Arsenal striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has not been in goal scoring form, a development that has affected the North London outfit as they lost their last two Premier League games against Man City and Leicester City.
This has raised concerns amongst fans and analysts as he the Gabon International has been marked to lift the Gunners team this season with his goals, having started on a good note by winning the Community Shield for the club with his goals.
However, the solution for Arsenal has been revealed Mail online Columnist, Jordan Seaward as he wrote that other players must step up now to help the club so as to stop the overreliance on the former Borussia Dortmund forward for goals.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is Arsenal’s highest goalscorer since he joined the club in January 2018 and he has been consistent which warmed him a new and improved deal at the Emirates Stadium.

Jordan Seaward stated that the North London outfit have other attackers in the team like Alexandre Lacazette, Nicolas Pepe, and Willian stressing that they have to rise the occasion to deliver goals for the club if they must save the season.
“Arsenal cannot continue to be over-reliant on Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.
“When he is on song, they need not worry, but when he is in a rough path – as he is right now – there needs to be someone else they can turn to” he wrote.
He noted that Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang must walk through a difficult time and must be helped by his teammate to overcome in a good time.
Meanwhile, critics have lamented the fact that the Gabon International went quiet with goalscoring as soon as he was handed the new deal at the start of the season. He is now one of the highest paid players at the club.
Manager Mikel Arteta has backed the former Borussia Dortmund to return to his best as quickly as possible because of the need to start winning again.
Concerns over Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s form have been motivated by Arsenal’s poor form from the last two Premier League games.
