The Gabon international has been frozen out of the first-team set-up by Mikel Arteta after a disciplinary breach which culminated in him losing the captaincy.

The striker has recently been linked with a move to Saudi Arabia too and Adebayor, who was also frozen out at the Emirates Stadium before a move to Manchester City in 2009, hit out at the club, warning Aubameyang that it could be a rollercoaster of emotions.

"This is the first problem that has happened with Arsenal," the former Togo international said.

"I know he is definitely going to go through a lot, because that's Arsenal for you, they never know how to forgive.

"He is a strong player, he's a good player, he's a fantastic player. I wish him all the best and I've sent him a message already.

"We just want him to bounce back, he is our African brother and we want him to keep representing Africa the way he was doing before the problem."

The 37-year-old then added that he thinks there is no road back for the forward and that he should look to move onto pastures new.

He said: "In Arsenal, I don't think there is a way back for him.

"This is why I tell him to leave, because it happened to me, not in the same way, but in Arsenal way back, I'd be surprised.

"But as I'm telling you he's a great player, so let's see where he ends up."
