Alexandre Lacazette has insisted that he is not trying to follow in the footsteps of Thierry Henry at Arsenal.
The French forward has been in brilliant form for Arsenal since signing for the north London side from Lyon back in July.
Lacazette has scored eight goals and made one assist in his first 16 Premier League outings for the north London side and has showed no signs of struggling to adapt to the rigours of English football.
The 26-year-old has inevitably been compared to Thierry Henry, who is Arsenal’s all-time record goal-scorer and was also a France international.
However, Lacazette has insisted that he is his own man and that he is not trying to “copy” what Henry achieved at the north London club.
Asked if Henry’s success at the club acted as inspiration, Lacazette told Sky Sports: “I guess, in terms of inspiration I do admire him but I wouldn’t want to copy him.
“Everyone has their own career, their own fate and everyone writes their own story.”
Arsenal will return to Premier League action on Saturday when they host Newcastle United at The Emirates.
The north London side have not won the Premier League title since their famous unbeaten triumph in the 2003-04 campaign.
They finished fifth in the Premier League table last season but also won the FA Cup for the third time in four years.
