The former Borussia Dortmund star has 10 goals in the Premier League this season after the Gunners beat Spurs 4-2 at the Emirates.
Aubameyang has been in terrific form this season, and Sherwood told in The Debate (h/t Daily Star) that he tracked the Gabon star while he was working at Tottenham:
“I went and watched him play for Gabon against Brazil when I was looking at Sandro, and we’d already signed him at Tottenham.
“[Aubameyang] was playing right wing and the pace he showed at the side, I thought ‘we’ve found one’.”
Sherwood added that he did a bit of digging up and found that the Arsenal man had played for AC Milan and St Etienne before recommending the striker to Tottenham.
“I recommended to the club that we maybe try and nick him for a low price.
“He could easily have been at Tottenham. We tracked him for a long period of time and we had little discussions with him.
“But the manager at the time decided that he didn’t want him and he wasn’t for them, so he could easily have been in a white shirt on Sunday.”
Tottenham have one of the best strikers in the world in Harry Kane, and we wouldn’t want to swap him for any other player in the world.
Even though we lost to the Gunners on Sunday, the English captain remains irreplaceable in the team.
