Most Arsenal fans will already know this, but for those who don’t there was a report by Metro the other day confirming that the January transfer signing by the Gunners from Borussia Dortmund has quietly gone about starting his new career in record breaking style and it appears that it is not just when he is playing football that the Gabonese international striker is showing his worth to Arsenal Football Club.
As reported by Metro, when Aubameyang scored twice to help us to a vital win over Stoke City, he became the first Arsenal player in Premier League history to score five goals in his first six games, beating some big names including the great Thierry Henry by doing so.
The former Dortmund star continued his impressive start at the weekend as well, scoring again to make it six goals and one assist in his first seven games for Arsenal. As if all that was not good enough, the 28-year old also seems to have the amazing ability to lift his team mates. We have heard that the whole dressing room has been boosted by his arrival but one player in particular has a lot to thank his new teammate for.
There was that classy move to give Alexandre Lacazette the penalty to get him back scoring after an injury lay-off, despite Auba being the designated taker and being on hat-trick. And now, reports Metro, the Gabonese has allayed any fears that the French forward might have had about losing his place, and any worries that Arsene Wenger may have had about upsetting one or both of his main strikers, by declaring his willingness and even keenness to play with Lacazette operating through the middle.
He said, ‘I hope we will have the opportunity to play together – it’s something I said when I first arrived that I hoped to play with him.
‘We have different styles, but I think they’re styles that complement each other – he’s a very good player and a very kind person.
‘We were once rivals in our days in France, but we’re now friends and I hope we can play well together and score lots of goals.’
Pretty cool again from Pierre. So is the new signiong proving himself to be perfect for Arsenal both on and off the pitch?
