Alexandre Lacazette insists that he is a huge fan of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and that he has been impressed by the striker’s attitude since his transfer to Arsenal.

The Gabon striker signed for the north London side from Borussia Dortmund in the January transfer window as Arsene Wenger opted to bolster his attacking options at The Emirates.

Aubameyang has made a solid start to life at Arsenal since his move at the turn of the year, scoring five goals and making one assist in six Premier League games.

The 28-year-old demonstrated his selfless side when he allowed Lacazette to take Arsenal’s second penalty in their 3-0 win over Stoke City last weekend.

Lacazette has admitted that he has been hugely impressed by the way Aubameyang has been settling into life at The Emirates since his move as he gets to know his new team-mate.

Lacazette told Arsenal Player: “Auba is a nice guy and after the first penalty [against Stoke] he told me: ‘If there is another one I will give you the ball’. So it was nice from him.

“In life he is a great guy, he is really nice with everybody and it was good for my confidence.

“For the team it shows that even if we are strikers we can think about everyone in the team and we are not focused only to score goals [ourselves].”

Both Aubameyang and Lacazette will be hoping to feature for Arsenal when the Gunners return to Premier League action on Sunday afternoon with a home clash against Southampton at The Emirates.

The north London side will then turn their attentions back towards European affairs and the crunch return leg of their Europa League quarter-final against CSKA Moscow on Wednesday night.
