TRANSFERS: Arsenal star urged to leave ‘failing’ club

Arsenal star Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has been urged to leave the Gunners in favour of a more ‘ambitious’ club by the President of the Gabonese Football Association.

Last season, Aubameyang finished as the Premier League’s joint top scorer with 22 goals in the division. His contract is set to expire at the end of the 2020/21 season.

“Right now, he’s at Arsenal, and he’s won nothing here, so it’s a collective failing,” Pierre Alain Mounguengui told ESPN.

“I don’t want to say that Arsenal aren’t ambitious, but Arsenal don’t have ambitions as high as some other clubs as far as Europe is concerned.”

Mounguengui went on to suggest that Aubameyang should look to find himself a contract with a more ‘ambitious’ club.

Arsenal not ambitious enough for Auba

He said: “If Pierre could secure a contract with a more ambitious club, he’d definitely find his place there.”

“All Gabonese people see Aubameyang at this level, where he can now end his career at a major club and, above all, beyond individual trophies, to bring home a major competition.”

Given that he’s scored 20 goals in all competitions this season for the Gunners, he is pretty indispensable to the team.

He’s the top scorer for the north Londoners this season with double the amount of goals than the player behind him, Gabriel Martinelli with 10.

Aubameyang has been a part of two major cup finals as an Arsenal player, losing both the EFL Cup final to Manchester City and the Europa League final to Chelsea.

As of yet, he has not won a trophy with the North London club. Should Aubameyang leave Arsenal when his contract runs out, or even before? Join the discussion on our Facebook.
