Former Liverpool player Jamie Carragher has criticized Aubameyang’s latest form and believes he could be another Mesut Ozil for the Gunners.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang

has struggled to hit his former heights after signing a new three-year deal with the Gunners and has come under increased scrutiny this season.

The 32-year-old has scored only nine goals so far in the Premier League this season after 25 appearances, in comparison to scoring 22 goals in 36 appearances in both the previous seasons.


told Monday Night Football the 31-year-old has become lazy and is drawing comparisons with another expensive


talent of recent years.

Carragher said

: "I think Aubameyang's performances this season have been lazy, at times. I don't care how many goals he gets - he's won Golden Boots in the past - but he's definitely a player who doesn't bring anything to this team if he doesn't score a goal, and that's a big problem.

"I think there will be a big worry at Arsenal and for Mikel Arteta that they may have another Mesut Ozil situation where they give someone a big contract at £300,000 or £350,000-a-week. Good luck to him, but you've got to justify that.

"Next season and in these coming months that will be going through the manager's mind. Have we got another situation like that because what he is producing right now is nowhere near good enough considering how good a player he is and also what Arsenal have invested in him."
