Arsenal fans back Aubameyang for next season’s Golden Boot

Arsenal fans haven’t had a lot to get excited about this year.

In Arsene Wenger’s last season at the club Arsenal got hammered 3-0 in the League Cup final, were knocked out of the semi-finals of the Europa League, and until yesterday’s 1-0 win at Huddersfield the North London club hadn’t even picked up a single Premier League point away from home in the whole of 2018.

However the one saving grace of the Gunner’s miserable season has been the form of January signing, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang. The Gabon international was signed from Borrusia Dortmund for a club record fee – reportedly £60 million – on the deadline day of the January window.

The 28-year-old came to Arsenal with an excellent scoring record and a big reputation.

At Dortmund, he scored 98 league goals in 144 appearances and won last season’s Bundesliga golden boot award with 31 goals.

Despite Arsenal’s inconsistent form, Aubameyang has been a reliable performer for the North London outfit and Gunner’s fans can take solace from a disappointing campaign in the marksman’s scintillating form since moving to England.

Even though Aubameyang made his first Premier League appearance in February, the former Dortmund man was only 1 league goal behind Alvaro Morata and boasted the same amount of league assists as Eden Hazard.

Arsenal supporters are understandably excited to see what the £58.5 million rated player can do when he has the entire season. Here’s a selection of what’s been said on social media…
