Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang most popular pick for PL top goalscorer

Shock choice

Arsenal striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is the most popular pick for Premier League top goalscorer among the bookmakers right now.

The Gabon forward had a pretty solid start to life in England following his move from Borussia Dortmund to Arsenal in January.

He scored 10 goals in 13 matches and is expected to go one step further next season and stamp his authority on England’s top league.

Though, he has some incredible competition if he wants to be Premier League top goalscorer next season.

Harry Kane impressed again last season, scoring 30 goals but could not outscore Mohamed Salah who broke several records on his way to scoring 32 times.

Sergio Aguero and Romelu Lukaku also impressed and will be two names on the lips of many looking to place a bet on who scores the most goals.

However, it is actually Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang who is the most popular bet among punters with Ladbrokes.

That is they claim that 20.13% of bets in that market have been placed on the Arsenal forward.

That beats Mo Salah who is behind with 18.20% and Harry Kane who has had 10.75% of the bets placed on him.

Jessica Bridge of Ladbrokes said: “Money talks, and punters reckon it’s Aubameyang’s time to shine this season instead of Salah and Kane hogging the headlines.”
