Arsenal striker tells Ian Wright about his love of London and adapting to the pace of the Premier League

He may be one of the most well-known players in the Premier League but Alexandre Lacazette is enjoying the anonymity afforded him by living in London.

The Arsenal striker is thriving in his second season in English football, having established a regular starting place, and has rewarded new head coach Unai Emery with five goals in 12 appearances.

But off the pitch the Frenchman is happy to stay away from the limelight and is relishing the freedom of living in the English capital.

Loving London

"I love London," he says in an interview with Ian Wright. "I came here to discover something different. It’s a great city, I like how people think here.

"Sometimes I have no hat, no glasses and people don’t recognise me. When I can work, chill and no one knows who I am, this is good."

Lacazette also tells Wright how he grew up following Arsenal, the frustrations of his first season at the club and the differences between the pace of Ligue 1 and the Premier League.
