Offer on the table – Could Aubameyang be off to Saudi Arabia?

There is a rumour going around this morning that the out-of-favour Arsenal striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, has been offered a way out of the club by the top Saudi side Al Nassr.

James Benge from CBS Sports has revealed that Al Nassr are happy to pay Auba’s wages until the end of the season with a view to making the move permanent in the summer.

If Arsenal are even considering allowing this to happen then it must be because they are fully expecting another top class striker to arrive this month as a replacement, unless of course Arteta thinks we can manage well enough with Lacazette, Nketiah and Martinelli, which is also a possibility.

But if we could get Auba’s wages off our books and paid in full by Al Nassr, then, when added to the savings from Maitland-Niles, Kolasinac and Pablo Mari, we would free up more than enough cash to pay mega bucks to a new superstar arrival, whether now or in the summer.

And if Auba does leave, the fact is that Nketiah and Lacazette will also be departing at the end of the season, so even if Balogun comes back from Middlesbrough as the finished product, we will urgently still need at least one more proven striker in the squad.

It would appear from the never-ending rumours that Vlahovic is the striker that Arteta wants above all, so it looks like this could end up being a very interesting transfer window indeed.

We can’t keep letting players leave without bringing in replacements, can we?

  1. Hopefully he goes.
    What Arteta is building doesn’t include him.
    He’s a bad influence wherever he’s been.
    His time has come.

  2. We should only accept a loan with them paying his full wages and an obligation to buy for £20M in the summer. Then should stop wasting time on Vlahovic and move for Jonathan David instead.

  3. Could Jack Wiltshire sign a short term contract today and be in the squad to face Liverpool today? Who’d love to see that?

    1. No! And not me!


  4. The Vlahovic thing doesn’t seem to be going away, if all the rumours are true and we have put in an offer, then i believe there is a good chance of landing him, this has been running for a while now and surely if Arsenal are still pushing, they must be confident or they would have looked elsewhere by now, and the player himself must have given them some idea that he it is worth the long haul of chasing this.

  5. So far Aubameyang has cost the club £97 mill in transfer fee and salary. Selling him for 8mill will continue the Arsenal tradition of buying and paying high and selling low

    1. But why to a Saudi nobody team in a nobody league? Why not play for Saudi Newcastle FC? Helping the Magpies stay up would be good for the bar codes and help deflect attention from the human rights criticisms of Saudi Arabia.
