Aubameyang, with his pace on the shoulder, can punish teams.‘We can give players the possibility to close down, win the ball in that last third, then give it to the strikers. That is ideal.’ Liverpool’s front three terrifies defences and Wright hopes Arsenal’s trio can do the same (Getty)Pepe was chased by a host of huge clubs across Europe before putting pen to paper at the Emirates and Wright is delighted that Arsenal’s existing players were able to lure him to north London.Wright added: ‘Before Pepe got there, you saw Aubameyang and Lacazette welcoming him on social media by doing his salute celebration. When you see that you know they are letting him know that he is already loved.‘They can’t wait for him to be there. All he needs now is games. Even the other day, he gets on the ball and it’s just exciting. He does a couple of moves and you think, “Ooh, this is awesome”.‘They want the three of them to be an item. Not the two of them. It’s a three-pronged attack with pace, and something different in each of those players.’Which front three is better?Aubameyang, Lacazette, Pepe0%Salah, Mane, Firmino0%Share your resultsShare your resultsTweet your resultsMore: Arsenal FCArsenal flop Denis Suarez delivers verdict on Thomas Partey and Lucas Torreira movesThomas Partey debut? Ian Wright picks his Arsenal starting XI vs Manchester CityArsene Wenger explains why Mikel Arteta is ‘lucky’ to be managing Arsenal Advertisement Wright loves the idea of all three big-money attackers in the starting XI for Arsenal (Picture: Getty)Ian Wright is very excited by the prospect of the Arsenal front line this season and reckons their three different skill sets could see them emulate Liverpool’s Champions League-winning front three.Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino powered Liverpool to their highest ever top-flight points total and a sixth European title last season, each providing a different type of threat to defences.Arsenal have mostly had a two-pronged attack with the big-money signings of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette leading the line.
Also, in action was 31-year-old Alessandro Riguccini, who blew away Ivan Alvarez (28-10-1, 18 KOs) with a first-round TKO in a spectacular performance. Riguccini improved his record to 23-0 with 19 wins via knockout to claim the interim WBC silver welterweight title when he unleashed a barrage of punches, pinning Alvarez in the corner and forcing him to take a knee. But that didn’t save the Mexican fighter, as Riguccini subsequently came back at him to finish the job by dropping him two more times before the referee stopped the fight.
