Aubameyang will struggle at Arsenal – Carragher

Former Liverpool defender, Jamie Carragher believes  Arsenal’s new signing Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang will struggle to thrive at the Emirates Stadium.

Aubameyang, 28, joined Arsenal from German club, Borussia Dortmund on transfer deadline day but Carragher has a different expectation of the striker, as he believes he might struggle to form a partnership with Alexander Lacazette.

“I can’t help thinking that Aubameyang coming in, there’s no way him and Lacazette can form a partnership, I just don’t see that at all.  They both look like penalty box strikers.”

“I think Aubameyang’s goals for Dortmund, only one was outside the box. That’s not a problem, but it shows he’s a penalty box centre-forward, he’s exactly like Lacazette.

“I could actually see Lacazette moving on at the end of the season, but big signings. Going forward for Arsenal, you still worry that the problems at the other end of the pitch have still not been rectified.”
