The Gabon international was used from the left flank following Arteta’s arrival at the Emirates and he spearheaded the Gunners FA Cup-winning campaign, scoring twice in the final against Chelsea.
The uptick in performances convinced Aubameyang that his long-term future was at Arsenal and he signed a new three-year deal at the club in September.
However, he’s managed just one goal from open play in the Premier League this term
‘From an offensive point of view you’re thinking maybe you put Aubameyang back on the left,’ Wright told Ringer FC’s ‘Wrighty’s House’ podcast.
‘Which is quite sad because I think one of the things that’s surprised me is that he’s had to bow a little bit to the pressure of putting him in the middle.
‘If other people were performing as well as they could do in the middle then he wouldn’t have had to do that.’
Arteta’s side take on Spurs at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on Sunday and the pressure is building on the Spaniard following Arsenal’s worst ever start to a Premier League campaign.
The Gunners have just 13 points from their opening ten matches.
