Don't compare Arsenal star Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to Alexis Sanchez - Ian Wright

The Gunners rounded off their winter business by bringing in the Gabon worldwide from Borussia Dortmund on deadline day, nine days after Mkhitaryan arrived from Manchester United in a swap deal.

"He'll run into major problems". Following Dembele and Aubameyang, there is now an overriding interest for the club - we need to get a better structure into our squad again. The next player who tries to put us under pressure by withholding performances or even going on strike will not get a pass and will instead sit in the stands.

The striker, who scored on his Gunners debut, a 5-1 drubbing of Everton on Saturday, has explained that the opportunity to reunite with Mkhitaryan is what convinced him to sign for Arsenal.

Aubameyang and Mkhitaryan both signed for Borussia Dortmund in July 2013 and were teammates for three years before the latter moved to Manchester United.

"Maybe it wasn't the best way but everyone knows that Auba is insane - and yes, I'm a insane boy!" But I wanted to move last summer, but it didn't work and now it had to be.

Ousmane Dembele employed a similar tactic to seal his move to Barcelona, and Watzke told FAZ: 'On Thursday, I laid it on the line for the squad - the next player who does something like that will fail miserably.

"As a player you get on with it, and if you read any negative things in the paper every day, then it's a burden".

"But we have seen that Arsenal also can lose against a Swansea, although a confident Swansea, so you can't really call it".
