    AUBA THE TOP

    Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has been labelled as the Premier League's worst summer signing.

    Chris Sutton told the 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.”

    NIC ME UP

    Nicolas Pepe has confessed to being 'frustrated' by his slow second season at Arsenal.

    He told Canal+ via Metro: “My goal is to play more, have a little more playing time.

    “A player who plays is happy. For me, I would like to play a little more to find a smile again.

    “[Arteta] wants me to be 100 per cent focused during the 90 minutes of the match.

    “Afterwards, I see during training that I will be a substitute the following weekend.

    “But the coach speaks to me, he also has assistants who are there for that.

    “But it is frustrating for any player to be on the bench.

    “The coach makes his choices. It’s up to me to show him that I deserve that chance.”

    GUNNERS LATEST

    It's not been the best of weeks for Arsenal – but at least they can take stock over the international break after a shocking result against Aston Villa.

    On the transfer front, Arsenal are reportedly interested in signing young Brazilian striker Brenner – but face a transfer battle with FIVE other clubs.

    Calcio Mercato claims the Sao Paulo star, 20, has caught Mikel Arteta’s eye with some stunning performances this season.

    He has scored 15 goals and assisted a further three in just 25 games.

    While Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has been labelled as the Premier League's worst summer signing.

    Chris Sutton told the 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.”

    And finally, Gunners legend Tony Adams claims Arsenal blew the chance to sign Jude Bellingham because Sporting Director Edu didn’t have a clue who he was.

    Speaking on Sky Sports’ The Football Show, Adams said: “I think it got lost, this one, in the transition of the chief scout at Arsenal going out.

    “He was spotted very early on, not by me, by the Arsenal recruitment office. The chief scout was absolutely bowled over by him and the great prospect that he is.

    “He had more or less done the deal, but at that moment the new sporting director Edu came in from Brazil and had no European experience and no UK experience.

    I think it got lost in the transition, Edu didn’t know nothing about this player.”
