Matteo Guendouzi says Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is the ‘perfect’ foil for Arsenal’s midfield, pointing to the variety to the front-man’s game as his main asset.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is Premier League Top goalscorer at the half-way point, having netted 13 times as Mohamed Salah and Harry Kane trail behind on 12, and has been an increasingly important part of Unai Emery’s new-look Arsenal side.
And Guendouzi, who has himself become an important part of the team since arriving from Lorient in the summer, says the talismanic forward is a dream to play alongside, and the best striker in the league ahead of his contemporaries.
“He’s helping us a lot because he scores so much,” he told Sky Sports, ahead of Liverpool’s clash with Arsenal this weekend.
“For me he is the best striker in the Premier League this season, and if he keeps scoring as much in the second half of the season, I know we will finish really high in the table.
“As a midfielder it’s a pleasure to play with someone like him, it’s easy because he has so many qualities. He can run behind, he’s in the box in front of goal but he can also link up play and play with his back to his goal. For a midfielder this is perfect because he offers so many solutions.”
