The Arsenal captain recently returned from a calf injury and was left as an unused substitute in the Gunners’ 3-1 victory over Chelsea on Boxing Day.
Aubameyang has struggled for form this season, with just three goals in 13 Premier League games so far.
And Bent believes Arteta should stick with Gabriel Martinelli in attack for the Gunners’ trip to Brighton.
‘I wouldn’t bring Aubameyang back. I wouldn’t bring any of them back,’ Bent told talkSPORT.
‘I think that team did well against a good Chelsea team and there seems to be a bit of a feel good factor around bringing some of the kids on.
‘To get fans on side there’s nothing better than bringing some of your own into the first-team and they do well.
‘If Aubameyang is fit for this next game and you take these young players straight back out again, confidence wise that might kill them a little bit.
‘So I would stick with the youngsters and the more experienced guys might have to bide their time.
‘But Saka has been absolutely brilliant. Even in the tough times Arsenal have had this season, he has been very very good.
‘And [Emile] Smith Rowe is a very clever footballer, he’s got that bit of creativity we’ve been crying out for.’
