They have only played together three times so far, but that is more than enough for Alexis to have drawn a positive impression of the “excellent” Alexandre Lacazette.
Our new French forward has scored four times in eight Premier League appearances, and Alexis feels his team-mate has all the attributes to succeed in England.
“When he has a goalscoring chance, he is a good finisher,” the Chile forward told Arsenal Player. “He’s a classic striker.
“He was a successful player in France, and the two of us work well together. He’s an excellent player.
“I believe we have [a good understanding]. We haven’t played that many games together but when we have, I like how he plays.
“He finds space and understands the game well. He is very talented.”
