ARSENAL striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang will challenge Harry Kane for the Premier League golden boot this season.
That’s according to Gunners legend Ray Parlour.
The Gabon international arrived at the Emirates in January and enjoyed a stunning start to his Arsenal career, netting 10 times in his first 14 matches.
Aubameyang is expected to lead the line for new boss Unai Emery this term, casting doubt over the playing opportunities for Alexandre Lacazette.
The 29-year-old won the Bundesliga golden boot three seasons in a row while at Borussia Dortmund.
And Parlour has backed Aubameyang to continue that tradition in his first full Premier League season.
“I was so impressed with what I saw last year that I think it will be him and Harry Kane competing for the golden boot.
“He has that incredible goalscoring instinct and he’ll get lots of opportunities with Ozil and Mkhitaryan feeding him.
“Aubameyang is a big character and has a lot of confidence which is key for a striker.
“It doesn’t affect him if he misses opportunity because he’s convinced he will score the next one.
“That’s the difference between Aubameyang and Lacazette.
“Lacazette looks frightened to miss and it affects his confidence, but he also has the quality to be an important player and I hope he comes good this season.”
