Lyon whizkid Aouar: Arsenal attacker Lacazette a great mentor

Lyon whizkid Houssem Aouar has revealed how Arsenal striker Alexandre Lacazette has been mentoring him.

Aouar admits Lacazette is in regular contact.

He told Goal: "He wrote to me a lot. He explained to me that all the great players have gone through difficult times in their careers.

"As soon as I joined the squad, Alex took me under his wing. We did not cut the contact after his departure and he was there at times when it was a little more difficult to cheer me up and motivate me for the future."

Lacazette left OL last summer for Arsenal.
