Report – Arteta identifies Aubameyang replacement in La Liga

Mikel Arteta is already preparing for life without Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang as the Gabon striker remains out of the first-team picture at the Emirates.

The striker has been banished from the Arsenal first team and he might not return to the starting XI even if he is reinstated into the squad. states that Arteta is already eyeing a replacement for the former Borussia Dortmund man.

The report claims the Spaniard wants Youssef En-Nesyri of Sevilla to lead his attack next season.

The Moroccan has spent much of this season on the sidelines after suffering an injury early on.

He was in great form last season and attracted Arsenal’s attention at the start of this campaign.

He will look to get some momentum in the second half, which could earn him a move to the Emirates finally.

Just Arsenal Opinion

Auba has been one of the finest strikers in the Premier League since he joined, but his performances in the last two seasons have been terrible.

He is clearly living off his reputation now and Arsenal’s return to form in his absence might suggest he holds the team back when he plays.

He would most likely return to the group if no club signs him, but the club is smart to look for a replacement.

Ollie Watkins and Dominic Calvert-Lewin are two other strikers who could replace him at the Emirates.

  1. Why leave Emmanuel Dennis of Watford bwith PL experience or Arthur Cabral to go for En-Neyri? I don’t grt it

    1. I would be extremely careful with Emmanuel Dennis because he seems to be a very complicated character despite his good abilties. In Brugge he fell out with the Coach with some misbehaviour and going on loan to Cologne in Germany after was total fail as well. Brugge then couldn’t get rid of him fast enough and offloaded him to Watford. So i don’t know about him despite him being good atm.

    2. Cabral is playing in swiss league, no way near the experience you get from playing in Spain for team like Sevilla, if we have to compare the two.
      With that said, I would not take player who is injured for expensive fee, not him, not DCL. Wait to the summer, sometimes, they do not gain form easily after injury.
      Anyways, with Auba’s form and problems, Lacca and Eddie are 6 months away from exit, Balogun not yet ready, we may even need two strikers.

  2. No need to worry about who will be leading the attack next season.

    We should be focused instead on who will be leading the attack for the second half of this season. Next season will take care of itself especially if we finish in the top 4 and earn extra income from playing in Europe again.

    Arteta will either have to kiss and make up with Auba or go out and find a striker in January. Another attacking midfielder should be a top priority too.

  3. I agree with Denis but Yousef is an arsenal type of another version; why not Villareal, Benfica, Or Valencial Top notches Or even from France maybe!
