Could Arsenal land two Real Madrid players in Aubameyang swap deal?

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has always intimated that Real Madrid was his dream move, and early this month it was reported that we approached the Galacticos about his availability come the summer.

Barcelona, Manchester United and Liverpool are also believed to be keen on signing the Gabon international, with the Red Devils suggested as the strongest admirers of his capture, but it would seem that we have our own ideas.

Arsenal are currently linked with possible moves to sign Luka Jovic, Dani Ceballos and James Rodriguez this summer, as well as being linked with other players such as Isco and Lucas Vazquez previously, and this could be the perfect opportunity to bring in some of the above.

Real Madrid are supposedly open to the departure of Vazquez and James in the coming window, while Jovic has broken team orders to return to his homeland amidst the Coronavirus pandemic, which will not be taken lightly by the Galacticos.

Jovic has so far failed to live up to his €60 Million fee, scoring two league goals in his 15 La Liga outings, and could well find himself moved on this summer also (with Wolves striker Raul Jimenez linked).

Mikel Arteta is believed to be a strong admirer of Jovic from before he moved to Spain, and could well take up the option to save him from his struggles.

Dani Ceballos is currently on loan with Arsenal already, but there is not believed to be a pre-agreed transfer fee included in that deal, but he has impressed and could well be open to continuing at our club beyond the summer also.

We are also believed to have tried to sign James Rodriguez last summer, only for injuries to stack up at the Bernadeu, forcing Zidane to close the exit door.

If Arsenal could get any of the two aforementioned players in place of Aubameyang I would more than happy, although there would be an element of risk if those two players were James and Jovic.

Which two would you pick? Has Ceballos done enough to deserve to be top of that list?

    However much it would be hard to see Aubamayang go, the opportunity to get Jovic and Ceballos in exchange could be too good to turn down. Auba is not getting younger and would need to replaced sooner or later. Jovic is a natural goal scorer and a definite upgrade on Lacazette in terms of finishing. It could be Arteta sees this as a chance to get a top young goal scorer in place of an aging striker who seems determined to go anyway.

      Obviously Auba isn’t good enough to help get the best out of Ozil, but will Jovic be the man? He may be younger, but he’s nowhere near Auba’s levels.

      I’d rather stick with Auba, whilst blooding Martinelli to eventually lead the line.

      1. Doug says:

        “isn’t good enough” and “Auba” shouldn’t be in the same sentence.

      2. Jo-Gunz says:

        Auba was not brought in to improve Ozil.
        He is to score goals and has delivered with or without Ozil.
        If each player is to do his job well enough, that would be well enough to complement each other.
        I however believe that swapping for Dani and Jovic is a no brainier

  2. GB says:

    Jovic yes but still not sure about Ceballos.

    1. ahmad73 says:

      Agree. I would be chuffed if we could get Isco.

    2. Kenny Rolfe says:

      Agree with GB. not to sure about Cebellos, surely we won’t sell Auba to United. Anyway, I’d gamble and keep him and go into his last season in the hope we get Champions League football. Cant let a goal machine like him leave, especially to another English club. Also the fact he loves London, wouldn’t surprise me if he decided to sign a new contract

    Definitely jovic

    Jovic & Cellabos for Auba & $10-20m. Get it done!

    Jovic and Ceballos for Auba and we groom Martineli who is more ready to take any chance given to him. H e has already shown this in his recent appearances.
