Arsenal’s Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang needs to “secure a contract with a more ambitious club,” says the president of the Gabon Football Association.
Arsenal striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang won the premier league golden boot last season alongside Liverpool duo Mohammad Salah and Sadio Mane with 22 goals each.
The striker contract with the gunners is set to expire at the end of 2020-21 Summer of the season, with Inter Milan and Barcelona showing interest in the Gaboness.
“I don’t want to say that Arsenal aren’t ambitious, but Arsenal don’t have ambitions as high as some other clubs as far as Europe is concerned.”Mounguengui told ESPN.
“If Pierre could secure a contract with a more ambitious club, he’d definitely find his place there,” Mounguengui added.
The 30-year-old has featured in two finals since joining the gunners losing in each, 2018 Carabao Cup and Europa League lost to Chelsea in 2019.
“All Gabonese people see Aubameyang at this level, where he can now end his career at a major club and, above all, beyond individual trophies, to bring home a major competition.”
“Auba has the habit of saying that if club honours could come, that wouldn’t be bad, but that he could also settle for the personal accolades he’s won. As I said, he’s a world-class player.”He concluded
Aubameyang joined Arsenal from Borussia Dortmund for a fee of £56m, he has scored 17 goals in this season campaign before the premier league was suspended due to the coronavirus pandemic.
