Arsenal legend Thierry Henry has said that he will not hold it against Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang if he decides to leave the club.
Aubameyang, who has netted 17 times in the Premier League this season, has only one year left on his contract.
Speaking to Skysport, Arsenal’s all-time top scorer Henry, said: “Everybody will do what they have to do. How am I going to tell someone to stay when I left?
“As an Arsenal fan, you want him to stay, but as a football player, he will assess the situation with his family, with his dad, who I know also, and will see what’s the best for them.
“I don’t know what’s in his head and where he wants to go, but all I know is that we are definitely going to miss his goals if he does leave. He does score goals and if you take the goals of Aubameyang away, it’s a tough one.”
Recently, it has been rumoured that the Gabon international will be leaving Arsenal with many European clubs salivating for his signature.
The former Borussia Dortmund star’s contract at Arsenal is expected to expire at the end of next season.
Aubameyang joined Bundesliga club Borussia Dortmund in 2013, where finished as the league’s top goalscorer in the 2016/2017 season. He also became the club’s sixth all-time top goalscorer.
In 2018, Aubameyang signed for English team Arsenal in a deal worth €64 million, making him the most expensive Gabonese player of all time.
In his first full season in England, he won the EPL Golden Boot.
Aubameyang is considered to be one of the best strikers in the world, known for his pace, finishing, and off-the-ball movement.
