Alexandre Lacazette suggests that supporters in France generate a better atmosphere at football grounds than those in England.

Arsenal striker Alexandre Lacazette has confessed that he misses the atmosphere generated at Ligue 1 grounds compared to those in the Premier League.

The 27-year-old has adjusted well to life in England since arriving from Lyon in a £52m transfer 15 months ago, scoring 18 league goals in 40 appearances.

Lacazette misses certain aspects of life back home, however, claiming that supporters in his native France are more passionate than English fans.

"I miss Ligue 1's atmosphere," he told Le Progres. "In England, the fans are more spectators than supporters. There's a better atmosphere in French stadiums."

Lacazette netted 129 goals in 275 outings for hometown club Lyon ahead of making the move to Arsenal last year.
