He scored as many as Aguero, and now the Gunners could get Benik Afobe back.

With 32 goals in all comps, Wolves striker Benik Afobe became the joint-winner of the Golden Boot award for the top scorer in English football’s four divisions this season, along with Manchester City's Sergio Aguero.

Arsenal fans may remember the name, as up until mid-season, he was on the books at the Emirates. Despite scoring 19 goals while on loan to MK Dons, Wenger let the player make a full transfer to Wolves, where he added another 13 goals in 21 appearances.

His achievements have raised question marks over whether Arsenal made a mistake in letting the talented forward go, but this tweet from @NJArsenal back in January - which Afobe favourited - suggest that the player may one day make a return to the club.

Arsenal fans - If Afobe does indeed have a buy-back clause in his contract, would you like Arsene Wenger to activate it?
