Aubameyang, Lacazette friendship coming to an end?


There are fears that the much cherished friendship between Aubameyang and Lacazette is already nearing its end.

Both players have enjoyed amazing relationship both on and off the pitch. They are best of friends and that has helped them work perfectly in the Arsenal attack.

Unfortunately, the closeness between them is being threatened by the fact that they could be separated in the coming summer transfer window if reports of their future at the Emirates Stadium is anything to go by.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has got 12 months left to the end of his current Arsenal deal and efforts for talks of a new deal might be far from being fruitful.

The Gabon international has demanded a 3 years contract and a wage of £250,000-a-week. It is already assumed that the Gunners will not be able to meet up and will decide to cash in on him this summer to avoid losing him for free.

A similar case is associated with Lacazette as he is reportedly involved in a proposed swap deal to Atletico Madrid for Thomas Partey in the summer window.

Arsenal are keen on the Ghanaian midfielder and are ready to hand over the France International who is needed in Spain.

Should the above happen, both players will be forced to go separate ways and that might affect their friendship which obviously helped their performance at the Emirates Stadium.
