Arsenal have been linked with just every available striker in Europe so far this summer, but it has just been revealed that the best and most established striker in Europe has now become available, and there is no doubt in my mind that he will be the perfect replacement for Alexis Sanchez.
Pierre-Emerick Emiliano François Aubameyang (try getting that on the back of a shirt!) is now officially on the transfer market, after the Borussia Dortmund CEO Hans-Joachim Watzke has told Bild that the (just turned) 28 year-old can leave if the right offer comes along.
‘We will listen to it when a club is willing to show its appreciation for Aubameyang in a financial way as well,” Watzke said.
This is definitely the striker I want to come to Arsenal, and surely Arsene Wenger must know how talented he is. It has been quoted that the Gabonese international hitman will be available for around 70 million Euros, which is a much safer option than buying the much-younger Mbappe.
Aubameyang has been super consistent, scoring over 100 goals in the last 3 seasons in the Bundesliga, and still has a few more years at the top ahead of him. If Wenger is serious about going for the League title next season then he should buy PEA, and keep Alexis even if he is allowed to run down his contract, although I think our Chilean superman will be more likely to extend his current deal if he sees us buy a player of Aubameyang’s quality. That will show that we truly do have the ambition to mix it with the best in the Premier League….
Come on Arsene. You know it makes sense!
