Arsenal striker Pierre Emerick-Aubameyang is a big fan of the two men he shared the Premier League Golden Boot with, Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane.

All three men scored 22 league goals this season and shared the prize as a result, the first time it has been split three ways since 1998-99 when Michael Owen, Dwight Yorke and Jimmy-Floyd Hasselbaink finished level.

Winning the award for the first time was a proud moment for Aubameyang and sharing it was not an issue, especially as it was with his fellow African stars Salah and Mane.

Aubameyang of Gabon, Mane of Senegal and Salah of Egypt are three of the biggest stars in the Premier League, and the Arsenal man is delighted that they are all representing their continent with distinction.

‘It meant a lot to win the Golden Boot,’ Aubameyang told Arsenal’s official website. ‘I am really happy and proud of it, especially to share the trophy with Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah.

‘I really like these two guys. We are representing Africa so it is a good sign for the continent. Africa is in my heart and in my mind, so I’m extremely proud to represent it in the Premier League.

‘The African people really love football, like everyone across the world, it makes me very proud to represent Africa in such an amazing way because not everyone gets the chance to play in the Arsenal colours.’

After an impressive season in front of goal for the Gunners, Aubameyang is set to be offered a new contract, as is strike partner Alexandre Lacazette.

The Gabonese forward has been linked with a move to China, while Lacazette has been mentioned as a Barcelona target.

Arsenal wish to ward off interest in their two key strikers by extending their deals at the club.
