Wenger said former Lyon forward Lacazette should be targeting a similar return, having scored 37 goals across all competitions in 2016-17 before his reported €60million switch."With Lacazette it is simple", Wenger said ahead of Friday's Premier League opener against Leicester City.
Against a plucky Leicester side at a packed and tense Emirates Stadium, Arsene Wenger's men scored twice in the last 10 minutes - first through substitute Aaron Ramsey before the much-maligned Giroud headed in the victor off Granit Xhaka's corner.
Following Danny Welbeck's leveller in first-half stoppage time, another corner yielded Leicester's third goal as Riyad Mahrez's cross was headed home by Vardy.
The 30-year-old has been linked with West Ham, Everton and Marseille since the arrival of club-record signing Lacazette.
"He doesn't want to leave and I'm happy that he wants to stay". He's a fantastic player, but as well he has a big weight in this squad. "But he's really loved here, we love him, and in the end he's made a decision to stay".
The match seemed to be following the normal script as the Gunners trailed the visitors 3-2, until Aaron Ramsey levelled things up with seven minutes on the clock, before Giroud sealed the three points in the 88th minute with a thunderous header. Leicester boss Craig Shakespeare on Vardy: "We're encouraging him to play to his strengths, getting in behind, being a nuisance to the defenders, but also to get in that box and score goals".
"There were hard moments when we were down and we managed to get out of that and it's great to see".
"The goals we conceded, we can work to get rid of that".
"I'm always looking for the positives, we came to the Emirates and the players executed the game plan. Ultimately, it wasn't that which cost us, it was the set plays".
