Lacazette drops message for Aubameyang after he signs a new deal

Alexandre Lacazette has expressed his delight that Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has signed a new Arsenal contract.

The Frenchman is Aubameyang’s most senior strike partner at the Emirates, and the Gabon striker has been shifted to the left side of attack so that the former Lyon man can be the club’s central striker.

Aubameyang was into the final 12 months of his previous deal at the club already and being the club’s most reliable player, everyone wanted him to stay.

His contract situation dragged on for a long time, but he has finally signed a new deal at the club.

The club used an Instagram Live video to announce him signing the deal and several of Arsenal’s former and present players joined the live call, Lacazette was one of them.

After joining the Instagram Live, the former Lyon man made sure he congratulated Aubameyang for signing the new deal after the delays.

Lacazette said as quoted by the Standard: “Congratulations my brother! Finally after one month after the [gestures with sand timer]… you have the biggest ego in the world.

“But it’s better now. Congrats bro, I’m really happy for you.”

Lacazette scored 10 league games for Arsenal last season, and he has already scored a goal in this campaign. He will hope to have a more productive season.

    This two love each other so much. I admire their friendship and brotherhood. Hope Lacazette stays fit this season and their healthy relationship yields good results on the pitch.
    It will not be a bad idea if Auba gives us 25 goals and Laca gives us 20.

    Bravo for the commitments

    Laca is like the firmino of the top 3. These guys wont score more then the main strikers but they will score important goals and link up play.

    Funny that even Laca didnt know what was going on. So it’s just us fans. Much of been a crazy final contract, and well deserved…but keep going

    Just dropping a friendly message to Laca…..get used to playing for Lyon again. This will be another tough call but, there’s no point now to keeping Laca sitting on the bench when there are hungrier and younger strikers available on the market – with higher upside potential. Besides, we need to re-balance the squad to compensate for older players on excessive wages.
    Also within a year from now, his market value will fall to 25M from the current estimate of 45M.
    Can we take the risk of losing 20M on a the player when Martinelli, Nketiah and the impressive Bolagun are almost about ready to go?
    It think the case for cashing-in on Laca is very strong.

  5. Frank Moeti says:

    Arsenal must not make a silly mistake by letting Laca go, never

    Francis you spoke well, however lots of teen fans might chop off your head the moment they read this.

    But then most players are retained not just on footballing reasons alone but their charismag, leadership and influence within the team, moving on an influential player and warrior like laca is like taking off zebra stripes off manchester united.

    It will shake the dressing room.

    But should a big money offer comes, which is unlikely, dannx ings of southampton will be a perfect replacement.

      Mish, Ings up front would very useful especially when we face mid-low level teams.

    So much for the love and brotherhood between Laca and Auba. I feel each compliments the other and a major reason for auba’s goals would be Laca, his strength in holding up the play allows Auba to cut in and score. Hope the friendship continues and gives success to Arsenal in the years to come.
