacazette is a key player for Arsenal. I think he can have a big impact at Arsenal and will score 15-20 goals this season.

“It’s important for Lacazette to get some stability so he has to talk to [Unai] Emery and work out where he is in the manager’s plans for the future. He’s a good striker and would have been upset to miss out on ’s squad, but he can definitely get back in the team with a good season this year.”
