Chelsea urged to sign prolific African attacker from London rivals

Chelsea hero Alan Hudson has stated that he would put money on the West London club claiming the Premier League trophy if they had Gabon international forward Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang up front alongside with Timo Werner.

The Gunners front-man had a superb game for the North London club as they beat Fulham 3-0 on the opening day of the new campaign, following on from some world class form last season as well.

Aubameyang was key to the Gunners success in the FA Cup and the Community Shield, founding back of the net five times in his last three games at Wembley.

The Gabon international is certainly one of the top forwards in the world at the moment, and Hudson has been a huge fan and would love to see him with his former club Chelsea.

Hudson, best known for his time at West London club, however, who also had a stint at the North London club, spoke to the English newspapers about how Aubameyang would immediately strengthen the Blues starting XI, whilst also exploring how he and Alexandre Lacazette might have a better time at the Emirates Stadium in the nearby future.

“Aubameyang is a gem. Quality. If Chelsea had him up front with Werner my money would be on the Blues winning the title,” Hudson said.

“The Arsenal striker has that wonderful ability, not to just score goals, but SMILE.

“His goal against Fulham was like playing in a Friday morning 5-a-side match – cool, calm and collected, which is a very rare ability when you see so many multi-millionaire footballers panic when they see the whites of the post.

“This fella is the real deal and with Lacazette playing his part – almost like ‘Morecambe and Wise’ – they seem to enjoy playing together and read one another … these two they are their two biggest assets.

“I don’t think we have seen the best of Lacazette because Arsenal are still wanting in midfield. Once they have that in place I think the front two will flourish.”
