"I'm a big fan of him" - Thierry Henry excited with Arsenal's new £52.6million signing

By

Arsenal legend Thierry Henry says he is a "big fan" of new signing Alexandre Lacazette.

The Frenchman joined the Gunners from Lyon and immediately became one of the favourite players for the Arsenal fans.

He went close against Chelsea as he hit the post in the first half of the game and is expected to be one of the major highlights of this season's English Premier League.

"[Lacazette] has a different game to Giroud, which I think is good because you need different types of strikers," Henry told Sky Sports News.

"It's ironic when you think about it that Giroud starts for France and Lacazette is his sub, and it looks at club level like Giroud will be the sub. I don't know if that's ever happened in the history of the game!

"He did it in the French league and people might say it's a different league but, with due respect to Lyon, he'll also be with better players. I'm backing him to have a good season.

"But that rotation will be key. Sometimes you'll need Giroud or even [Alexis] Sanchez in the middle and sometimes you'll need [Danny] Welbeck or [Theo] Walcott, whoever will have an impact.

"You're waiting on Lacazette to have an impact with the fee, I know you shouldn't mention that, but that's how it is nowadays."
