Gabonese striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has come under huge criticism this season following his poor form and his future has recently been a huge topic of interest. The Arsenal striker is no longer to be as dangerous as he used to be in the opposition box.
When Aubameyang first signed for Arsenal from German Bundesliga giants Borussia Dortmund under Arsene Wenger, he was a very potent attacker and was scoring goals for fun. He began gaining comparisons to the club's former striker Thierry Henry in the process.
However, this season has been an entirely different one for him so far. The forward has struggled to score goals both in the Premier League and in the Europa League, as he continues to endure one of the worst seasons in his career. On several occasions, he has missed a couple of chances that went on to cost Arsenal matches and precious points, but his manager Mikel Arteta kept backing him those times.
However, as the poor form continued to longer, the need for him to be dropped started being talked about by fans and pundits. He has missed a couple of matches due to several personal reasons so far this season and has not played in as many games as he would have loved.
On some other occasions, he has had off-field problems with Arteta and has also been dropped to the bench during those periods. The move was backed by the Gunners' legend, Ian Wright, who claimed that no one should have the feeling that he is bigger than the club.
Recently, Auba contracted malaria and also missed Arsenal's game that weekend, but promised to return to the pitch as soon as possible. With his poor form on the pitch and his personal problems off it, Arteta could be willing to listen to offers for him.
