Ozil explains why he cannot wait to play with £52m Arsenal new boy Lacazette

Date Posted,July 6, 2017

Arsenal star Mesut Ozil has revealed his thoughts on Alexandre Lacazette signing for the Gunners this summer – and it’s safe to say he’s a bit excited.

Lacazette put pen to paper on a five-year deal at the Emirates just last week after Arsene Wenger shattered the club’s record transfer fee – previously Ozil’s £42.2million price tag – to sign him for £52million.

Arsenal now have a lot of fire power going into next season – especially if they can keep hold of Alexis Sanchez – and Ozil is excited for the campaign to begin.

“I’m really looking forward to it,” Ozil told Arsenal Player. “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.”
