Arsenal forward Alexandre Lacazette produced a ruthless finish as he doubled his side’s lead against Bournemouth on Saturday.
As per BBC Sport, the French international will cost the Gunners £52.6m in total after his summer move from Lyon, and he looks every bit worth the price-tag as he made it two goals from three shots on target in the Premier League.
After being set up by Danny Welbeck, who had earlier put Arsenal ahead, Lacazette steadied himself before producing a top-class finish, as seen in the video below.

It’s what Arsenal have been screaming out for for years, and finally Arsene Wenger has a prolific goalscorer up front who will take his chances and finish off good build-up play around him.
However, there was still reason for some to moan and take a shot at the Arsenal boss after his decision to drop his latest recruit for the trip to Liverpool before the international break.
Many argued this goal is exactly why Lacazette shouldn’t have been dropped and should start every game possible. Add Alexis Sanchez to the mix, who is on the bench on Saturday, and that looks like a very potent attacking force for Arsenal moving forward.
