Rob Holding asked Arsenal officials if they wanted him to write Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang's signature on merchandise during his period away from the club.

The Gunners were followed by Amazon Prime cameras last season for part of their eight episode 'All Or Nothing' series.

Aubameyang was Arsenal's star striker until the end of 2021, when he was stripped of the captaincy and dropped for disciplinary reasons.

His last appearance came in a 2-1 defeat to Everton on December 6 and he left for Barcelona via mutual consent on February 1.

Prime captured all the drama and covered aspects of the saga you might not have thought about.

A batch of team photos arrived at the Arsenal Training Centre and every player needed to sign them. Unfortunately, Aubameyang wasn't present.

Central defender Holding stepped up to sign his own name before asking: "Do you want me to do Auba’s signature?"

Talk about being a team player.

Fans have reacted to the clip and they think it could be the funniest part of the show.

One person said: "You understand why we extended his contract now?"

Another added: "Proper team player this ready to fill any role."

A third commented: "Somebody out there has an Auba signature that was actually signed by Rob Holding."

While someone put: "Holding had me creasing when he made that offer."

Arsenal didn't manage to find a replacement for Aubameyang in the January transfer window and had to rely on Alexandre Lacazette and Eddie Nketiah up front.

The duo managed nine Premier League goals between themselves all campaign, with Nketiah scoring five and Lacazette scoring four, and they missed out on Champions League qualification.

Meanwhile, Aubameyang scored 11 goals in 17 La Liga appearances to help Barcelona to a second place finish.

The Gabon international admitted he had no ill will towards Arsenal, but his problem was with Arteta.

"My last few months at Arsenal were complicated, that’s football sometimes," he told journalists at his Barcelona unveiling.

"For my part, I never wanted to do anything wrong. My problem was only with Arteta. I can’t say much more, I wasn’t happy.

"It was just him and he made that decision. He wasn’t happy, I can’t tell you more. He wasn’t very happy, I was very calm.

"Those were difficult months. This is football. I’ve never wanted to do anything wrong, it’s the past and I want to think about the present."
