'Animal' Kolasinac ready to rumble, says Walcott

Alexandre Lacazette urges Arsenal fans Don't compare me to Thierry Henry

"We had a tough pre-season and, in the six days between now until we start the league, we have to be focused on the next game", said the former Juventus and Italy coach.

Henry added: "We all know about his quality".

Kolasinac joined Arsenal on a free transfer from Schalke in the close-season and already looks an ideal fit for the physical demands of the Premier League. The former Germany youth worldwide says left-back is "where I feel most comfortable" but he showed his quality as a centre-half when he replaced Per Mertesacker at Wembley.

The Gunners endured a miserable Premier League campaign finishing outside of Champions League qualification for the first time in Arsene Wenger's 21-year reign.

"I'm pretty well for that hit and for the deep cut I suffered, I feel quite well".

But it was his remarkable physique that really caught the eye, with journalist Jack Pitt-Brooke picking him as a possible Player of the Season as Arsenal fans struggled to keep themselves together.

"The home support will be so key this season".

"This league is the best and he's going to be one of the best in the league".

The England International knows last season's performance in the Premier League was not acceptable given the talent in the squad, but has sworn his side have learnt from past mistakes. We had a good end to last season and we are getting used to a new system.

Much has been made of Lacazette competing with Olivier Giroud for that centre-forward spot, but Henry says Alexis Sanchez, Danny Welbeck and Theo Walcott will also be options there.

Kolasinac only featured against Chelsea due to a head injury sustained in the 32nd minute by Per Mertesacker but he enhanced his case to start Friday's Premier League clash against Leicester City, a game which assumes extra importance given Arsenal poor recent record first up.

"When you buy players from overseas you don't know for sure how they will adapt, but I back Lacazette to be successful in the Premier League".
