Alexandre Lacazette has claimed that he and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang are well-suited to be able to play with each other for Arsenal.

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

The Gabon striker has made a solid start to his Arsenal career so far, scoring five goals and making one assist in six Premier League games since the move to north London.

Lacazette has been working his way back to full fitness after a lay-off with a knee injury and will be hoping to combine well with Aubameyang between now and the end of the season.

And the French striker, who signed for the Gunners from Lyon in the summer transfer window last year, believes that Aubameyang will be able to complement his game at The Emirates.

Asked if he thinks that the two stars can play together, Lacazette told Arsenal Player: “Yes, because he is different player.

“He loves the space and I’m a player who loves to get the ball to my feet.

“I think we can play together like on Sunday but the coach will decide and we need to respect the decision. But I like how Pierre plays and I think we can be good together.”

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 in north London.

The north London side will then switch their attentions towards the return leg of their crunch Europa League quarter-final clash against CSKA Moscow in Russia on Thursday night.
