Real Madrid have reportedly entered the race to sign Arsenal captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang ahead of the summer window, and are set to offer The Gunners a swap deal – and Arsenal supporters have reacted on Twitter.
Aubameyang, 30, has continued his stunning form in front of goal this season – scoring 20 goals in 32 league and cup appearances for the Gunners. That is despite Arsenal’s inconsistent form, and a change in manager.
However, Aubameyang – who was appointed captain of the Gunners midway through the season – has just over 12 months on his contract left to run. It has seen a whole host of European heavyweights become interested in Aubameyang’s signature.
The Mail claims Manchester United want to secure a Robin van Persie-like deal for Aubameyang, while the report also states Barcelona and Paris Saint-Germain are interested. 90Min have also reported that Chelsea and Liverpool are interested.
However, the latest report claims Real Madrid have entered the race. According to Spanish outlet Diario Madridista, Real have made contact to propose a swap deal for Aubameyang – including Gunners loanee Dani Ceballos in a deal.
The Mirror have reported that Real value Ceballos at £36million but it is believed that he could now be included in a deal for Aubameyang. Gunners fans have responded to such a move on Twitter.
If it’s 30m plus Ceballos it’s a done deal for me

Perfect for all parties. Auba gets his dream move to Real Madrid and hopefully Raul manages to get Jovic part of the deal

I would be down for Ceballos + £40m

I’d take ceballos plus 40 mil. His potential is sky high and auba is on last year of contract. Would be worth 75 mil imo

I wouldn't say Ceballos' potential is sky high, but he definitely has a lot of it. At his worst he is the first midfielder off the bench. Dani+40M for Auba is an amazing deal. Auba will be 31 in the summer and on the final year of his contract.
