Pierre Emerick-Aubameyang proposed to top European clubs as Arsenal seek to get rid of striker with Barcelona interested

ARSENAL’s outcast, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, has reportedly been made available for a transfer to Europe’s biggest hitters.

Aubameyang was sent off the squad by Gunners manager Mikel Arteta following another disciplinary offense last month on his late return from a visit to France.

According to the Mail, clubs across the continent have been told they can sign the disgraced striker as early as this month as Arsenal are happy to offload him.

The Gabon international has previously been linked with a move to Barcelona, ​​who are desperate to strengthen their attack following the shock retirement of Sergio Aguero.

Barca are reportedly keen on signing the 32-year-old, but only on loan, due to his continued financial difficulties.

Juventus are also keeping an eye on Aubameyang, as are Newcastle, who are also looking to loan it to him.

However, a potential deal wouldn’t be easy as the center-forward is on international duty with Gabon ahead of this month’s Africa Cup of Nations in Cameroon.

Moreover, his £ 350,000-a-week salary could prove to be a big hurdle as well, especially for cash-strapped Barcelona.


Arteta’s decision to take the ex-Borussia Dortmund star’s captain’s armband off could also lower his price.

Arsenal haven’t made a concrete decision on Aubameyang’s future, but it looks grim.

Arteta is also considering the possibility of losing Ainsley Maitland-Niles as well as Sead Kolasinac.

Maitland-Niles is linked with Roma and is keen to move up to Serie A, but it is understood he will stay at the Emirates if the Gunners refuse to let him go mid-season.

Kolasinac, on the other hand, sparked interest from Marseille and Watford in the window.
