Pierre Emerick-Aubameyang would be a good addition to the Arsenal team to fill Alexis Sanchez’s void, Tony Gale has claimed.

The Gunners are still facing uncertainty surrounding the future of Sanchez at The Emirates given the Chile international has less than six months remaining on his Arsenal contract.

The north London side could sell Sanchez in a cut-price deal in the summer, or the South American could leave for nothing next summer.

The 29-year-old scored 24 times in 38 games in the Premier League last term to finish as Arsenal’s leading goal-scorer in the English top flight last term.

Aubameyang, 28, has been regularly linked with a move to the Premier League over the past few seasons but a transfer has never materialised despite reported interest from Chelsea and Liverpool FC.

Former West Ham striker Gale believes Aubameyang will be a great signing for the FA Cup holders given the uncertainty surrounding Sanchez’s future.

“He’s a good player and can get in behind,” Gale told Sky Sports News.

“If you’re letting someone like Sanchez go… although he’s not a Sanchez-type player, he likes to get in behind more.

“He’s still only a young man as well, which is vital, because they like to sign them at a good age, Arsenal. That would be a good signing.”

Aubameyang has netted 141 goals in 212 games in all competitions during four seasons at Dortmund.

The Gabon international has earned a reputation as one of the most prolific strikers in European football in recent years.

Arsenal are in sixth place in the Premier League table.
