Former Arsenal captain, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, is currently the all-time highest goalscorer in the Europa League even though he is yet to win the trophy.

Aubameyang has played for a couple of European heavyweight clubs in his career but has not been able to win as many major titles as expected.

The 34-year-old Gabonese striker is currently contracted to Olympique de Marseille after spells at Borussia Dortmund, Arsenal, FC Barcelona, and Chelsea in the last 10 years of his football career.

So far in his football career, Aubameyang has scored 31 goals in the UEFA Europa League and could increase his tally before this season ends.
