In what will come as one of the most surprising transfer rumours in the summer, it looks as though London club Arsenal will be readily willing to listen to offers for want-away striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang. The Gabonese striker has been out of form for the majority of this campaign and is also reportedly not settled at the club, leading to reports claiming that he may not be an Arsenal player when Arsenal play their first fixture of the next season.
Aubameyang has come under huge criticism from pundits this season after failing to replicate his fine form of last season while he has also sparked debate among fans who believe he should no longer start games for the club. French striker Alexandre Lacazette has started the Gunners’ last few games during which Aubameyang was relegated to the substitutes’ bench, adding even more fuel to the speculations linking him away from the club.

Times journalist Tony Cascarino has urged Alexandre Lacazette to learn from Romelu Lukaku’s performances in recent matches. The Arsenal striker was guilty of squandering two clear-cut chances in the 1-1 derby draw against Tottenham Hotspur last weekend and one of those included a tame effort with his left foot.
In a report covered by The Times, former Chelsea ace Cascarino has said that Lacazette can learn from recent exploits of Lukaku, who has improved his goalscoring prowess under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. He added that the Manchester United ace has vastly improved on his finishing with his weaker right foot and Lacazette should take up a similar challenge in training.

Arsenal manager Unai Emery has said that Alex Iwobi still has room for improvement despite making another notable impact from the substitutes’ bench. The Nigeria international was handed a fresh long-term deal during the summer and he has since been a player transformed with his workrate and distribution catching the eye of the faithful and pundits alike.
Against Liverpool, Arsenal appeared on course to suffer a 1-0 defeat on Saturday but Iwobi came off the bench to make the crucial impact after he provided the through ball for Alexandre Lacazette, who levelled the scores with a sublime curler from acute range after beating goalkeeper Alisson Becker.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has suggested that Alexandre Lacazette’s confidence may have been hampered following the arrival of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang last month. The France international has played as a substitute in his previous two appearances, the latter of which came against Tottenham Hotspur.
The Gunners struggled to find any cutting edge during last weekend’s north London derby versus Spurs, but ultimately there was some regret after Lacazette missed a couple of clear-cut chances at the end. The Gunners were trailing 1-0 heading into the final 10 minutes of the game, and the Frenchman fluffed his line on two occasions including a one-and-one with Hugo Lloris.
