Alexandre Lacazette gives first interview as an Arsenal player [Video]

Big praise

Alexandre Lacazette has described Arsenal as a ‘legendary club’ following his club-record move from Lyon to the Gunners on Wednesday afternoon.

The Frenchman has joined the club for a record £53 million as Arsene Wenger looks to take the club back into the Champions League.

Arsenal will compete in the Europa League next season having finished outside the top four for the first time in over 20 years.

Now, with Alexandre Lacazette leading the line, the club are immensely boosted ahead of what will be a pivotal season for the club.

Speaking following his move, the player lauded praise on the side and explained that it was a dream of his to play for the club.

This was due to the influence that French players such as Thierry Henry and others had on the club.

He also spoke of what you can expect from the man himself next season.

Alexis future no clearer
