Aubameyang joined Arsenal in January 2018 for around £ 56 million and has since scored 61 goals in all competitions. He was the top scorer in the league last season with 22 goals and 17 league goals in the current campaign. The 30-year contract expires at the end of next season.
“I don’t mean to say that Arsenal is not ambitious, but Arsenal do not have as high ambitions as some other clubs when it comes to Europe,” Mounguengui told ESPN. “So if Pierre could get a contract with a more ambitious club, he would definitely find his place there.
“On an individual level, we all consider him one of the best players in the world, but the advice I give him is to keep working and get the attention of the biggest and most ambitious clubs. “
Arsenal were ninth in the Premier League before the coronavirus pandemic suspended the football season. The club has not qualified for the Champions League since 2015-2016 and has lost two finals since Aubameyang’s arrival – the League Cup in 2018 and the Europa League last season.
“Aubameyang is a world class player but for him, or for anyone else in Europe who has not won a major honor, football is a collective sport,” said Mounguengui. “Currently he is at Arsenal and he has won nothing here. So it’s a collective failure. “
