Arsenal are reportedly willing to listen to offers for captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang after a difficult season for the Gunners, according to the Telegraph (subscription required).
The Telegraph dropped the bombshell about Arsenal’s stance on Aubameyang in an in-depth piece in which they suggest strikers that Chelsea should consider signing in the summer transfer window.
Aubameyang has endured a very difficult campaign for Arsenal with some unfortunate illnesses, injuries and off-field controversies all leaving the ace inconsistent for the Gunners this term.
It’s especially disappointing for Arsenal as they started the season by handing the striker a new £350,000-a-week contract until the summer of 2023.
Matt Law has found for the Telegraph have found that there are ‘already murmurings’ that the North London outfit would listen to offers for the 31-year-old.

Aubameyang contributed 15 goals and four assists for Mikel Arteta’s side this season with the club’s captain making 13 of those goal contributions in the Premier League.
It’s no surprise to see that Chelsea are being mooted as an option for the Gabon icon, as the Telegraph note Frank Lampard’s attempt to bring the forward to Stamford Bridge last summer and the relationship he holds with current Blues boss Thomas Tuchel, owing to their fruitful Dortmund partnership.
Arsenal fans will be left shocked by this stance, with the Gunners in desperate need of building stability under Arteta after a disappointing season, the last thing they need is to sell their captain.
No, I’m not “shocked”. Actually, it’s prudent to consider moving him out. He’s overpaid, 31, locked in for another couple of year and on the downside. This is the thinking they should have had with many other players. They need to be ruthless in considering all options to improve, this is not a country club. Far too many of these self pitying clowns are far too comfortable.
100% correct,if he would concern himself with putting the ball in the onion bag and forget the number of fast cars and elaborate finishes on them that he possesses,everyone would be a lot happier.A classic case. of a fat cat finding life too easy.Get rid of him and bring in players who want to die for the cause and please do not hand out ridiculous contracts to people who want to take life easy,isn’t that right Willian?
Please sign 11 Kieran Tierneys!We want players who give everything for their club.no sleepwalking daydreamers who are prepared to collect their fat pay packets for no effort.
They should just take an offer
let him leave he is over paid,he is ageing give me young lads like daka
Auba is important to the team as he nurtures puts confidence in young players he helps the team and still scores couple of goals.He only lacks supportive players to top.I rate him best striker in europe than Neymar ,mbabe and others so given chance he can play past 35yrs
In your dreams,the way to give confidence and guidance to younger players is to produce it on the pitch and then they will try to emulate him
Mr Ken I don’t know what we’re you guys watching last season??hugely overpaid,overrated player who should never be given that fat contract!
Thank you for your contribution for time before,but you and mr useless Wilian are biggest flops last season!2 off you need to go for free,and I wold offer Airport transfer myself ,And take Edu with yo too!
How soon we forget as Arsenal fans! Remember when Arsene Wenger sold a certain Robin van Persie to Man United and what happened the following season? Remember the sale of Olivier Giroud to Chelsea and how he came back to bite us in the Europa League 2019/2020 final against Chelsea? In as much as I reckon that Auba has considerably dropped form (for whatever reason), selling him to a direct EPL rival doesn’t make sense. We could offload him to France, Spain, Italy, Germany, etc.; but certainly NOT to any club in the Premier League, for God’s sake. As fans this is very agonizing for us to see our former player return to do the damage against us.
We sold van Persie to Man U and he was very instrumental in winning the EPL title with them the next season. Similarly with Giroud who won the Europa League and Champions League with Chelsea in two seasons after his sale. If we must sell Auba, then it must be outside of England.
A hint to the wise…
Lacazette should be the fulcrum. He already acts as a mentor to the youngsters, is an example with his work rate. PEA should be allowed to look for new opportunities preferably abroad.
he has lost his aggressiveness after siging the mega deal, money has spoiled him already, no brighter future for him in arsenal, get him out if there is a real offer
We always sell our captains, it’s a safe bet that when we make a player captain they’re going to be leaving in a season or two. Not surprised by this in the slightest.
Arsenal needs to offload from the top.Auba had his issues but overally Arsenal needs to recruit betterso that they complement to guys like Auba,Saka,etc..Hopefully this summer we do better deals..
You are definitely spot on,i remember WENGER wouldnt buy any player if he reaches 30+ but we give ludricious contracts to the indispensable so called players and then wish we hadnt(Willian) now
Aubu remains classic bt he’s been playing with inexperienced kids with zero creativity.Edu shud b thinking or else part ways with arsenal cos he is doing stupidity at the club
