The Premier League new boy is starting to get to grips with England’s top flight after a slow start and is determined to become one of Wenger’s key men.

He said: “I have to improve my statistics again and again. I have been patient and worked.

“When you come into a new club, there is a time to adapt. Even Thierry Henry experienced it. If I could achieved just half of what he achieved.”

He added: “I love that city [London], it is eccentric, and so cosmopolitan. There are so many things to do. You can never be bored.”
