Alexandre Lacazette may have only been at Arsenal for a month but the striker is over the moon with his new club.

Lacazette signed for Arsenal in July after a whole season of speculation for a club record of £52m and the 26-year-old has described joining the Gunners as moving to a ‘new world’.

“Everything has changed,” Lacazette said to the Evening Standard. “I felt that I was entering a new world. In terms of the players, the technical staff, the football – everything is different.

“That is what I was looking for. It is I who needs to adapt as soon as possible.

“Everything is different. It is bigger, goes faster, stronger – it’s good. It’s a great league with lots of teams. In my opinion there is no small team.

“Even against the smallest one it is not always easy. I can’t wait to see how the season goes.”

Until now, Lacazette played for Lyon his entire footballing career, joining their youth team in 2003 at the age of just 12, working his way through the ranks to their B team, where he made 53 appearances and scored 23 goals, and then the senior side.

Therefore, he’s never experienced what it’s like at another club.

Although Lyon are a solid Ligue 1 club, they’re not Arsenal, who are renowned for having some of the best training facilities in the world.

The Gunners also have some of the best coaches, as well as Arsene Wenger as a manager, so it’s no wonder that Lacazette feels as if he’s in dream land right now.

He’s also now training alongside the likes of Petr Cech, Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez, which must also be a huge boost.

Lacazette still has the Premier League to ‘look forward’ to, which will be a bit of a rude awakening for him if he already thinks training sessions alone go ‘faster and stronger’. However, he seems happy and willing to adapt; he knows he needs to as English football is different to French.

The striker has gotten off to a good start though as he’s already scored twice in pre-season against Sydney FC and Sevilla.

Therefore, Arsene Wenger doesn’t think he’ll have much of a problem bedding in.

“We started with a 2-0 win over Sydney FC – and I was particularly pleased to see Alexandre Lacazette mark his first appearance for us with a goal,” the boss said in his Emirates Cup programme notes [via Metro].

“It’s never a coincidence when people score goals because they’re in the right place at the right moment.

“It’s also good that he got a goal straight away as people wait for you to score when you’re a striker.

“Our time in China saw us play against two top European opponents.”
