Alexandre Lacazette has revealed the Arsenal player who’s impressed him most so far to be the ‘skillful’ defender Laurent Koscielny.

The France international joined the Gunners in a club-record £52million transfer from Lyon this summer, and has made a bright start by scoring one goal in two games so far in pre-season.

Lacazette is in good company at the Emirates Stadium as he admits his fellow countrymen are helping him settle in, and he also singled out Koscielny for special praise.

In conversation with the defender on Arsenal Player, Lacazette admitted he was surprised at how technically gifted Koscielny was for a centre-back.

When asked who’s impressed him most so far, Lacazette said: ‘Lolo (Koscielny)! Because for a centre-back he’s pretty skillful.’

Lacazette added that he’s been spending most of his time with midfielder Francis Coquelin, and talked about his first impressions of Arsenal as a club.
