"What he is doing is extraordinary" - Thierry Henry urges Arsenal to sign £57million striker


Former Arsenal striker Thierry Henry was full of praise for Alexandre Lacazette amid claims that the Gunners want to sign him this summer.

The 26-year-old scored 28 goals in 30 games last season, becoming one of the most wanted strikers in Europe.

Arsenal have already made an official bid to sign him but it was rejected by Lyon.

Manager Arsene Wenger is determined to strengthen his offensive department and wants to sign Lacazette as well as Kylian Mbappe to replace Olivier Giroud and Alexis Sanchez.

"For me, what Lacazette is doing is extraordinary," Henry told beIN Sports.

"He has become aware of his qualities and he is especially aware that he cannot be average. Congratulations to him, really."
