Arsenal head coach Unai Emery believes that Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has all the credentials to be the top scorer in the English Premier League this season.
The Gabon international is the top scorer in the league after 15 rounds of fixtures, having netted 10 goals for the Gunners this season.
Aubameyang shot to the top of the goalscoring charts with a brace against Tottenham Hotspur over the weekend, but couldn't add to his tally in a 2-2 draw away to Manchester United on Wednesday evening.
"To me, his challenge is that he has the possibility to be the best scorer in the Premier League," said Emery, as per the Independent. "We want to help him achieve this because if he is scoring he is helping us.
"It is also important for him that he takes confidence from matches like Tottenham, not only from scoring but helping with the pressing against them, too.
"It is also the moment to say to him 'don't stop'. I want him to continue to improve, and his challenge is collective as well as individual," Emery concluded.
Aubameyang, 29, has scored 22 goals in 33 appearances for the Gunners since his move from Borussia Dortmund in January.
