He said: "Arsenal fans have spent the past 2hrs gloating about why we’re so much better without Aubameyang & they're so glad he's gone. Meanwhile, he just scored his 6th goal in 9 games for Barcelona, which includes 5 goals in 6 La Liga games.

"I miss you ⁦@Auba."

Aubameyang's departure has seen Arsenal trust their youth, with Bukayo Saka, Martin Odegaard, Gabriel Martinelli and Emile Smith Rowe playing behind Alexandre Lacazette.

The 32-year-old is happy to see his old side succeeding and replied: "Thanks Piers but Sometimes everyone benefits from a separation most important is that everyone is happy now.

"And we had good times that I will don’t forget."

Aubameyang's last game for Arsenal was in a 2-1 defeat to Everton before Christmas.

He was captain at the time, but was stripped of the armband and dropped from the squad for disciplinary reasons.

Since then, Arsenal's only defeat in the league has been against league leaders Manchester City.

They're a point clear of Manchester United in fifth and have three games in hand.

Meanwhile, Blaugrana boss Xavi paid tribute to Aubameyang after his goal in 4-0 victory over Osasuna.
