Lacazette praises Auba, believes bond with him will help get good results

Alexandre Lacazette believes his friendship with Aubameyang will continue to pay dividends for Arsenal after he fired them to victory against Cardiff City on Sunday.

Lacazette put the ball past Neil Etheridge to seal a 3-2 triumph nine minutes to the end of the match, after having assisted a wonderful goal by Aubameyang, as the duo rewarded coach Unai Emery’s decision to start them together for the first time this season.

The arrival of Aubameyang from Borussia Dortmund in January relegated Lacazette to the bench last season.

But that has not stopped them from clicking on a personal level and the front line of Emery has worked better every time both men have featured together.

If we are well off the field, it is easier for us to play on the field, Lacazette told Sky Sports after a man of the match performance.

For me, it was important to start well. I wanted to show the coach that I can be in the first 11.

I think I did it and I’m happy, the Frenchman added.

Arsenal goes into the international recess with consecutive victories after their slow start to the season, where a trip to Chelsea followed an opening weekend showdown with the champions, City.

We wanted to make the most of the opportunity we had today, midfielder Aaron Ramsey told Sky Sports, having seen Cardiff come back twice in an end to end encounter.

We had a difficult start against Manchester City and Chelsea, but we have recovered well, the crowd here is excellent and we have done well to overcome that.

Ramsey became known while playing at childhood club, Cardiff and added: It’s always emotional, I love coming back here and playing on this pitch in front of those fans.

Peter Crouch slams Arsenal for letting this midfielder leave for free

Former Burnley striker, Peter Crouch has come hard on Arsenal FC for letting Wales international and midfielder, Aaron Ramsey leave for free.

Ramsey will move to Italian side Juventus for free at the end of the season after a decade at Arsenal.

The Welsh midfielder has been instrumental for the Gunners this season, scoring goals and creating assists when needed.

However, Peter Crouch in a statement disclosed it is sad that Arsenal will lose Ramsey for nothing.

“It’s another week that has shown the error of their ways,” Crouch wrote in the Daily Mail.
“I have written a couple of times this season about Aaron Ramsey and you will know my position.

“I found it madness they were not prepared to offer him another deal and I can’t believe they are losing him to Juventus for free.

“Ramsey is quality. He is the type of footballer that should cost someone £40m in a transfer fee alone.

“If Arsenal want to replace him like-for-like, that is the type of investment they will need to make, along with top-end wages.

“They will find it is no straightforward task.
“For Arsenal to make the same mistake so soon after losing Alexis Sanchez has left me scratching my head. It was avoidable.”

Arsenal Eyeing £25m Summer Move For Scottish Left-back

Arsenal are reportedly plotting a summer move for Celtic left-back Kieran Tierney.

The Gunners want to strengthen their squad with a new left-back and the £25m-rated Tierney is being considered by the North Londoners.

Arsenal will have to contend with the threat of German Bundesliga club Borussia Dortmund in their quest to sign the highly rated Kieran Tierney.

The interest of Borussia Dortmund in Tierney was revealed by popular media outlet The Sun.

It was also revealed that fellow Premier League side Leicester City are also keen on a transfer for the Scottish international left-back when the transfer window reopens this summer.

Leicester City manager Brendan Rodgers wants to sign Tierney whom he worked with at Scottish champions Celtic.

The Foxes have an exciting first choice left-back in Ben Chilwell but the Three Lions of England defender is courting interest from Premier League champions Manchester City and Kieran Tierney could be his replacement at the King Power Stadium.

Kieran Tierney was part of the Celtic team that won a treble in each of the last two seasons under Brendan Rodgers.

Former Liverpool and Swansea City manager Rodgers left Celtic to take up the managerial job at Leicester City at the end of last month.

He will have to see off Arsenal for the right to sign the aforementioned Tierney.

Arsenal and manager Unai Emery have identified a new left-back as a top priority ahead of this summer’s transfer window.
