Arsenal coach, Mikel Arteta, on Friday revealed that Chelsea’s target, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, deserves a good reception should he return to Emirates in the near future.
Arteta described Aubameyang as an exceptional player, adding that he did so much for Arsenal.
Aubameyang, who currently plays for Barcelona, has been linked with a move to Chelsea.
Speaking during his pre-match press conference ahead of Arsenal’s Premier League tie with Leicester City on Saturday, Arteta said: “Auba is an exceptional player. He did so much for us. I hope he gets a good reception (if he comes back) because I think he deserves that.
“He was our captain and I think we have to be grateful, very grateful as well, for what he did for this club.
“I hope he does because I think he deserves that. There are moments in life, there are moments in your career, and sometimes the trajectory or the objective of each individual is different to the clubs – and you have to respect that.”
