Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is on course to win the Golden Boot for a second consecutive season.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is Arsenal’s most important player at the moment and it was right that the club made him captain after the Granit Xhaka meltdown.
He currently has just over a year left on his Arsenal deal and there are fears that he could be sold if he doesn’t sign a new deal in the summer.
Let us put aside talk of his future for a moment and focus on his prolific goal-scoring exploits.
Gary Neville made a case for Auba to be mentioned among the Premier League’s greatest strikers this past week and I believe that he is about right.
Aubameyang shared the Premier League’s Golden Boot with Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane last season and he is currently joint top of the list with Jamie Vardy on 17 goals.
Can he become the league’s top scorer again? My answer is an absolute yes!
Despite playing for an underperforming Arsenal side, Aubameyang has still scored 17 goals, Arsenal is now on the rise and he will be given the chance to score even more goals as the season progresses.
I believe that Aubameyang will outscore the likes of Jamie Vardy whose goals seems to have dried up, Sergio Aguero who shares the goalscoring responsibility with Gabriel Jesus, and Mohamed Salah who also shares Liverpool’s goals with Sadio Mane.
The Gabonese hit-man seems to enjoy his new role on the left side of the Arsenal attack and I back him to get up to ten more goals before the season ends.

Auba has always struggled when there is no service.He is not that guy who will dribble past everyone and score goals,no.He is a guy who makes line breaking runs and takes great positions and expect those around him to fimd him to score goals.He is a top top striker,there is no doubt in it.His conversion rate is superb.And now under MA he is doing the dirty work as well.This guy deserves the golden boot and for sure he will get it.CAPTAIN AUBA✌✌✌✌
It will be hard to keep him beyond this year though. He will look for his last pay day salary bump, be it us or somewhere else. We need to convince him to stay or get CL for any alternative to come to Arsenal. Given we have Martinelli and Eddie, I would stick to one striker(Auba or Werner) and clear out funds from Laca to invest in other areas.
Not many teams will give him a bigger salary if they also have to fork out 40 – 50 M in transfer fees for a 31 year old (in June).
We will likely offer more than 200 M PLUS bonuses and no one will give a 31-year old 300M, plus pay 40 – 50 M in transfer fees.
If he’s leaving it’s to play in a better team.
The way Auba is playing, it is sensational and he is taking the entire burden of Arsenal on his shoulders. At this rate he will outscore everybody in the Pl and win the Golden Boot. As far as keeping him and making him sign a new contract, it will depend on whether we make it to the CL through the PL or the EUL, and on the way MA convinces him that Arsenal FC is the best project for him at this point of time. We can sell some players to compensate for his new contract and hopefully a combination of these factors will keep him at Arsenal. He has said previously that he loves this Club and some efforts from Arsenal’s side will surely make him sign a new contract. He is worth every pound paid.
