Wenger confirms what he could do with Lacazette and Aubameyang

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has revealed his stance on whether Pierre Emerick-Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette are capable of playing together upfront.

For several years, the Arsenal manager was put under pressure by many fans and pundits to sign new goalscorers of top quality to improve his squad.

Wenger finally answered those calls by securing the addition of Alexandre Lacazette during last summer.

The Gunners boss then went even further by bringing in Pierre Emerick-Aubameyang after the departure of Alexis Sanchez during the January transfer window.

Despite having two capable strikers available, Wenger has not always chosen to deploy both of them in the attack.

But after witnessing Aubameyang and Lacazette get on the score sheet against Stoke City on Sunday, the Gunners boss is now open to the idea of playing them together.

“Yes, I think they can play together.” the Arsenal manager said

“Yeah, I think Aubameyang played a long part of his career on the left, at St Etienne, and in the first year at Dortmund [with Lewandowski], he played on the left.

“After, when Lewandowski moved to Bayern Munich, he played centrally.”
