Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has admitted that he is willing to move out wide in order to play with Alexandre Lacazette at Arsenal (via ESPN).
After almost a decade of waiting for a top class centre-forward at Arsenal, the Gunners now have two to choose from.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang started ahead of Alexandre Lacazette on Sunday but was brought on with the Gabon international moving out to the left flank.
Based off of social media and what fans can see on the pitch, it’s clear that the two players have a good relationship and now, Aubameyang has given an insight as to why.
“We really get on well. There is a spark between us when we are both on the pitch together,” Aubameyang told ESPN.
“We look for each other, we saw it today [Sunday] against City when he came on. I don’t mind playing on the left if Laca is in the centre. We both want to do our best for the team.”

Aubameyang spent some time on the left flank for Arsenal last season but cut a lonely figure at times against Manchester City.
“We still need some time to adapt to the new manager and to integrate the new players,” Aubameyang went on.
“It is hard to test ourselves in the first game like this against City because they are so strong. We have to stay positive, work on the things we did well and improve on the rest. We will have a better idea next weekend after the Chelsea game.
“The message of the new coach is all about showing character, to put a lot of intensity, play high up the pitch and implement a big pressing. That’s the style we will play this season.”
It seems clear that both Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette should be starting for this Arsenal team. They are two of the best players at the club and have a fine partnership which the Gunners could benefit from.
