Cahill caught Mertesacker in the face during the first half of Sunday's Community Shield at Wembley, an incident which left the Gunners veteran bloody and needing to be replaced by Sead Kolasinac. "I saw him playing for a long time in the French league and in the youth team. I think he will be here this season, and if we can do it for more seasons we will do it as well".

These are early days but, as a free transfer from Schalke, he already looks not just like one of the signings of the summer but of future cult potential at The Emirates.

The French forward will be tasked with leading the Arsenal attack in the 2017-18 Premier League season as Arsene Wenger looks to secure a return to the Champions League.

"You can see the power he's got when he's got the ball, his pace and everything".

Former Arsenal striker Henry is confident that Lacazette will prove a success at the north London club ahead of his potential Premier League debut on Friday night.

Lacazette is the latest addition to the Gunners' squad, making the move from Lyon last month for a record transfer fee of £48million. "He has gone through hard times, I want him to have the career he can have and I am quite open on that".

"I'm a big fan of him", he told Sky Sports. Henry believes that the 26-year-old French worldwide has improved Arsenal's attack and given them a different option of play compared to Olivier Giroud.

The new signing found the back of the net in the 83rd minute with an excellent assist from Granit Xhaka and fans were delighted with his performance.

"We are slowly learning it".

Thierry Henry has talked about the recent arrival of Alexandre Lacazette at Arsenal, and has claimed he will be the first ever player to be first-choice for his club, while his benched team-mate is favoured for his global side.

"But we had the intensity in the games in our preparation that is needed to be ready".
