An offer is on the table for Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang as Arsenal put up nine players for sale.
Nine out at Arsenal?
Fresh from their FA Cup final win over Chelsea, Arsenal are plotting their moves in the transfer market this summer, with the Daily Mail reporting Alexandre Lacazette and Hector Bellerin could be made available for the right price in a bid to boost funds. The other seven names on the list are Sokratis, Matteo Guendouzi, Lucas Torreira, Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Sead Kolasinac, Shkodran Mustafi and Rob Holding, while the club appear resigned to the idea Mesut Ozil will run down the final year of his contract.
Some surprising names on the list, some not so, but for Arsenal and Mikel Arteta it’s all about building momentum from a cup run featuring victories over Manchester City and Chelsea, forgetting about duff performances against Aston Villa (and Watford in truth) and making the right noises in the transfer market. That starts with keeping Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang. Worry about everything – and anybody – else after.
Auba offer on the table
Speaking of, Arsenal will offer their FA Cup final hero a three-year deal worth £250,000-a-week, according to the Mirror. Aubameyang has been challenged to become an Arsenal legend by head coach Mikel Arteta, who hopes to have sold his vision for the future to the Gabon international. Aubameyang is in the final year of his contract and talks have so far stalled over a new deal.
