Tyreece John-Jules has told UMM that Alexandre Lacazette is an amazing guy, suggesting the bond he has built with the Arsenal striker took him by surprise.

It was claimed by Football London earlier this season that there were hopes amongst some at Arsenal that he could become a first-team regular in the future.

He has spent the year on loan at Doncaster. And when he has been fit, he has vindicated those reports with some outstanding displays.

And it seems like he may have found himself the perfect mentor at the Emirates as he opened up on the relationship he has with Lacazette.

“He’s an amazing guy,” he told UMM. “When I first went up, I didn’t expect to click with anyone like I did with him.

“He’s just like a normal guy, a normal person. He’s such a cool guy, we have banter, we talk serious sometimes. But yeah, he’s an amazing guy, you can talk to him about anything.”

Arsenal’s young forwards really do appear to have the perfect players to look up to.

Along with Lacazette, Arsenal, of course, have Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang setting the standard.

Neither player has enjoyed the best season. But they remain two world-class attacking players who have enjoyed fantastic careers up until this point.

Players such as John-Jules and Folarin Balogun certainly appear to have a better chance of realising their full potential with figures such as Lacazette and Aubameyang showing them the way.
