Aubameyang hopes to forge Lacazette partnership

Arsenal striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has insisted he wants to play with Alexandre Lacazette rather than in his place.

Lacazette joined Arsenal in the summer for £50 million, but seemed to initially struggle to settle in. Then, when the Gunners broke their transfer record once again to bring in Aubameyang from Borussia Dortmund in January, some thought that Lacazette future was over before it has even begun.

However, the strikers have seemingly started to form a partnership after they both got on the scoresheet for their recent game against Stoke.

Now, speaking to Sky Sports, Aubameyang has admitted that he gets the chance to develop that partnership on a more regular basis.

He added: “I hope we will have the opportunity to play together – it’s something I said when I first arrived that I hoped to play with him.

“We have different styles, but I think they’re styles that complement each other – he’s a very good player and a very kind person.

“We were once rivals in our days in France, but we’re now friends and I hope we can play well together and score lots of goals.”
