aubameyang

Arsenal has been too reliant on Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang for goals, and that is one reason why everyone is panicking now that he wants to leave.

This is one of the worst positions any team can put themselves in and Arsenal has to learn from the situation.

Teams like Chelsea, Barcelona, Man Utd and Real Madrid have all been touted as possible destinations for the 30-year-old.

Aubameyang is a great goal scorer and there is no doubt that we only signed him because we knew he would score the goals we needed and obviously, Mikel Arteta wants him to stay.

However, we got complacent relying only on the Gabon hitman to score all the goals. Every great team has had multiple goal scorers because one player can only score so many goals.

Even if we keep hold of him, what happens if he gets injured, suspended or suffers a long goal drought?

Therefore, I think that we have to get goals from other parts of the team.

Goals are scored by full-backs, midfielders and even central defenders and Arsenal has to find another goal-scoring solution.

Mikel Arteta needs to give players like Granit Xhaka and Nicolas Pepe the confidence boost that they need to take more shots at goal.

Both players have been scoring goals in their career but they seem to have left it all to Aubameyang at Arsenal, but that has to change or else we will continue to suffer the loss of Aubameyang long after he has left us.
