Pundit insists Aubameyang still has goals to score for Arsenal

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has been the highest-scoring player at Arsenal since he joined the club and that is one reason they made him captain.

However, his off-field attitude has cost him that role and they have even banished him from the first team.

Naturally, when that happens to a player, it is hard for them to come back into the team.

Arsenal will probably be open to cashing in on the former Borussia Dortmund man now, but former footballer and BBC pundit, Garth Crooks believes the striker still has goals in him to score for the Gunners.

He named Gabriel Martinelli on his BBC Team of the Week and urges Mikel Arteta to sort out his problem with the Gabon star because the striker can still help Arsenal.

He said: “Whatever is causing Aubameyang to misbehave it would be in Arteta’s interest to fix it. There are still plenty of goals in the Gabon striker and they are always a good reason to persevere with any player that can produce them on a regular basis – and he can.”

Just Arsenal Opinion

Aubameyang has been helpful to Arsenal in recent seasons and he still has the quality to be a key player for the club.

But in the last few months, he has been more trouble than a solution to the club as he struggles to score goals and he also cannot keep out of trouble.

At 32, he shouldn’t be having these kinds of issues because he is experienced enough to know the consequences.

  1. I think the quality and the talent is still there, form is temporary but class is permanent. But the problem is something is disturbing him, the mind is not there. Arteta has to sit down, talk to him in detail and sort out the problem. He still has a lot to offer to Arsenal and we will need his goals to make it to the top 4 by the end of the season.

  2. It looks like most people still believe in him, the thing is does he believes in his ability to change things around. What has been said is talk inexpensive, action thrives on?
