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.

Arsenal Edge Closer To Denis Suarez Transfer

North London giants Arsenal have moved closer to a transfer for Spanish international midfielder Denis Suarez after they made a breakthrough in their bid to him from La Liga giants Barcelona during the ongoing January transfer window.

The Daily Express say that the North Londoners are closing in on a move for Denis Suarez after both parties reached an amicable point over his transfer.

Arsenal initially wanted a loan deal with the option to buy the talented midfielder in the summer but Barcelona were adamant that they will only sanction a permanent transfer for the 25-year-old.

It was revealed that both clubs have agreed for Denis Suarez to join Arsenal on loan for the rest of the season with an obligation to make the deal permanent for £18m when his loan contract ends in the summer.

The Spaniard will reunite with compatriot Unai Emery having played under the Arsenal manager at Sevilla in 2015.

Denis Suarez has been identified as a major transfer target for the Gunners in this transfer window by Unai Emery alongside Sevilla midfielder Ever Banega but will have to pay his €20m release clause rather than a loan deal in the case of the Barcelona midfielder.

Arsenal Legend Delighted With Bid To Sign Wolves Skipper

Wolverhampton Wanderers captain Conor Coady is the latest defensive target to be linked with a transfer to Arsenal in this January transfer window.

The Arsenal interest in the Wolves defender has been backed by club legend Ian Wright who praised him for his performance in the Premier League clash between the two sides at the Emirates Stadium earlier in the season.

Conor Coady came through the ranks at Premier League table toppers Liverpool before then Reds boss Brendan Rodgers sanctioned his sale to Huddersfield Town in 2014 immediately after he had finished a loan spell at Championship club Sheffield United.

He struggled in the Wolverhampton Wanderers midfield before club manager Nuno Espirito Santo changed his position to a centre back.

The English defender has been the focal point of a three-man defence for Wolverhampton Wanderers since the start of last season when the Midlands club won promotion to the Premier League.

He has been a key performer for Wolves on their return to the Premier League leading to calls about a possible invitation to the England national team setup under manager Gareth Southgate.

Coady has also been linked with a move back to Liverpool who have had injury problems with their central defenders in recent weeks.
