Arsenal legend: Aubameyang will tear up the Premier League this season

Arsenal legend Martin Keown is predicting big things for Gunners striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang in the Premier League this season.

Gabon international Aubameyang moved to the Emirates for a club record £56 million from Bundesliga side Borussia Dortmund during the January transfer window.

Despite arriving in North London not fully fit, he would score a hugely impressive 10 goals in just 13 appearances during the second half of last season.

Former Gunners defender Keown reckons Aubameyang could be one of the stars of the upcoming Premier League season, while he also feels that Arsenal have a big advantage over their top six rivals due to the fact Unai Emery has had most of his first-team squad together for the vast majority of pre-season.

“Aubameyang is going to be a player that I think could really tear up the Premier League this season so we’ll have to wait and see how that happens,” he told the Daily Star.

“It’s great because in a week’s time all the talking stops and we’ll see who’s the best.

“I think Arsenal will be well prepared because the manager’s had longer to work with his players than everybody else who’s been back to pre-season training.

“You look at the number of players that still aren’t back properly, Arsenal have had that advantage that the core of the players have been back now for four to five weeks.”
