Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has told Unai Emery that he is happy to play on the left wing if Alexandre Lacazette is selected as a central striker.

Emery has faced a dilemma ahead of the new season with both Aubameyang and Lacazette competing for the role as Arsenals spearhead in attack.

Aubameyang started as the central striker in the 2-0 defeat to Manchester City on Sunday but his role changed when Lacazette replaced Aaron Ramsey in the second half.

When asked about his relationship with Lacazette, Aubameyang told ESPN: We really get on well.

There is a spark between us when we are both on the pitch together.

We look for each other, we saw it [on Sunday] against City when he came on.

I dont mind playing on the left if Laca is in the centre.

We both want to do our best for the team.

Aubameyang has also called for patience from Arsenal fans as the players adapt to Emerys playing style.

We still need some time to adapt to the new manager and to integrate the new players, said Aubameyang.

It is hard to test ourselves in a first game like this against City because they are so strong.

We have to stay positive, work on the things we did well and improve on the rest.

We will have a better idea next weekend after the Chelsea game.

The message of the new coach is all about showing character, to put a lot of intensity, play high up the pitch and implement a big pressing.

Thats the style we will play this season.
