‘Cash in now’ Arteta has been told to sell Arsenal star Aubameyang with Chelsea looking to wrap up big deal
Arsenal MUST sell Chelsea target Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, according to former Gunner striker Jeremie Aliardiere.
Aubameyang may be one of the best strikers in the Premier League and scoring goals for fun on a weekly basis for the Arsenal, but it seems that this is his final season at the Emirates, with reports suggesting he is leaving the club.
Spanish giants Real Madrid and Barcelona currently lead the chase to sign Aubameyang in the summer, and he is reportedly keen to make that move to La Liga, but there has also been some reports claiming that Chelsea are interested in offering him a big contract
And with the striker only having one-year left on his current deal, Aliadiere, who won the Premier League with Arsenal in 2004, believes the club should cash in
Speaking to Goal, the Frenchman said: “They’ve got to sell him, 100 per cent.
“Arsenal can’t keep losing players on a free. To be honest, I still can’t believe we’ve again got a top player, our captain, going into the summer only having one year left on his contract.
“For me, it has to be sorted when he gets to two years. Last summer he should have signed a deal or been sold. Because when you get down to one year left, in a player’s mind there is a difference.
“If I was Aubameyang and I knew I only had one year left, I would sacrifice one year of my career to go on a free and get paid a ridiculous amount of money and have all the clubs in the world chasing me. Who wouldn’t?”
Aubameyang is not getting any younger, he wants a massive contract to stay with the Arsenal and the Gunners know they can still get some serious money for their star man, so is Aliardiere right?
However, surely it wont be Chelsea that manage to secure a transfer deal for Aubameyang as Arsenal would be quite foolish to let him leave for another Premier League rival when he is at the top of his game right now.
