Alexandre Lacazette is “different” to Karim Benzema but can be as successful as the Real Madrid star, says Arsenal colleague Mesut Özil.
World Cup winner Özil spent three years alongside Benzema during a productive stint in Spain with the reigning La Liga champions.
He told SFR Sport on comparisons between Lacazette and Benzema: “I think Lacazette’s game is different. But I hope he will have as much success as Benzema.”
“He has his head on his shoulders, he works hard. I hope he scores as many goals as Benzema with the French national team.”
