out to the wing.
Aubameyang forged a career as one of the deadliest strikers in world football during time at Borussia Dortmund where he scored 141 goals in his 213 appearances.
That type of form persuaded Arsenal to break their transfer record and splash out around £56m for Aubameyang’s signature during the January transfer window.
The Gabon international’s arrival coincided with Lacazette being sidelined for seven weeks following knee surgery so Aubameyang was immediately installed as our main striker.
He’s settled well and took his tally to 5 goals in his 6 Premier League appearances so far with a brace during our 3-0 victory over Stoke City this afternoon. Aubameyang could even have had a hat-trick but he selflessly allowed Lacazette to score a late penalty to seal the three points at the Emirates.
Lacazette’s introduction midway through the second half was the turning point in the game as he made an excellent impact off the bench and it’s led to questions about whether he and Auba came play together in the same team.
Many fans have been calling for Wenger to play both strikers up front with Mesut Ozil playing behind in the No.10 role but it looks like the boss has different ideas.
