Astonishing the supporters, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is edging closer to an exit from the Emirates with latest reports claiming that his representatives have let the club know of his desires.
The Gabon international began contributing to Arsenal’s goal tally since the first month of 2018 following a move from Borussia Dortmund. Building quite a reputation, the striker had transitioned into a fan-favourite in a short duration.
But with the English side struggling to secure even a top four position, it’s understandable if the 30-year-old wishes to look for greener pastures.
Consequently, as per the revelations made by the journalist Ian McGarry (Transfer Podcast), the former Dortmund attacker’s agents have “made it very clear” that the talented forward is unhappy with the current position of the club and does not wish to continue there.
Meanwhile, following the departure of Romelu Lukaku to Inter Milan, speculations had surfaced concerning Manchester United and their pursuits for various talented forwards in the market. And now that the Arsenal striker is wishing for a move away from Emirates, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer could exploit this opportunity to rope in the agile attacker.
Aubameyang could essentially be a valuable asset for the Mancunians, proving to be a lethal factor for the Premier League opponents. The Arsenal star’s age and his experience in the English League could be made use of by the United head coach to polish up their front three.
Moreover, if the right footer arrives at Old Trafford and dazzles the club and supporters with his efficacy as a striker, he could easily take over the No.9 position from the current holder Anthony Martial.
Despite having 18 months left in his deal holding him at the Emirates, the former Saint-Etienne star is pushing for a transfer to start contributing for some other club. With the winter transfer window imminent, speculations will gain more clarity in the upcoming month.
Nevertheless, the Red Giants could bolster their attacks by a great margin if they land the Frenchman next month or later on over the Summer of 2020.
