Alexandre Lacazette gives huge boost to Arsenal fans as he reveals unlikely reason why he loves London so much

ARSENAL striker Alexandre Lacazette has revealed the unlikely reason he loves living in London.

The Frenchman cost the Gunners £52million when he arrived from Lyon on what was a club-record deal in July 2017.

He struggled to adapt initially but has found his goalscoring boots this season with six goals in 15 appearances for Unai Emery's side.

And it looks like the 27-year-old has got accustomed to life off the pitch as well.

You would think being the frontman for one of the biggest clubs in world football would lead to a barrage of fan requests every time he steps outside the front door.

But Lacazette, 27, says the best thing about living in London is that he can walk around just like everyone else.

He said: "I love London. 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."

And Lacazette appeared to suggest success for the Gunners this season would be winning a trophy – and not necessarily the Premier League.

He added: "[This season] to win a cup will be the best thing for us and our fans."

Lacazette has been forced to withdraw from the France side just hours after he was called up as a replacement for the injured Anthony Martial.

A groin injury means the Manchester United star will miss upcoming games against Holland and Uruguay.

And it is believed Lacazette has pulled out too because of the same injury.
