Last weekend, Gabonese football association president Pierre Alain Mounguengui said that Arsenal striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang should consider his future at the club if he wanted to win something. He suggested that moving to a more ambitious side would help the 30-year-old forward add to his meager honors list.
With a year left on his contract, Arsenal is in something of a bind. They can offer Aubameyang the wages his talent deserves, but that is fraught with risk. He will be 31 in June, and the club does not want to be stuck with another Mesut Ozil. They may not want to risk a huge financial outlay on a player whose body may start to give out at any moment. Given the importance of pace to his game, the risk is that his potency could fade suddenly and dramatically.
Selling Aubameyang could offer the least troublesome option of an invidious selection of choices for Arsenal. Any buyer would have to take a similar gamble, though that has not prevented a list of prominent clubs being linked with him.
Real Madrid is the latest side to be linked to Aubameyang, Although Real Madrid is looking at signing Haaland and Mbappe respectively, the question now is how will Aubumayeng fit in?.
Barcelona and Chelsea are also interested in the signing of the Arsenal Striker, the question now remains, where will Aubumayeng go?
