Despite often cutting a sullen face even when he is celebrating, Aubameyang appears to be the only squad member able to make the Frenchman lighten up.

The duo now enjoys a unique relationship and a telepathic understanding both on and off the pitch - a thing that has not gone unnoticed among fans.

“Yeah it does feel telepathic), but sometimes it is wrong! Sometimes he goes left and I put the ball right. But normally we work a lot to be on the same wavelength. We want to be as perfect as possible," UK Mirror quoted Lacazette.

Lacazette however admits playing alongside Aubameyang is always a pleasure for him, but none of the two feels hurt when either is dropped to the bench.

“Of course, the coach knows we want to play together but of course he has to make a choice and we have to respect them. Playing with Auba is always a pleasure for me," he said.

The two emerged Arsenal's top scorers this season, with Lacazette bagging the club's Player of the Year Award as Aubameyang shared the Premier League's Golden Boot with Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah.

Meanwhile, the two will be hoping to help the Gunners win the Europa League final when they battle Chelsea on Wednesday, May 29.

They played a pivotal role in Arsenal's 2-0 win over the Blues back in January, blowing Maurizio Sarri's side away with intense performance.
