The Gabon international moved to Arsenal in a club record £56m deal from Bundesliga giants Borussia Dortmund in the January transfer window.
Aubameyang’s arrival came as something as a surprise given his bad boy reputation during the end of his time at Borussia Dortmund.
His addition also appeared to push summer signing Alexandre Lacazette down the pecking order despite moving to Arsenal back in July 2017.
Aubameyang scored twice in Arsenal’s 3-0 win over Stoke City last weekend before he unselfishly handed the ball to Lacazette to get on the score sheet despite winning a penalty and being on a hat-trick.
The France international ended his goal drought from the spot and Aubameyang’s charitable act paid dividends after Lacazette scored twice in a 4-1 win over CSKA Moscow in the Europa League mid-week.
Former Gunners defender Keown was impressed with Aubameyang’s team ethic ahead of their home clash against Southampton in the Premier League this weekend.
“Aubameyang looked at the bigger picture,” Keown told the Daily Mail.
“He knew he wasn’t playing on Thursday and decided that Lacazette needed the confidence. I’m impressed. He had a bad-boy reputation from his time at Borussia Dortmund, but I can only judge from what I see on the pitch.”
The Gunners eased to a commanding 4-1 win over CSKA Moscow thanks to goals from Aaron Ramsey and Lacazette at the Emirates Stadium on Thursday night.
