Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette would get into any team in the Premier League’s top six, says Arsenal legend Martin Keown.
The strikers have been prolific in Arsenal’s hunt for a top-four finish this season, scoring a combined total of 25 goals.
And Keown, who won 10 trophies during his 13-year spell with the Gunners, has been full of praise for the deadly duo.
He told the Daily Mail: “The team are still formidable going forward.
“Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette are good enough to grace any team in the Premier League’s top six.
“But the £100million spent to sign those players last season and hefty wages given to other star players has led to this situation (where Arsenal can’t afford to buy players this month).
“Unai Emery must look at his backline – where they are short at centre-half – and wish he could bring in reinforcements. After all, Arsenal are only three points off the top four.
“Emery is finding that decisions made before he arrived have left him with his hands tied.”
