Arsenal footballer, Pierre-Emerick Aubayemang, wants to make his association with Alexandre Lacazette grow when Nicolas Pepe plays for the Gunners for the first time.

Pierre-Emerick Aubayemang and Alexandre Lacazette are Arsenal’s most dangerous players.

And now that Nicolas Pepe will be added to the equation, that fearsome double act can become a treble.

“We are happy that Nicolas came,” Aubameyang told Goal.

“Of course I have a special partnership with Laca, but I think we both have the same mentality.”

“We play for the team first, so I think it is going to be easy [to play with Pepe],” he added.

“We have tried to connect with him in training and for the moment it is going good, very good.”

“I think everybody is excited about that,” said Aubameyang.

“We know he [Pepe] can help us to reach our goals. It is another weapon for us and that is very, very good.”

“It will be difficult I think for him (Emery), but that’s the game. When you have a good team it is like that and you have to make choices,” he commented.

“The next game we play at home and we will see what is the decision of the coach, but as I say I am looking forward to it.”
