Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has not performed since joining Arsenal in January.

That is the view of pundit and former Liverpool star Jamie Redknapp.

Aubameyang finally got his wish by leaving Borussia Dortmund for the Emirates two months ago.

But despite winning their last two games, Arsenal have struggled since the Gabon international arrived in north London.

Aubameyang did manage to get himself on the scoresheet against Watford on Sunday afternoon.

But Redknapp has been left very disappointed by the forward’s showing of late.

“I think if he costs £60million you want him in the team, he scored last week, but he hasn’t hit the heights yet,” he said on Sky Sports.

“I have got to be honest, I’ve been a little bit disappointed.

“I thought he would come into the Premier League – I think he’s almost caught the bug of what has happened to the rest of the players, a lack of confidence, not really playing with any zip that we expect him to come into this league.

“I think probably we will see the best of him next season. You are talking about a tremendous talent, but I do want to see a lot more, if I’m honest.

“He’s wearing that number 14 shirt but he’s not really covered it in glory yet, if I’m honest.

“I remember somebody who used to [Thierry Henry].”

Arsenal remain sixth after their 3-0 win over the Hornets.
