Aubameyang eyes legendary status at Arsenal

Arsenal’s forward Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is keen on etching his name into the club’s history books.

 

Aubameyang has notched in 41 goals in 64 appearances across all competitions in a season-and-a-half as a Gunner, with 32 coming in just 49 Premier League appearances.

The former Dortmund ace also picked up the Golden Boot award for the 2018-19 season with 22 league strikes, sharing the title with Liverpool duo Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane.

Having racked up those figures faster than Arsenal great Thierry Henry, the 29-year-old is motivated to leave his mark at the Emirates Stadium long after he departs.

Arsenal legend Lauren slams Ozil: “Something is very wrong”

Arsenal legend Lauren has called on Mesut Ozil to finally fulfil his potential following another abysmal season for the player.

“It was challenging for me to come to Arsenal and impose myself,” Aubameyang told RMC Sport.

“Now I want my name to become a legend there.”

The forward also opened up on his relationship with fellow striker Alexandre Lacazette, with the pair having struck up a remarkable understanding to form a fearsome strike partnership.

“[Lacazette and I] share the same view of football,” he added. “We joke and like to laugh. On the pitch, all it takes is a look. It’s natural. One will find the other and the other will do the same just as much.”

Aubameyang will be aiming to fire the Gunners to Europa League glory when they face Chelsea in Baku on May 29.
