Arsenal could offload £250,000-a-week star before transfer window closes

Arsenal is prepared to offload Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang before this transfer window closes and he could join Manchester City, according to ESPN.

The Gunners have had a busy summer and have added the likes of Ben White and Albert Sambi Lokonga to their squad in this transfer window.

They are still not doing better and could offload some of their current options before the window closes.

ESPN claims the Gunners have opened the door for Aubameyang to leave them, just one year after he signed his current £250,000-a-week deal with them.

The report claims that Arsenal isn’t worried about the lack of goals in their squad and the fact that he is their main goalscorer.

The striker has less than 10 league goals in 2021 and they believe now is the best time to cash in on him.

Selling the striker will earn the Gunners around £25m, a fee they could add to and bring in a younger and perhaps more lethal striker.

The report further claims that one very possible destination for the former Borussia Dortmund man is Man City.

The Citizens want Harry Kane, but Tottenham is unwilling to sell and the report claims that they could land Aubameyang before the window closes if they cannot get Kane.

    One thing is for certain is they won’t be getting Kane

    A younger and more lethal striker for £25 million? I’m sure Arsenal & every other club would be interested for that price.

    Hardly enough funds to bring in a difference maker, likely add more deadwood to fuel our current dumpster fire.

    We sorely need an impact player who displays some consistency.

    With Arsenal, nothing shocks me anymore.

    We once sold Nasri and Fabregas in the same window.

    We sold RVP to Man United. and Henry to Barcelona.

    If Aubameyang leaves to Man City, i wont blame him.

    What we need is a top manager who can change the mentality of the club.
    We need a manager who wont accept failure.
    We need a manager that can assemble a team that will go to the etihad and beat Man city.

    We need a team that can compete for the league.
    I dont believe in top 4 finish. I want a team that will compete with Liverpool and Man city for the league title.

    That can only happen with an experienced manager and a top squad.
    For now, that is not the case with Arsenal.

      we need Edu out for going for cheap players

      Problem is full of inexperienced players

      Are you some kind of propagandist or just too young to remember? We know under what circumstances these players were sold. Were they suppose to be chained at the Emirates?

        Hi Mark,

        It is not a propaganda. And i remembered vividly the circumstances.
        What i meant is any player who decides to leave for whatever cicumstances, wont be the first and last.
        Players come and go. the club remains.

    None of us are happy atm. , but it’s football take the good and the bad , it’s just our turn at the bad.
    But we can’t get much worse so it’s up from here i think.
    I’d prefer Laca before Aubu so let him go , it’s not like we will trouble City anyhow.

  5. Adega Olatunji says:

    Am still in shock ‘ Aubamayang can be sold but Xhaka got new contract for mediocrity and useless football. Truly trust the process 😢

    1. The-Real-Vieira-Lynn-4ever says:

      was just about to speak on that same point, but you beat me to the proverbial punch…just imagine the kind of statement that makes to the footballing world at large, that this club gave the predominantly underwhelming Xhaka an extension, a raise and the armband, on opening day, yet they would seriously consider the selling off our only truly recognized world-class player, for a pittance of what it would actually cost to replace him…sadly, I wouldn’t be surprised whatsoever if this was to occur

      1. Mark says:

        Auba.. World Class..

        This is a joke right?

        1. The-Real-Vieira-Lynn-4ever says:

          give your head a shake wise guy…check out his CV some time when you get a minute, maybe during recess

    2. Ozziegunner says:

      Plus me as well Sue, TRVL4e and Adega.

  6. Arsenal2win says:

    Let Auba go, Soldier go, soldier come. Barrack remains barrack. Losing him will be a relief. He’s not the first & will not be the last.

  7. Reggie says:

    Cant see it myself, unless Pep thinks it might help his mate out but i doubt either.

  8. Mosesnyambe says:

    Both Auba and Laca plus Willian should leave because they are all underperforming.Let Arteta bring two young and able players who can run behind the deffenders.

    1. Ozziegunner says:

      What about bringing the best out of Aubameyang and Lacazette? Lacazette last season was top scorer at Arsenal and Aubameyang has had only one underperforming season.

  9. Mrcool says:

    This is just a mere rumour, can’t see it happening.

    But if it happens, good luck to auba .

    Xhaka and arteta are the major flops the club should consider offloading before any other players.

  10. Quantic Dream says:

    I wish this were true! SELL SELL SELL!!!

    1. Ozziegunner says:

      And buy who? QD can you trust them to buy better? Why not have Arteta manage the player resources he has available to him?

  11. RFrancis says:

    Just over a week to go in the transfer window and our talisman, captain and leading goal scorer is now on the chopping block. And even worse, no replacement striker in the works.

    It’s hard to read the Kroenke’s, but maybe, just maybe, they have decided – finally – to throw in the towel, wave the white flag to say “no mas” we’re out of here. “Let’s just dump wages, rid the club of all deadwood and clear the run runway for Daniel Ek. After seeing all the damage you done so far, Micke, I just can’t trust you to spend another dollar” – my version of quotes from Arteta’s recent meeting with Kroenke. (Actual quotes are PG rated and can not be published – for obvious reasons).

    Put on your batting pads and helmet, Daniel Ek. You will be next.

  12. Davi says:

    Man City? Seems a bit far fetched. £25m equally so. If we pull that off, Edu will deserve a medal.
    Either way, we’re in a bad place in the striker front as I don’t see us getting a replacement who can make a difference, which is what we really need.

  13. Muyizo says:

    Selling auba without a replacement in the shape of adama traore or Martinez or iago aspas or chieasa or even the lesser polished El nesir makes no sense. Arsenal
    Seems to take one meek step forward and two colossal backward steps every time they make a transfer decision. It’s not arteta’s fault arsenal can’t shift out the dead woods to fund proper transfer but it’s his fault for not given guendozi and torera a chance in midfield and his fault for not also given saliba a chance there by saving arsenal from spending 50million on white. That precious money could have been used to bring in either maddisson or Ruben neves if he did not want to use the aforementioned players. That money could have brought in belotti (Torino) or Antonio( wstham) or the highly prized Martinez ( inter). But in my view, Antonio Conte could have been the biggest transfer for us if we are ambitious enough. But sadly these circle of mediocrity will not abate for the unforseen future. Wesbrom might fancy their chances against us tonight. That is how low we have fallen
