Report: Inter Milan and PSG emerge as contenders to sign Arsenal star

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is likely to become a wanted man in the summer.

Inter Milan and PSG have both joined Barcelona in the race to sign Arsenal striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang this summer, according to FC Inter News.

The Gabonese striker could leave in the summer with just one year left on his current deal at the Emirates Stadium.

With the 30-year-old keen to play in the Champions League again that could see him head for the exit door in the summer.

He is one of Arsenal’s most important players and with massive clubs circling it doesn’t look ideal for the Gunners.

Arsenal want to recoup £50 million for the fearsome striker, a sum that would surely allow the club to sign a suitable replacement.

In 97 appearances for the club, he has scored a pretty remarkable 61 goals, 20 of which have come during the 2019/20 campaign.

This season, the striker also has an assist to his name and that came during a 3-1 win over West Ham United.

 

Spotrac claims that Aubameyang is paid £200,000-a-week by Arsenal and that sum wouldn’t be ideal for the club if a Champions League place isn’t secured.

Both Inter and PSG are on course for Champions League football next season, giving them more flexibility over the size of contract they could offer.

Aubameyang has captained Arsenal since Mikel Arteta arrived at the club and his departure would represent a huge loss.

Aubameyang has recently maintained that he is happy at the club but it seems certain he will depart if a return to the Champions League isn’t secured.

If Arsenal don’t tie Aubameyang down to a new deal they do risk letting him leave for nothing at the end of the 2020/21 campaign.

Having seen Aaron Ramsey depart in a similar fashion, the Gunners will want to avoid a repeat.
