Former Arsenal midfielder Ray Parlour claims that current club captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is not yet a Premier League great.

Former Arsenal midfielder Ray Parlour has claimed that current club captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is not yet a Premier League great.

The comments came after Gary Neville told Sky Sports News that people should start considering the 30-year-old one of the leagues great players.

Speaking on talkSPORT, Parlour argued: "I think you've got to look a bit more at longevity. Sergio Aguero, Thierry Henry, Alan Shearer, Robbie Fowler, all these sorts of guys did it year-in, year-out.

"You can't argue with his record, and if he hadn't scored the goals he's scored this season Arsenal could be very much more in a relegation battle than trying to get in that top five.

"But whether you can call him a Premier League great yet, I'm not sure about that."

The Gabonese striker scored two goals on Sunday as Arsenal beat Everton 3-2 at the Emirates Stadium.
