Having spent his entire life in Lyon before last summer’s move to England, it is understandable that London living has taken some getting used to for Alexandre Lacazette.
The France international has adapted seamlessly on the pitch, but what about off it?
“A lot of things changed for me,” Lacazette told Arsenal Player. “Firstly, the language, obviously.
“Having to adapt to their accent because not everybody’s accent is always easy to understand. Also, the roads. They are different from France. Everything is on the other side.
“[Then there’s] the food - I haven’t gotten used to English food yet. So quite a lot but I’m getting used to it.
“I have seen a lot of the city. I’ve been on London Bridge. I went to see Big Ben, although I’d already seen that before, the London Eye, the city centre. Oxford Circus, all of that.
“I did some shopping, of course, as I like clothes, so I made the most of it as you’ve got almost all of the shops there.”
