Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has revealed that he moved to Arsenal under the assumption that Arsene Wenger would be continuing as Gunners boss.

The Gabon international moved to Arsenal in a £52m club record deal from Bundesliga side Borussia Dortmund in the January transfer window.

Aubameyang has scored 10 goals in 14 games in the Premier League since his move in January to make a promising start to his Arsenal career.

The 28-year-old netted four goals less than summer signing Alexandre Lacazzette despite featuring in a mere 13 games in the Premier League.

Arsenal are on the lookout for a new manager after Wenger stood down as Gunners boss following a difficult 2017-18 Premier League season.

Speaking to the Evening Standard about Wenger’s decision to leave the Merseyside outfit, Aubameyang said:

“I thought he would be at Arsenal for years.

“But this is life. This is football. Sometimes you never know. But I was happy to play for him. I learned a lot in not a lot of time to work with him. I am happy to be here.

“Yesterday was important for us because it was the last game for the boss. It was important to win this game for him. It was special.”

Arsenal lost 2-1 to Spanish side Atletico Madrid in the Europa League semi-finals to miss out on a potential European title.

The Gunners suffered a resounding 3-0 defeat by Manchester City in the League Cup final at Wembley earlier this year.

The north London side signed Aubameyang and his former Borussia Dortmund team-mate Henrikh Mkhitaryan in the January transfer window to bolster their squad.

Arsenal haven’t won the Premier League title since 2003-04.
