Thierry Henry has insisted that he is convinced that Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang can play together for Arsenal.

Aubameyang has been settling into life at Arsenal after having signed for the Gunners from Borussia Dortmund in the January transfer window.

The Gabon striker has been in good form for the Gunners since his move and has scored six goals and made two assists in eight Premier League games for Arsene Wenger’s men so far.

Lacazette is also in his first season at Arsenal after having signed for the Gunners from Lyon in the summer transfer window last July.

There had been questions about whether the attacking pair would be able to line up together in the Arsenal team, but Henry seems convinced that they can complement each other.

Speaking to Sky Sports on Sunday, Henry said: “I said it before, I think they can (play together).

“I think they can also play with (Danny) Welbeck.

“I like the fact they are direct, they don’t come short, they like to go in behind.”

Arsenal are now preparing for their home clash against West Ham United on Sunday in the Premier League, before they turn their attentions towards their crunch Europa League showdown with Atletico Madrid in the semi-finals.

The Gunners are sixth in the Premier League table at present, so winning the Europa League is their best hope of qualifying for the Champions League next season.
