Saint-Étienne striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has impressed everyone this season and will be a good addition to the Premier League if he makes the switch from France.

Let's look at the qualities he will bring to the English game and why his move would be a success.


The striker was not as prolific in the earlier part of his career, which is understandable as he was on loan at different clubs and was learning his trade, but in the past two seasons he has established himself as a goalscorer, netting 35 goals in 68 league appearances.

Considering he is still only 23, the Gabon international will improve further in the coming years and will become more lethal in front of goal.

Pace and dribbling

The player is blessed with electrifying pace and dribbling skills that make him a menace for opposing defenders. He can create space by attracting defenders towards him, and he can also beat defenders in one-on-one situations because of his dribbling and skills. 

Football intelligence

The striker has shown time and again that he is clever and thinks outside the box to create opportunities for his team.

He spent the early part of his career as a winger, which has given his game an all-round quality. He would, however, have to improve his work rate as he seems disinterested when the opposition has the ball and ignores his defensive duties. But this part of his game would improve by playing in an all-action demanding Premier League.

The player is valued at around £13m - a valuation which is unlikely to deter interest from his suitors in England and other top European leagues.
