Although Alexandre Lacazette has only been at the club for a short while, he has been hugely impressed with two of our rising stars.
Reiss Nelson and Eddie Nketiah - who are expected to feature in the Carabao Cup third-round tie against Doncaster - caught the eye during the pre-season tour of Australia and China, and the France international likes what he has seen.

“I think Reiss is very good,” Lacazette told Arsenal Player. “I believe he will be a top player for the club. He already impressed me during pre-season and it's great to see what he's been doing for the under-23s.
“His stats are very good and he's been performing well. When he's played with us, he's shown that he has real quality.
“I really like Eddie [Nketiah] as well. He's a great striker at the academy. He is very calm in front of goal and has great technique.”
