Arsenal forward Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has spoken about his future after speculation linked him with Manchester United over the summer.
Aubameyang is in form as Arsenal prepare to face United in Monday’s Premier League clash at Old Trafford.
The 30-year-old has six goals from six games so far this season, having fire 22 in the Premier League last term to share the golden boot with Liverpool’s Mo Salah and Sadio Mane.
His red-hot form saw him mentioned as a possible striking addition for United over the summer as Red Devils boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer sought to improve his squad.
But the Gabon international has reassured fans he is going nowhere – and says it is time for the Gunners to start winning silverware again.
“I feel that we can change something in this club and we will try. Now it’s time to win trophies,” Aubameyang told Sky Sports.
“I’m sure we can do it and I am honestly happy to be here.
“I feel very good. For the next few years we want to play at a high level and win trophies. That’s what we are talking about.”
Meanwhile, former Arsenal defender Martin Keown said he would have given Aubameyang the armband rather than Granit Xhaka.
Gunners boss Unai Emery this week confirmed the midfielder is the new Arsenal captain.
Keown said: “This is really going to divide the fans. There are times when Xhaka goes missing in midfield, he’s given penalties away… he must be an incredible character off the pitch!
“It’s surprising, particularly how he was booed off the pitch less than a week ago.
“It’s a brave decision by the manager, he’s picked him every time he’s available so he clearly believes in the player, but I’m surprised, I must say.
“I would have gone for Aubameyang, he would have been a pretty good fit. It might have given him a little more extra responsibility. He’s doing fantastically well at the moment and he’s secure in the team, he’s a regular.”
