Any Arsenal fan looking to find out more about new signing Alexandre Lacazette should look no further than Mesut Ozil for a description, as the German World Cup winner has the perfect phrase to sum up his new team-mate.
Unless you’ve been holidaying on the moon for the last few days, you’ll know by now that Arsenal managed to see off the likes of Atletico Madrid to nab Lazacette’s signature for a club record £53 million from his former club Lyon.
Gooners everywhere were absolutely buzzing about the news, and no Mesut Ozil has probably got them even more excited by describing the 26-year-old as “ice-cold”.
Speaking via Arsenal’s website, Ozil gave his thoughts on the new arrival, saying: “I’m really looking forward to it [working with Lacazette]. He’s a very good striker who has scored many goals in Ligue 1, not just this season but in previous seasons too.
“We’re really happy to have such a class striker here with us.
“From what I’ve heard, he’s meant to be very good, always hungry for goals and ice-cold when he gets into a scoring position.
“My friends who follow the French league know him well and have told me that I’ll definitely have fun with him on the pitch. I hope that he’ll be able to take us further with his goals.
“I’m sure he’s happy to be here and to be able to play with us, and we’re pleased to be able to assist him and help him to score as many goals as possible.”
Avid Arsenal fans might be surprised to see Ozil talking like he has absolutely no doubts about being with the club next season, given his ongoing contract wrangle with the north London club.
Judging by these few comments, we’d be expecting Ozil to stay-put, and Lacazette to be a big hit in England.
