Alan Shearer feels striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang can’t be happy playing for an underperforming Arsenal side.

The Gunners’ 3-1 victory at West Ham United on Monday night ended a run of seven Premier League games without win but they are seven points adrift of fourth placed Chelsea.

Aubameyang netted his 13th goal in all competitions against the Hammers to take his tally to 54 in just 84 matches for the club.

And Shearer, who’s the Premier League’s record goalscorer with 260 goals, says the Gabon international’s future at the Emirates must be uncertain.

Aubameyang has been lethal in front of goal again this term.

It is just unbelievable. He is a top goal scorer. He must be going mad in that team,” the Newcastle United and England legend told Optus Sport.

I know he’s still getting goals, but he must be so frustrated. The problem Arsenal have got with him now is that he’s got 18 months left on his contract, they’re going to have to make a decision about him.

Because if he’s not going to sign that contract they would have to sell him in the summer.

Freddie Ljungberg is currently in interim charge of the team following the sacking of Unai Emery at the end of November but the win at West Ham was his first at the helm.

Next up for the Swedish coach and his side is an away Europa League match against Standard Liege on Thursday before a home Premier League match against Manchester City three days later.
