Arsenal fans are not going to like seeing the latest headlines. Nope, not one bit.
Reports have emerged that multiple clubs are getting prepared to make a run at landing star Gunners' striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang this summer. A potential move away from Arsenal? To make matter worse, both Chelsea and Manchester United are among the teams he's already being linked to.
Chelsea are now in the running to try and sign Aubameyang!— 90min (@90min_Football) March 19, 2020
What do you think are the chances of him staying with the Gunners? 😳 https://t.co/Mdb7c7sw5U
In the past two years, the French talent has been one of the top goal scorers in the English Premier League. This season, before play was suspended due to COVID-19 concerns, Aubamayeng had 17 league goals to his name in 26 matches.
And of course last campaign, he shared the EPL Golden Boot with Liverpool stars Sadio Mane and Mo Salah after finishing the season with 22 goals. In addition to Chelsea and Manchester United, Barcelona is also planning on making a move on him once the summer transfer window opens.
Aubameyang is out of contract with Arsenal in the summer of 2021, and reports out of London indicate little progress has been made on the two parties agreeing to any kind of an extension. With this being the case, it could make sense for Arsenal to try and sell him for a hefty fee. At the same time, this team would take a major step back without him in the starting 11 for each battle.
As the summer inches closer and closer, you can expect more and more teams to show their interest in Pierre-Emerick. What will Arsenal decide? We can only wait to see how things play out.
