Gabon FA president urges Aubameyang to join a club more ambitious than Arsenal

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang remains one of the best attackers in the Premier League at the moment. The former Borussia Dortmund man was the second-highest goal-scorer in the competition before the suspension of all football in England.

He has just over a season left on his current deal and the club is struggling to tie him down to a new deal. However, there are several teams also looking to sign him on a cheap in the summer.

Barcelona and Inter Milan are two high profile teams that want to sign him and he seems to also want a move away from the Emirates and such a move would be supported by his country’s FA chief, Pierre Alain Mounguengui.

Mounguengui claimed that the attacker needs to make a move to a more ambitious club although he couldn’t say that Arsenal isn’t an ambitious team.

He 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.

“So, if Pierre could secure a contract with a more ambitious club, he would definitely find his place there.

“On an individual level, we all consider him to be among the best players in the world.

“But the advice I give him to is continue to work and to attract the attention of the biggest clubs and the most ambitious clubs.”

It is a damning indictment of Arsenal that some in the game do not see the club as ambitious enough for the very top players.

    Just want to know, how many trophies has he won with the Gabonese national team. Wow!!! such hypocrisy from such leaders who have achieved far less is beyond comprehension.

    This lockdown makes this man going crazy – He got time to think of Arsenal unlike his own country. Gabon hasn’t won anything instead he’s talking rubbish about Arsenal . I can suggest him to mind his own business rather talking rubbish . It seems as if he’s getting bored as there’s nothing he can do .
