The Gabonese striker's second made it 17 league goals for the season, placing him as joint top-scorer in the Premier League.
The Gunners captain joined from Borussia Dortmund on deadline day in January 2018 for £58m.
But 'Big' Sam Allardyce claims that was only after he'd tried to do a deal for Aubameyang whilst he was managing Everton.
"I tried to buy him at Everton," Allardyce told talkSPORT.
"It was about £60m or £70m I think. We were searching for goals after [Romelu] Lukaku went and just wanted to test the waters.
"We spoke through his agent, and we had a shout that he was apparently desperate to get away from Germany and get into the Premier League.
"So we thought we’d have a dab, but we didn’t get very far to be fair."
Allardyce can add Aubameyang to an impressive list of names that he's apparently tried to do deals for.
"The move would have probably paid for itself such is David’s corporate influence within football," he said.
"But the fact was that the only Premier League club he would have come back to was Manchester United."
"I had got the staff in place and we were ready to rock and roll," he tells.
"What we needed was bigger and better players, like a Luka Modric. Modric was in our training ground, having a look around."
