As far as Arsenal fans are concerned, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is one of the best strikers in the Premier League and one of the best still competing in the Europa League. In the next round of Europe, the Gabonese frontman will be up against Arkadiusz Milik and Calcio Mercato have claimed that the Polish frontman is better than Auba.

The Arsenal striker will be absolutely loving life at the moment. The Gunners have enjoyed watching the electric ex-Borussia Dortmund man score goals aplenty at The Emirates in his first full season, as he has a return of 22 goals and seven assists in his 40 outings this season. That’s a much healthier return than that of the man he’s up against, as Milik has 19 in 36 games and fewer assists that Auba too.
In Truth, Milik’s return looks good, but factor in that his goals have come whilst he’s been playing as the main frontman for Napoli in an easier league in the Serie A and all of a sudden Auba’s achievement looks much better. The 29-year-old has been competing with Alexandre Lacazette for the starting role at Arsenal and is often shoehorned out wide. There’s not even a guarantee that he’ll be starting when they face Napoli, and even from the bench, he’s much better than Milik.

The Gunners absolutely love their Gabonese frontman and are desperate for him to prove that he’s head and shoulders above Milik when they face Napoli over two legs.
