The 28-year-old became the north London side’s record signing back in January when the Gunners parted with a big-money transfer fee to bring him to the club from Borussia Dortmund.
Aubameyang has scored two goals for the north London side since his move to The Emirates and he will be hoping to hold down a regular spot in the first team between now and the end of the season.
However, Arsenal legend Wright feels that the Gunners only moved to land the striker after the rest of Europe’s top clubs ended their interest in signing him.
Speaking to BBC Radio 5 live, Wright said: “Aubmeyang was someone everyone wanted to sign a few years ago. That went cold, [then] we signed him.”
He added: “Aubameyang, Mkhitaryan and Ozil are excellent players. Ozil didn’t play to the calibre we expect him to. Since he signed his deal, I haven’t seen him play any kind of football yet.”
Aubameyang will be hoping to help Arsenal return to winning ways on Thursday night when the Gunners travel to AC Milan for the first leg of their Europa League last 16 clash against the Italian side.
With Arsenal now 13 points adrift of the top four, their best hope of qualifying for next season’s Champions League will probably be winning the Europa League this season, as Manchester United did last term.
The Gunners have not won the Premier League since their famous unbeaten triumph in the 2003-04 campaign.
