Alexis believes this aspect of his game is just as important as scoring himself.

“I think it's vital for Arsenal that I pick the ball up and provide assists to Ozil or Ramsey,” he said.

“I think nowadays midfielders need to have the mentality of getting in to the box and scoring goals.

“We all have that ability to get in the area and that ambition to score goals, too.”
