Arteta identifies ideal Aubameyang replacement for Arsenal, but faces competition from Chelsea

Arsenal are lining up Luka Jovic to replace Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta is reportedly making Real Madrid misfit Luka Jovic his preferred transfer target to replace Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

Chelsea are also mentioned as suitors for Jovic as Sport claim Arsenal boss Arteta is eager to land the Serbia international due to doubts over Aubameyang’s future at the Emirates Stadium.

The Gabon international is nearing the final year of his contract with Arsenal and will be a tough act to follow after his world class form in his time in north London.

Many Gooners will no doubt be unconvinced about Jovic stepping up to replace such a lethal finisher and consistent performer, but the 22-year-old looked a huge talent before earning his big move to Madrid last summer.

Jovic looked a world class talent in the making at previous club Eintracht Frankfurt, and if Arteta sees something in him, it could be that he’ll be the manager to get him back to his best after his struggles in Spain.

Chelsea also need to strengthen up front after a challenging first season under Frank Lampard, and if the Blues end up getting that final Champions League spot, it will surely give them a huge edge in this transfer battle.

    lacazette is better than jovic, I could rather use pepe as second striker rather than him or bring Raul gimenez

      Why Chelsea all the time, can’t Chelsea discover players, must they go for any player Arsenal want?

    Y not tie Auba to a 3yrs contract of what he wans to earn weekly instead of spending 50,60m on new signing that may need time to adopt to our game.

    1. Alaba Sunday says:

      try n lure Auba with improved bucks before sending him away unintentionally
      Laca is good in front with Martinelli

    2. Frank says:

      This seems to be wise thinking and a smart idea. At least for Auba, we know he can deliver during this 3 yes while also reclaiming our lost position in the UEFA Champions league.

    Auba has already indicated that he wants a club where he can win things so we can tie him but what if he changes to be the Orzil type who will prefer to enjoy his money instead of doing what he is payed for. Given that his age is also catching up. Does it mean that we have to loose another big money for some one who is remaining with one best year in his carrier? Auba should go to Madrid and we have Luka who is still young at 22 years. And on top of that he is chipper than Auba.

  4. Moses says:

    Is good to promote Matinelli on that position than to buy replacement coz we already have a position in need to replace number (10)Spent that amount which is reserved for Jovic to buy expensive player which is perfect replacement for Ozil
