Sutton slams Arsenal captain Aubameyang: Worst summer signing of season!

Premier League title winner Chris Sutton has slammed the work of Arsenal captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang since signing his new contract.

The Gabonese striker opted to snub a move away in favour of committing his future to Arsenal on a new three-year deal.

But since then Arsenal's captain has struggled to produce his best form, with his latest showing against Aston Villa of particular concern.

Sutton told the Daily Mail: "The worst? We were all told that Arsenal tying down Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang would be like a new signing and, after a lot of hullabaloo, he put pen to paper.

"Since then, he's scored once from the spot.

"If fans were at stadiums, he wouldn't exactly have had them on the edge of their seats."
