The prolific Gabon striker rattled home 10 goals in just 13 league outings for the Gunners last term after his club record £56million arrival from Borussia Dortmund in January.

And Arsenal boss Emery is convinced that red-hot form can continue this season – with Aubameyang alongside Alexandre Lacazette and Mesut Ozil.

Asked if the livewire African will rival the likes of Harry Kane and Mo Sarah at the top of the goal charts, Emery’s response was both positive and emphatic.

“Yes. I want strikers in my team who have the possibilities to go for goal – and I want to give them more options to attack,” said the ex Paris Saint-Germain coach.

“I believe in the quality of these players – and that this combination will improve and get better together.”

Anyone thinking that sounds ominous for Danny Welbeck is wrong. Emery is full of praise for the England forward – especially his trademark versatility.

Stating Welbeck is staying, the Spanish supremo revealed: “Danny has multi-position possibilities – right winger, left winger, striker. And, yesterday, he worked with us at left back. His performance was good!

“I like this positive spirit to help. I’ve said to him I want the best performance in his career, with better quality and data – more goals, more assists.”
