Aubameyang looking for Lacazette partnership

  Aubameyang looking for Lacazette partnership Arsenal striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has spoken about his desire to play alongside Alexandre Lacazette. The forward has said that he thinks they compliment each other’s styles of play and that he would enjoy playing in the same side as him. Aubameyang has been a success since joining Arsenal from Borussia Dortmund in January, taking Lacazette’s place in the team. The Gabon international has netted six goals in seven Premier League outings, after his £57m club-record arrival. Lacazette has been forced to watch on from the bench in the league, but Aubameyang is hoping that changes. Speaking to Sky Sports, as quoted by Metro, Aubameyang said this: “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.” Lacazette has struggled to make his mark at times this season after his £50m move from Lyon last summer.
