Alexis has played alongside some of the biggest names in world football during his career, so when he passes judgement on another player it is worth paying attention to.

One member of the Arsenal squad who has caught his eye is Alex Iwobi, with the Nigeria international earning yet more playing time after making his breakthrough in the 2015/16 season.

"I really like Alex," Alexis said. "He's a player that can play up front, in the centre, he's good at one on ones.

"If he has a winning mentality and keeps pushing forward I think he can do very well. I really like him."
