Arsenal fans left WTF as hierarchy ‘will listen’ to Manchester United offer for superstar Aubameyang
Shock reports have claimed Arsenal ‘are willing to listen to offers’ for Manchester United target Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang this summer.
Aubameyang has become the most important member of the Arsenal attack since his move to the Emirates and netted an impressive 31 goals for the Gunners last season and shared the premier League golden boot in the process.
However, there has been some talk in the media which has claimed that he has been tempted by a big money move away this summer, with reports that United are keen to add him to the squad over the next few months.
United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is on the verge of losing Romelu Lukaku,w ith the powerhouse set for a move to Italy, and will need to add another striker to the squad this transfer window.
According to BBC Sport, Arsenal will have a lowly £40million summer transfer budget, which would have been ‘significantly’ higher had they qualified for the Champions League, and Arsenal are ready to cash in on the forward – as long as any offer submitted is considered acceptable.
Wilfred Zaha has urged the Eagles to let him join his ‘boyhood club’ Arsenal this summer, but Palace chiefs value the 26-year-old at £80million and Arsenal will need the funds to complete this kind of transfer deal.
Aubameyang, 29, has also been linked with a move to China and the Times report that both Guangzhou Evergrande and Shanghai SIPG have offered him £300,000-a-week to join the Chinese Super League.
Aubameyang is world class and Arsenal will surely not let him leave the club, especially as there has been talk that they are preparing to offer the Gabon striker a lucrative deal to keep him at the Emirates.
He has settled in London nicely and unless an offer that Arsenal simply cannot refuse arrives, then Aubameyang will surely be looking to improve on his 31-goals for the club next season.
The Gunners would be foolish to replace a 10-goal a season star like Zaha with a man that achieved 22 in the Premier League last season.
