“When has he ever bought a 29-year-old for £60m with no sell-on clause? Never ever.
Merson made a claim that the Gabonese International was push through just to fight for titles in a short period.
Aubameyang bagged a goal on his debut for the Gunners alreay in a Premier League match against Everton in a 5-1 victory.
“Sir Alex Ferguson did it a few years ago,” Merson continued.
“He said he needed to win the league and he got Robin van Persie to score him the goals to get above Manchester City.
“There was no sell-on, he got him to win the league, then he planned to retire.
“The Aubameyang signing says to me, ‘this is a top-four signing then see you later.’”
