Inter Milan in Italy are also keen on Aubameyang as per Calciomercato, via the paper edition of Tuttosport and Inter see the Arsenal star as an ideal replacement for Lautaro Martinez, should the Argentine leave.
However, according to L’Equipe, as translated by Get French Football News in the tweet below, it now looks as though the Gunners have offered the Gabon international a new contract in a late bid to keep hold of their top scorer.

Aubameyang’s contract at the Emirates runs up until 2021, so Arsenal are to either cash in on him this summer or the player could leave for free next summer should he not sign on a new deal with the north London outfit.
Nevertheless, fans can take some encouragement from AFC still fighting to keep hold of Aubameyang against all the odds.
