Arsenal legend, Martin Keown has described Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s return to the Premier League with Chelsea as a disaster for the Gunners.
Aubamayang returned to the English top flight on transfer deadline day from Barcelona and could file out against West Ham on Saturday if fitness permits.
The Gabon international left Arsenal in January after he fell out with Manager, Mikel Arteta.
Keown believes the Gunners have now been left with eggs on their faces and is confident the Gabon international will solve one of the biggest issues affecting Chelsea’s current form.
He told talkSPORT: “I think he’s a top-class player. The 13 goals he scored for Barcelona were enough for him to secure Champions League football once more.
“He’s had one issue with Arteta throughout his career. In general he’s been pretty prolific in front of goal.
“He’s been an OK character to work with, Tuchel is saying that himself. Xavi said he was a gift from god when he turned up in Barcelona.
“I think Tuchel knows how to get the best from him they’ve got a special relationship. I hope they got some of that €12m that Barcelona is now getting for him. He was allowed to go there for free so that’s an even bigger disaster.
“I think he’s going to improve the goalscoring they definitely need a striker. He was quite prolific for Arsenal. This is a top goalscorer there’s no doubt about that.
‘You’ll have to ask him and he hasn’t given his account of what happened between him and the manager.
“It was personal. He says he’s got unfinished business and he’s here to score goals. I think he’ll be a man on a mission.”
