Gabon international Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has been hailed as a 'top-class striker' by David Wagner.
The lethal striker is close to a move to English Premier League giants Arsenal from German Bundesliga side Borussia Dortmund after agreeing in principle with the Gunners.
Wagner told Sky Sports that he has no doubt regarding the 28-year-old's goalscoring ability.
"He will be top class. He is a top-class striker, goalscorer - he has everything," Wagner told Sky Sports.
Wagner is a former Dortmund assistant manager and he’s now in charge of English Premier League side Huddersfield Town.
"The club who will sign him can be very happy for sure. I really like this player."
Aubameyang, who is expected to complete his move to Arsenal this week, has hit the back of the net 13 times in 16 Bundesliga matches for Dortmund this season.
Last season, the Gabon captain beat Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski to the Bundesliga Golden Boot award.
Aubameyang scored 31 goals, while Poland international Lewandowski netted 30 goals.
