Alexandre Lacazette has stated once again he believes that he and Pierre Emerick Aubameyang can play together, and that with one season in Englush football under his belt he’ll be better in the upcoming season.
The French international struggled at times last season, particularly in the early part of his career with the club as Arsene Wenger often substituted him, and a knee injury mid-season was partly responsible for a goal drought.
However, on his return to action he scored 8 times in his last 10 games, and the former Lyon man is sure this will stand him in good stead this season.
“I hope and I think that will be better than last year because I have one year in Premier League, so of course I will be better,” he said.
And on his relationship with Aubameyang, which has developed on and off the pitch, he said the pair weren’t close before their time at Arsenal, but that they can work together.
“I didn’t know him before because he used to play for the rival when I was in France,” he said.
“But since he came to Arsenal, I’m happy with him and we have a good relationship.
“I like when he plays around me, if he plays in front or on the left, it’s good for me.”
