Arsenal could sell Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang this summer rather than risk losing him on a free next year, with 30-year-old desperate to win his first league title and European trophy
- Arsenal are weighing up whether to put Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang up for sale
- His is approaching the final year of his contract, having not signed a new one yet
- The club may want to get money for him rather than risk him leaving for free
Arsenal are set to open talks with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang as they weigh up whether to put their star striker up for sale in the summer.
The Gabon international has been the Gunners’ most important player since his arrival in 2018 — scoring 60 goals.
Arsenal have been rebuffed in their attempts to get him to sign a new contract, with Aubameyang, 30, shelving the most recent round of discussions after becoming disillusioned under previous manager Unai Emery.

Arsenal don’t want to lose out with the striker approaching the final 12 months of his contract
The former Borussia Dortmund striker is approaching the final 12 months of his deal and Arsenal are likely to listen to offers for their captain in the summer rather than risk losing him for nothing next year.
Aubameyang, who has never won a league title or European trophy, is desperate to relaunch his Champions League career.
The upward trajectory of the club’s fortunes since the appointment of manager Mikel Arteta has raised hopes that he can be persuaded to commit to Arsenal. The club are paying 31-year-old Mesut Ozil £350,000 per week — a salary that has not always proved value for money.

Aubameyang would command close to Ozil’s current wage if he were to sign a new deal, but the club do not want to be saddled with another huge financial commitment for a player approaching the twilight of his career.
Arsenal are also planning to welcome back Arsene Wenger and Santi Cazorla for a farewell match ahead of next season.
