Aubameyang advised to ditch "failing" Arsenal by his FA president

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang should leave Arsenal after "a collective failing" at the Emirates Stadium, according to the president of his country's FA.

The Gabonese forward will be out of contract in the summer of 2021, and there have been suggestions that the Gunners could look to cash in on the 30-year-old this summer in order to avoid losing him on a free transfer next year.

Aubameyang has never played in the Champions League for the Gunners since joining from Borussia Dortmund in January 2018, and with Arsenal spending the current football hiatus stuck in mid-table there is only a slim chance that they could take a place at European football's top table next season.

And Gabon FA president Pierre Alain Mounguengui is urging him to quit the Emirates for a club playing more on his level.

"I don't want to say that Arsenal aren't ambitious, but Arsenal don't have ambitions as high as some other clubs as far as Europe is concerned," Mounguengui told ESPN.

"So if Pierre could secure a contract with a more ambitious club, he'd definitely find his place there.

"On an individual level, we all consider him to be among the best players in the world, but the advice I give to him is to continue to work and to attract the attention of the biggest clubs and the most ambitious clubs."
