Gary Neville believes Arsenal manager – Arsene Wenger “has got some big challenges” on his hands after signing Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.
The Gunners signed the Gabon international on deadline day, parting with £56million to land the striker. Henrik Mkhitaryan had earlier joined in a swap deal with Manchester United as Alexis Sanchez left for Old Trafford.

French striker Alexander Lacazette, a £52m capture from Lyon last summer, has started ‘finding his feet’ in the Premier league, while Mesut Ozil has now extended his Arsenal contract.

And now, Manchester United legend Neville thinks Arsene Wenger has got a huge problem to deal with.

Speaking on the prospect of fielding Aubameyang, Lacazette, Ozil and Mkhitaryan at the same time, Neville allayed his fears.

“Those four are so attacking I can’t think of a defensive mind among them,” said the former Red Devils defender on Sky Sports.

“I watched Mkhitaryan at United, he doesn’t defend.
“Ozil, when he wants to he can, but he doesn’t really want to put it in defensively. They’re going to leave huge spaces.

“The situation poses Wenger a problem he will have to try and resolve on the training pitch.

“That is the problem – how do you fit all four in the same team?
“I’m not quite sure that will happen. It doesn’t look like a natural fit, so Arsene Wenger has got some big challenges on the training field to make those four into a unit that works.”
