Alexis Sanchez has hailed the qualities of new signing Alexandre Lacazette, in particular, his finishing skills.
He also says that the duo can work well together, although due to injuries, a late start to the season, and the manager fiddling around with his team a lot, it’s not something we’ve seen enough of in this current campaign.
The 26-year-old French striker who joined from Lyon for the £46m transfer fee has scored five goals in nine Premier League matches, and Alexis feels his team-mate has all the attributes to succeed in England.
“When he has a goalscoring chance, he is a good finisher,” he said. “He’s a classic striker.
“He was a successful player in France, and the two of us work well together. He’s an excellent player.”
Asked if they have an understanding on the pitch yet, he continued, “I believe we have. We haven’t played that many games together, but when we have, I like how he plays.
“He finds space and understands the game well. He is very talented.”
