This online news medium had reported that Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane both of Liverpool, shared the award with the Gabon international.
Aubameyang, Egypt’s Salah and Senegal’s Mane, all netted 22 goals to win the award.
Aubameyang scored 31 goals in 50 games for the Gunners this term, his first full season since his £56m switch in January last year.
Speaking about the award, he said: “I’m happy that we won and that I’m sharing the [Golden Boot] trophy with two other guys that I like.
“My team mates knew I was in contention. Me? I said nothing to the guys because I didn’t want them to only focus on me.
“I’m a team player and if I wasn’t scoring, it wouldn’t have mattered. But I scored and I’m really happy for that. I have to be thankful to the team.
“It was a tough season but I had the chance to score goals, because the team played a great season.
“Of course the last months were not the best in the Premier League, but the whole season, we put in a great effort.
“I was near (to a hat-trick) but sometimes that can happen.”
