Today’s fluff is widely recyclable

On 19 goals for the season after scoring a brace against Everton yesterday, the feeling persists that Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang might be a little bit too good for Arsenal. Barcelona tried to sign him in January and are still believed to be interested in bringing him to the Camp Nou this summer, while Internazionale are also reported to be ready to offer him the Champions League football he feels he deserves.

“It’s right that big teams like him,” said Mikel Arteta, following his Arsenal side’s third win in a week. “Hopefully we can convince him this is right place to be. I think it’s been tough for him because he has big expectations. He wants to play in the biggest competitions and with the best players. We have to help him do that. He needs to feel fulfilled. He is our most important player and we will have to convince him to stay with us.”
