Lacazette: 'Me and Auba were friends from the start'

Alexandre Lacazette has revealed there is no rivalry with his fellow teammate Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

If new Arsenal boss Unai Emery doesn't play two strikers upfront, Aubameyang and Lacazette will have to battle for the no.9 spot.

Lacazette signed for the Gunners six months before the north London side sealed Aubameyang's services in January. However, the Frenchman said he has been friends with the Gabon international since his arrival from Bundesliga side Dortmund.

‘We know that if we are together, we can stronger and we just have the same target together, which is to win something for the club,’ Lacazette told Arsenal Player.

‘So of course we don’t have any problem with each other. When he came to the club [we got on immediately]. We talked and realised we liked each other, so it’s been since the beginning.

‘I like to be with Aubam, he’s a good boy, a good man and a good player and every day we laugh a lot so I like to hang out with him.

‘I hope we will score a lot of goals together, can win a lot of games and win some trophies.’
