Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta has admitted that his biggest concern at the club is Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang lack of goals.
Aubameyang lack of goals continues as he failed to find the back of the net in Arsenal’s 2-1 loss to Wolverhampton on Sunday night.
The Gabonese International enjoyed an impressive form last season netting 22 goals in the premier league. But has only managed a goal in open play in ten matches in the 2020/21 premier league season so far.
He has struggled for form since signing a new deal worth £350,000-per-week in September
Areteta has admitted the forward lack of goal is his biggest challenge at the moment.
When asked if he was worried, Arteta said: “I think we all are because the main goalscorer of the club at the moment isn’t scoring goals, so my biggest concern is how to help him more to score goals because we need his goals.
“How important Auba has been for this club in the last two years and how the goal sheet has been shared among the squad tells you his importance.
“He needs to be scoring goals if we want to be successful.
The Gunners have lost five of their ten opening games this season being one of their worst starts since 1981.
Arsenal will host Rapid Vienna at the Emirates Stadium in the Europa league cup clash on Thursday as they hope to return to winning ways.
