Aubameyang is too good for Arsenal - Jamie Carragher

Aubameyang is too good for Arsenal - Jamie Carragher

Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher as commented on the situation between Premier League side Arsenal and their star player Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

Aubameyang in recent weeks has been linked with a move to Chelsea and other top European sides. As the former Borussia Dortmund man will look to the place where he can win trophies.

Jamie Carragher feels the situation is the same as when Liverpool was struggling and couldn't keep their star players [the likes of Luis Suarez and others]. He thinks Arsenal need to let the player go as he is too good for them now.

'It’s interesting because Liverpool were in the same situation as Arsenal towards the end of my career when you’re just missing out on the top-four,' Carragher said on Sky Sports

'It’s okay to have rules like "we never let a player go on a Bosman ruling", but if you’re Mikel Arteta, have you got more chance of getting back in the Champions League if he stays?

'That's the decision they have to make. At this stage, there’s no doubt that Aubameyang is too good for Arsenal. We had that at Liverpool with Luis Suarez and certain other players.

'You’re desperate to keep hold of them because you want to build around those players. If they go you feel like you’re starting all over again.'

'That will be a decision for them. It’s okay saying "if he doesn’t want to be there, let him go". But it’s not as easy when you’re at that club and you have a player of such star quality who will be there or thereabouts for the Golden Boot every year.

'It’s not easy to find goalscorers so I’d keep Aubameyang and see what you can do, see if you can bring players in around him and hopefully have a successful season and convince him to stay over the next 12 months.'

'If not, it still gives Arsenal a greater chance of getting back in the top-four and that’s where they need to be.'
