Players Arsenal can ask from Manchester United in exchange for Pierre Emerick Aubameyang

Manchester United have been linked with a move for Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang in recent weeks

The Red Devils are not the only team interested in signing him but they have become serious contenders because of their financial power as well as their upward trajectory on the league table.

If he does agree to join the Red Devils like Robin van Persie did, here are some players I think Arsenal can ask for in exchange.

Anthony Martial
If Manchester United wants a top talent like Aubameyang, then Arsenal can demand Anthony Martial in exchange.

The Frenchman is enjoying one of his most productive campaigns ever but his game time could reduce if Aubameyang joins.

Eric Bailey
Bailey has struggled with injuries this season but the few games he has played for Ole Gunnar Solkjear he has been impressive.

He would struggle to get into this Manchester United team with Victor Lindelof and Harry Maguire now their first choice centre back pairing.

He would slot in at the back at the Emirates and he still has a few more good years in him at the top.

Axel Tuanzebe
Tuanzebe showed his quality when he starred for Aston Villa on loan last season, he helped the Midlands team gain promotion to the Premier League top flight and he has hardly put a foot wrong when he has played in the Premier League.

As Arsenal continues to struggle at the back, if Arsenal can get him and some cash in exchange for Aubameyang it won’t be the worst.

Diogo Dalot
The young Portuguese star has struggled for game time since the arrival of Aaron Wan-Bissaka.

However, he remains a good player and one with so much potential. I back Mikel Arteta to get the best out of him and we can ask for extra cash if he is used as a sweetener in the deal.

    If we are going with this option then let’s talk to Barcelona about swapping him for Griezmann. Griezmann is a great player in his own right but unfortunately has not set the world alight at barcelona. I think griezmanns style would suit the left wing, allowing us to have a player better suited to playing on the wing ( auba is not the best winger and provides more as a striker but not bad on left wing). It will also solve our striker headache leaving lacca and nketia as 1st and 2nd choice and griezmann and martinelli for left wing and 3rd or 4th choice.

    An even better deal would be to swap lacca and have bother auba and griezmann. I dont beleive lacca is suited to our style and is more sort of and advanced forward rather than a poacher. Whilst he can finish he played with his back to goal and does not create chances or poach them in the box how auba nketia and martinelli do. Lacca is a good striker but just not suited for our style.

      As much as I’d like Griezmann, such a calibre of player would never accept a step down to Arsenal. He will be off to Bayern, Juve or PSG.

    Hahaha.
    As if Utd would swap any of those for a 30yr old!
    Take the £50mil and like it. Martial is worth far more and is nearly a decade younger!

  3. Quantic Dream says:

    I have a better idea, Man Utd keeps their deadwood and hands us a £60M payment instead. £50M should be the bare minimum if push comes to shove.

  4. Innit says:

    Don’t sell our top talent to our rivals

  5. Alee says:

    Why are we even considering selling to man utd? If he doesn’t want to sign sell him to Barca. I’d rather collect 40m from Barca than sell him to United for 60m

  6. Oldjoseph negusa says:

    Don’t sell him please arteta

    Will Man Utd agree to exchange their now revived from the lost regular goals scoring form in the PL top striker Anthony Martial with Arsenal for their top striker PEA but who is aging? But irrespective of his aging, what I think it should be taken in cognizance that PEA scores more goals regularly in the PL than AM does. But however, the current season:s campaign is yet to come to an end as the campaign has been put on hold by the Covid-19 pandemic outbreak. So, it will be good to wait to know what will finally happen in terms of goals scoring tally in the PL when the season’s campaign has resumed and ends that’ll enabled us to know who has won the golden boot between Jamie Vardy ogre Leicester FC, Rashford of Man U if he recovers and PEA of AFC. But if Man U will not exchange their AM for AFC’s PEA but still wani to sign him and probably AFC too don’t want to do any exchange players deal but preferred straight cash deal . I think Man U will then have to meet Arsenal asking price for their priced striker PEA before they can get him transferred from AFC to them in what I think should be in excess of £60m transfer fee for their proven regular PL 20 goals per season PEA who next summer will still have a year and half to run on his deal at the club.

    You won’t get any of those players. Arsenal can’t afford them and none are leaving United. You’d get Matic or smalling, maybe Jones and like it

  9. Loose Cannon says:

    AFC will look for some 30 year+ deadwood on 150+ K/week in return for our megastar as was done earlier.History says we took Sylvester, Mkhitaryan from them and gave them RVP, Sanchez in return.
    Unless there is a drastic change in AFC hierarchy and their mindset nothing will change on matchday results.

    The Mancs can sod off!! Auba is worth more than 50m…. and I don’t want any of their players!

    1. Sue says:

      And besides, not exactly a step up leaving us for them is it???

  12. Sue says:

    Cracks me up the way some Manc fans actually believe this is happening!! Why oh why would Pierre go there? If he is to leave us (which I hope isn’t the case) he should set his sights so much higher….

    1. Loose Cannon says:

      Sue, I feel he wants a good wage deal, so he might Sign for the one that offers him the best. Hope he chooses abroad rather than Pool or ManU.I don’t think Arsenal will give him 300k/ week. Do not want any of their players for they offer us their rubbish and our board seems blind.
      Transfer him for a good fee ( I don’t mind Everton , their good at giving us cash) and let Mikel Sign good outfield players.

      1. Sue says:

        I’d rather he went abroad….the thought of him signing for the Mancs, spuds, scousers, chavs makes me want to hurl…..

  13. Uwot? says:

    If Arsenal have learned any lessons from past dealings it is we don’t need any more msn u rejects at the expense of strengthening a hated rival.ship him off to the Catalan bandits or PSG.enough said.
