Arsenal striker, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, has hinted to Unai Emery that he wants to play alongside Alexandre Lacazette in Arsenal’s attack.
Emery has struggled at times to find a tactical system that accomodates both Aubameyang and Lacazette.
Earlier on in the season, he rotated between the two up front or played one of them on the wing using a 4-2-3-1 formation.
Although Aubameyang has established himself as Arsenal’s first-choice striker under Emery, Lacazette has had a good run in the side of late, starting five of the club’s last six games in all competitions with Emery alternating between a 3-5-2 and 4-3-1-2.
Despite insisting his favoured position is up front, though, Aubameyang insisted he will play out wide if Emery asks him to.
Speaking to Sky Sports, Aubameyang said: “My favourite role is playing striker, in front. I also like playing on the wing, but I think my best position is striker.
“I like to play with two up front, it’s nice because you can do some combinations with the other strikers. If the coach needs me on the right or on the left, it doesn’t matter, I go and I fight for the team, it’s no problem.”
