Wenger snubs Aubameyang as he names his best January signing

Former Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has snubbed the club’s captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang when selecting the best business, he did in the short January window.

The Frenchman who admitted that he was not a fan of the window his 22 years at Arsenal said that Nigerian striker Nwankwo Kanu maybe had the biggest impact to his team when he signed for the team on New Year's Day 21 years ago.

"Maybe (Nwankwo) Kanu. In the middle of the season. That had a big impact and he was a huge player," Wenger said in an interview with beIN Sports.

Kanu spent five and years at Arsenal, helping the club to two Premier League titles and two FA Cups but its Aubameyang who has had some good outing for the club since joining them in January 2018.

In his first season at the Emirates, the Gabon captain registered 10 goals and four assists in his first 13 Premier League games.

He was to share the Premier League golden boot in the next season with Liverpool duo of Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane after they all finished the campaign with 22 league strikes.

This season, the former Borrusia Dortmund man had bagged 17 goals before the coronavirus break with the tally placing him second only to Leicester's Jamie Vardy in the Premier League scoring chart.
