Arsenal striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang insists that he does not need to win silverware to be considered as a top striker.

Arsenal captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has insisted that he does not need to win trophies to be considered a top striker.

The 30-year-old has notched up 17 league goals for the Gunners this season, level with Leicester City striker Jamie Vardy in the race for the Golden Boot.

However, Aubameyang is yet to win a trophy with Arsenal since his arrival in January 2018, and speculation has been rife regarding the striker's future with his contract set to expire next summer.

Nevertheless, the Gabon international has claimed that players do not need to win silverware to be regarded as top quality.

Speaking to Sky Sports News, Aubameyang said: "I'm a striker so I will defend my side - I do not think you need trophies to be a top striker.

"Of course, it can help you but we've seen a lot of great players that didn't win trophies but we respect them because of their quality. You do not need to win trophies but if you win it, it's better."

Arsenal will be looking to win their third consecutive Premier League match when they take on West Ham United at the Emirates on Saturday.
