Newcastle sent transfer message about signing Aubameyang this month
Stan Collymore is the latest pundit to warn Newcastle United about a potential move for Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.
Aubameyang has been in the headlines for all the wrong reasons over the past 12 months as he has not been able to find his goal-scoring touch that prompted the Gunners to give him £350,000-a-week.
His performances this season, his disciplinary off the field has now led to reports in the media that Arsenal are very much open to the idea of letting him leave this transfer window, with a few clubs interested in a deal.
But now it has been claimed that super-rich Newcastle are eyeing up a possible deal, as they seek to sign some statement signings that will get them away from that relegation battle and push them up the table.
However, amid the speculation, Newcastle have been urged to not make a move for Auba by former Premier League star Collymore: “There are many things Newcastle, a giant but struggling club, need right now but Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang isn’t one of them,” he said.
“He’ll park his big, gold Lamborghini in the Bigg Market and is one of the last characters you would want in the trenches when the chips were down.
“Perhaps Eddie Howe will partner Aubameyang with Anthony Martial and have the mardiest strike pairing in the Premier League.”
Look, a couple of years ago Auba was one of the best strikers in the game and Newcastle would have been lucky to get hold of him, but he is not that player anymore. He would command a massive wage and wouldnt score the goals the Toon need.
He would not be a good signing
