Alexandre Lacazette has revealed that he has been getting advice from Thierry Henry since his move to Arsenal last summer.

The French striker has been settling in well to life at The Emirates after having signed for the Gunners from Lyon in July last year.

Lacazette has made a solid enough start to life in London following his transfer and he has scored 10 goals in the Premier League for the Gunners so far this season.

He recently returned to action from a knee injury and netted twice in Arsenal’s 4-1 win over CSKA Moscow in the Europa League on Thursday night last week.

Lacazette has been keeping in close contact with Arsenal legend Henry and the striker has lifted the lid on some of his chats with the former striker.

Speaking to Arsenal Player, Lacazette said: “Yeah, I talked with Thierry when I arrived and I talk with him regularly.

“He told me England is not as easy as it is in France, he said it is different.

“But he trusted and believed in me, and if Thierry can believe like the coach believes in me, that is good.”

The 26-year-old striker will be hoping to feature for the Gunners when they return to Premier League action on Sunday afternoon with a home clash against Southampton.

The north London side, who are currently sixth in the table, will then switch their attentions back towards European affairs and the return leg of their Europa League quarter-final clash against CSKA Moscow on Thursday night.
