Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is not an Alexis Sanchez clone and should be left to do what he does best, according to Ian Wright.
The Gunners saw their 2016-17 top goal scorer left them for Manchester United and landed Henrikh Mkhitaryan as an exchange during the January transfer window.
Arsene Wenger, however, took Aubameyang for £55 million to replace Sanchez.
Wright says that the 28-year-old should use his predatory instincts instead of replicating the work rate of Sanchez.
“It’s been mentioned about Aubameyang not having enough touches in matches,” Wright said.
“He can get away with that.
“If he stays right at the top there and let him get on with it, then why do you want touches when you’ve got [Mesut] Ozil, Mkhitaryan and all those players?
“You can stay on the edge and not touch it.
“If Arsenal can play to his strengths, he’s that kind of player who could have four touches and score four goals.”
Wenger will be hoping that his predictions are right. Aubameyang’s classy finish on his debut against Everton proves that he will bring more in the future games with the club.
