Last season Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang was joint top goalscorer with Liverpool duo Sadio Mane and Mo Salah and that was in an Arsenal team that seriously underperformed. Imagine how much better he will do this season with new signings Dani Ceballos and Nicolas Pepe providing him with quality service.
Aubameyang is a goal-scoring machine, he has a very impressive track record, not just with Arsenal but also with his former club, Borussia Dortmund, in fact, he was Bundesliga Top Goalscorer in 2016–17.
The Arsenal hitman is certainly not a one-season wonder in front of the goal, if we go back over his career we can see that wherever he has played he has been prolific.
Auba started his senior career off at Italian Serie A side AC Milan back in 2007 but never made the first team and was loaned out to a variety of French Ligue 1 sides before finally securing a move to St Etienne in 2012 and that is when his career really took off.
At St Etienne in 97 appearances, he scored 41 goals and that saw him rewarded with a transfer to German giants Dortmund for the start of the 2013–14 season.
Aubameyang spent four and a half-seasons in Germany where his goal-scoring exploits took on another dimension scoring a mighty 141 goals in just 213 games with the 2016–17 season being the most impressive when he found the back of the net on no fewer than 40 occasions from 46 games. However you dress that up it is truly an outstanding return.
Normally a player needs a little time to bed in when joining a new league, especially the English Premier League but not Aubameyang, he needed no time at all, winning the Golden Boot in his first full season.
That season for Arsenal was in a team lacking players that could provide him with a constant stream of assists as an example both Mo Salah and Sadio Mane played in a Liverpool team that scored 89 goals compared to the 73 goals managed by the Gunners.
Now that he is in a team that has been strengthened, Aubameyang has a fantastic opportunity to improve on the 22 goal tally from last season and that makes him a solid pick to be the 2019/20 Golden Boot winner.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is one of the best strikers in world football, he plays for a team fighting for a top-four spot and is now backed up by an abundance of great talent, this season could be one of his best to date.
