Aubameyang raves about ‘crazy’ Arsenal front three
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang can't wait to line up with Nicolas Pepe and Alexandre Lacazette for Arsenal this season
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang says that Arsenal’s front three of him, Alexandre Lacazette and Nicolas Pepe will be “crazy” this season.
The north London side made Ivory Coast international Pepe their club-record signing this summer when they brought him to The Emirates from Lille earlier this month.
Pepe came on to make his Premier League debut in the second half of Arsenal’s 1-0 win over Newcastle United at St James’ Park on Sunday afternoon.
Unai Emery opted to start both Pepe and Lacazette on the bench for Sunday’s game, and Arsenal fans will be eager to see the trio start up front together in the coming games.
And Gabon international Aubameyang is looking forward to lining up with the pair this season.
Speaking in an interview quoted by The Sun, Aubameyang said: “It is going to be crazy — everybody is excited.
“I am looking forward to it. The next game is at home and we will see what is the coach’s decision.
“It will be difficult for him to fit us all in but that’s the game. When you have a good team, it’s like that.”
Arsenal will return to Premier League action on Saturday lunchtime when they take on Burnley at The Emirates.
The north London side are aiming to break back into the top four this term at the very least after they ended up fifth and without a trophy last season.
The Gunners have not lifted the Premier League trophy since their famous unbeaten triumph in the 2003-04 campaign.
