Arsenal striker Lacazette: Aubameyang far more than just a goalscorer

Arsenal forward Alexandre Lacazette insists Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is far more than just a goalscorer.

The Gabon international has an incredible 60 goals from 95 appearances with the Gunners.

But Lacazette thinks the 30-year-old should also be recognised for his defensive work.

"I think people should talk more about Auba and what he is doing in the game because he is more than a goalscorer," Lacazette said.

"He is working a lot for the team defensively and making space for the other striker - Eddie or me - and I think if we start to win more trophies, people will talk more about what he is doing for the team.

"He's one of the best or maybe he's been the best player this season for Arsenal. Obviously I hope he's going to stay."
