Top 5 surely!!

Messi, Ronaldo, Lewandowski then, in my opinion Auba before Neymar and Salah, or is that bias?

Messi, Neymar, and Ronaldo aren't strikers though. If we consider goal-scorers in general, excluding Messi and Ronaldo, it's Lewandowski, Neymar, Mbappe, Auba, and Salah in that order currently. No Prem player has scored more goals since Auba's PL debut.

On a different note, Neymar is hands down the third best player in the world but he's had a wild run with injuries. His goal involvement ratio is second only to Messi since 17/18 season.

The issue we have also is FFP and the losses we made, if it carries on we'll get a huge fine and/or a ban and also a points deduction. Weve royally messed up, with Ozil still getting his 350 a week it doesn't help.

If we can get Mkhitryan off the wage bill it might help a bit though,

Such a poorly run club, ironically people use to harp on about how we do things the right way etc etc and yet out of all the top clubs we're in the biggest mess.

Wait Messi and Ronaldo, Neymar are not strikers but Salah and Auba and Mbappe are?

I'd say they are all deployed as Inside Forwards and sometimes strikers, Ronaldo & Mbappe more so recently, Salah never as far as i know.

Salah isn't either. Auba is. Mbappe is a CF who can play anywhere across the front line.

He is now yeah, but hes played wings up until half way through this season with occasional time up front.

You can't really say Auba is only doing good for goals because hes a 'real striker played out wide' because he played most of his career out wide also, they all play in similar roles with the same versatility.

For me He's better out wide how hard is this to understand? . Auba is a good finisher and fast, but his passing and hold up play isn't great, which is why he is better on the left wing as he can run into space and create chances to score.

That makes sense if we're playing someone up front that's doing the stuff Auba doesn't do well but instead it's a double negative. Missed chances and no hold up/link up play.

I am acually very impressed on how Arteta has used Auba out wide giving him the opportunity to come into the half spaces to allow width for the full backs dragging the opposition full back in whilst maintaining him as a goal threat.

It is very similar role to Mane at Liverpool but one that is paying off. Stats below from everton game show how playing wide has allowed him to have the goal in front of him more so that he can run at defenders in one vs ones or gain a sight at goal!

Just look at this stats in the everton game

Again, it comes back to who is playing up front if it's not Auba. If we're not getting great build up play or passing from whomever else is playing the CF role, like what was saw in the EL with Laca, then we're essentially wasting two players.

First 45 minutes of this game if you're watching. 61% pass completion from Nketiah, losing the ball, no hold up play and we're getting nothing from Aubameyang. So it's like we're down two players.

Play him through the center with Martinelli on the left.

I agree, but there must be a reason Arteta has not thought of that and it might be that Auba does not do well up top on his own and needs someone to play off.
