Our signing of Alexandre Lacazette has excited many - not least Mesut Ozil.
Our German playmaker has created 42 Premier League goals since his summer 2013 arrival at the club, and he can’t wait to link up with Lacazette, who scored 91 times in his last four seasons at Lyon.
“I’m really looking forward to it,” Ozil told Arsenal Player. “He's a very good striker who has scored many goals in Ligue 1, not just this season but in previous seasons too. We’re really happy to have such a class striker here with us.
“From what I’ve heard, he’s meant to be very good, always hungry for goals and ice-cold when he gets into a scoring position. My friends who follow the French league know him well and have told me that I’ll definitely have fun with him on the pitch.
“I hope that he’ll be able to take us further with his goals. I’m sure he’s happy to be here and to be able to play with us, and we’re pleased to be able to assist him and help him to score as many goals as possible.”
