Alexandre Lacazette: This Arsenal legend played a key role in my decision to join Gunners


New Arsenal striker Alexandre Lacazette says Thierry Henry's words of wisdom have helped him in his career.

The Frenchman has praised the Arsenal legend and says the key to improving is to work hard.

The 26-year-old signed a five-year contract with the Gunners as he became the most expensive player ever as his fee surpassed the £42.4million the club paid to Real Madrid for Mesut Ozil in 2013.

"Thierry shook me up. He told me I always have to keep working on myself, which you tend to forget when you're young," the striker said.

"When a player like Thierry speaks, you can't ignore what he's saying to you.

"I realised that to be a great player meant permanent hard work. Someone like him always wanted to improve, even with the career he had.

"I know very well that on a European scale, I'm still not well known. I want to see if I can answer the questions people are asking."
