Arsenal set to lose Pierre Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette if they fail to qualify for Champions League.
The current crisis at the Emirates could get worse if the Gunners’ performance on the field doesn’t get better. Some reports are now claiming that that two of their stars could quit.
According to Express Sports, Aubameyang and Lacazette are prepared to depart Arsenal if they fail to qualify for Europe’s top club competition.
Lacazette joined the Gunners in 2017 for a then club-record fee and has netted 38 times for them so far. Aubameyang joined them last January and has scored 49 times.
Both strikers scored almost 50 per cent of the club’s goals last season and losing them would be a major disaster.
The club has also assured fans that the minimum requirement for Unai Emery is to secure a return to the Champions League in the 2020/2021 season.
Arsenal are currently four points behind Chelsea who are fourth in the standings, with just 10 games played.
The Gunners have opened talks with the representatives of both attackers, but there has reportedly been a reluctance to extend terms from both camps at the moment.
It would be a huge disaster for the club if they were two lose two such high profile stars. Having the likes of Auba and Laca in the team helps attract other quality players. To lose them would damage the pulling power of the club and weaken the team significantly.
Put it this way, if you think there is a crisis at Arsenal now, imagine what it would be like if those two left.
