Alexandre Lacazette has hailed his relationship with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and says the pair are like brothers.
Lacazette scored twice as Arsenal thrashed Fulham 5-1 at the weekend to extend their winning run to nine matches, while Aubameyang came off the bench to net a brace as well.
Lacazette joined Arsenal last summer for a then-club record fee before that amount was eclipsed in January as fellow forward Aubameyang came in from Borussia Dortmund.
The pair have clicked on and off the pitch, Aubameyang now having scored 16 goals in his first 23 appearances – a better start to life at Arsenal than Thierry Henry.

“It is good,” Lacazette said of his relationship with Aubameyang. “He is like my brother, every day we talk, we love to work together and today in front of the goal and we score, for us, two goals, which is good.
“It is hard to compare (Aubameyang’s record) with Thierry because he came younger and Auba is at the top of his career but I hope Auba scores as many goals to help us win something.”
