An ‘important proposal’ could lead to Aubameyang’s exit

Fabrizio Romano claims that Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang could well leave Arsenal this summer, but only if an ‘important proposal’ was to arrive.

The Gabon international signed a new three-year deal last summer, which was due to keep our club captain tied to the Emirates until 2023, but this season has raised question marks.

The goalscorer has had a rare campaign in which he has struggled to find a glut of goals, and his dedication has also been questioned, highlighted by the manager’s decision to drop him after he turned up late to the North London derby.

Romano insists that Arsenal do not see Auba as a problem however, and are happy to keep him at the club, although they would listen to a fair offer for his signature.

Fabrizio told The Arsenal Lounge: “To be honest, I think that he is one of the players that with a good proposal – and when I say good, it has to be an important proposal, not just good – I would say an important proposal, he has chances to leave.

“But, at the moment, I am told that they don’t consider the player as a problem, let’s say like that. If something big happens, they are open, but if not, the player Is 100% staying, and they are happy with him.”

Auba clearly had some struggles this season, on and off the pitch it seems, but in my opinion he still retains much of his ability, and Arsenal shouldn’t be in a rush to offload him.

That being said, you could completely understand if he wished to leave, with such limited time at the top of his game left of his career, and with our club having failed to secure European football.

Would this summer be the ideal time to cash-in on Auba or does his worth outweigh his cash value?

    Sell Auba and keep Laca. When Auba is on the field, the young guys don’t like or understand how to play ball with him. Laca they love to play with.

      Sell laca & auba and sign leed coach with bamford & rodrigo

    It’s long we had an Alexis Sanchez type of player. A mercurial player who could make something out of nothing at any point in the game. We need that star factor, that flair, that magic, once again at Arsenal…

  3. proudgunner says:

    Not one of the top 10 strikers in the world could score goals with the mid-field players we have as they are not good enough from there ability or training to slip a pass see a pass
    cross a pass, we need proper no 10’s like man city have as our forwards run n run for no end product so the ball ends back at the (? keeper?) who passes to the opponents or puts out for a throw disaster, spend the money to make money and win trophies

    A poor mechanic always blames all his tools even including his workbench. If you are not a genius you will never notice one. This proposal by ametures is not termed rebuilding but the correct term is dismantling

    This issue has now been raised in two articles close together. Refer to previous comments.

    I’m sure that Aubamayang wouldn’t want to leave and receive lower wages….This being the case which team in World Football would want to pay a fee for a 30 year old plus striker and then pay him over £15million a year?…Especially a goal scorer who seemingly has lost the ability to score goals!
    I would think that Arsenal are hoping that his goalscoring form will return although given the likely set-up and playing style of Arsenal’s team that isn’t particularly likely…
    Arsenal have a choice of making him available on a “free”…keep playing him in the hope his form returns or allow him to do an Ozil and to sit out periods of the remainder of his contract….It’s likely that it will be a mixture of the latter two options.

    1. John says:

      I agree I can not see any club, especially in the current climate being able to afford him unless he agrees to lower wages.

    Sometimes tough decisions have to be made.
    In Arsenals history strikers have been sold . Herd was sold to MU and helped them to trophies. RVp helped MU win the title.
    Aubu has been having apoor season but its best he goes to shave off the mammoth wage bill.

    I have no idea what Arteta is thinking but this team needs some serious assessment before selling or signing anyonone.In my view
    1.Manager-i would wish we get an experienced man in this role but it is clear we are stuck with Arteta for now.
    2.On loan players-We should bring back(Saliba,Willock&Mavpro).Kola,Guendo,Toreira&Amn should be moved on.
    3.Gk.(Sign Matt Ryan&unless Leno leaves we are sorted)
    4.Rb(Bellerin should leave,he has reached his max at arsenal&he needs a new challenge. C.chambers & Cedric are equal to the task)
    5.Lb(We have Tieney but his injuries are a concern.We must invest in a quality Lb who can play weekly & not just a K.T understudy. We can raid Chelsea for either Alonso or Emerson.
    6.Cb(Holding, Gabriel, Mari,Saliba&Mavpro-This area is sorted)
    7.CDM(T.P,Xhaka&Elneny)If Xhaka moves we must replace with better quality I prefer Kevin Phillips.Otherwise we are OK.
    8.CAM(Both Ceballos&Ode should go back to Spain)We have only ESR&Willock.Both young & in experienced. We must therefore invest in two proper AMs to complement this 2.We are after Buendia which sounds good. For me we should compete for Jack grealish&Reuben Neves.This would be a proper upgrade.
    9.LW(Auba&Saka)Unless Auba is sold we are good.
    10.RW(Both William&Reis’s aren’t good enough they should be moved.) We are left with Pepe.Let’s go for a proper winger with pace &Energy. For me either Adama or Allain maxim.
    C.F(Sell Laca while he is still salable.)We should go forEither Calvert Lewin or Patrick bamford to compete with G.Mattinelli&promote Bolugun as cover.
    We would have shipped out over 10 under perfomers&Signed five or so better players.
    This will surely see us in top four we a very minimal net spend.

      Thank God you are not the one deciding anything at the club.
