Arsenal set Aubameyang transfer price and consider Chelsea star Willian as his replacement
The Gabon international’s contract with Gunners will end next season and the player becomes a free agent. Arsenal wants to make a deal this Summer ahead of the possible exit of the player.
Gunners are in a dilemma over the striker Aubameyang. They don’t want a free transfer and expect some decent price from the in-form player. However, according to The Sun, Aubameyang has rebuffed all of the club’s efforts to extend his current deal. The basic price is fixed at around £30M and the player was valued for £50-60M.
In Emirates, Gunners camp is not satisfying the player in terms of team performance in the European stage. ‘The Invincibles’ are failed to qualify for Champions League this season and struggling to find the tournament berth next season. They are 9th in the league table.
The club is also facing financial panic along with the current market flaw caused by Coronavirus Pandemic. Before the pandemic also the situation was not good at Arsenal’s treasury. The lack of big games and instability of Unai Emery has influenced the ‘publicity’ of the team.
Mikel Arteta is now starting from the beginning and needs more time to get the team on the right track. Arteta has seen a correct replacement for Aubameyang in Chelsea winger. If Gunners can accept the demand from the Brazilian, he will go for it.
Barcelona is also finding a replacement for their 33-year-old striker Luiz Suarez in Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang. The Catalans can take advantage of money and bring the player to Camp Nou. If they can attract the Gunners management with a more convincing offer, the 30-year-old will do a ‘flip’ in Spain next season.
Aubameyang has bagged 20 goals from 32 appearances this season which makes him a quality striker of Europe. He is leading the line of Arteta with a stunning form which obviously attracted eyes into Emirates.
Willian’s shocking demand.
Mikel Arteta is looking for a replacement for the striker from Chelsea camp. The Brazilian winger will turn into a free agent this summer and want to switch the side after failed talks.
The player needs a three-year contract with the current wage demand and Blues are offering only a two-year extension. Also, Frank Lampard needs more experiments in his frontline across his current lineup.
Chelsea is rolling fourth in the table and eight points clear with ninth-placed Gunners. Willian is currently earning £120,000 a week at Chelsea F.C. He is interested in staying in the same town. A spell in Emirates is also in favour of this. But Arsenal camp is shocked by the condition that the Brazilian put forward.
Champions League demand
Aubameyang wants to play in Champions League which is possible with the Catalan side and almost possible with Lampard’s Chelsea. Lampard is wanting a challenging player who can partner with Tammy Abraham in the attack of Blues.
There are no other claims for Gabon international and moving this summer will be a nice choice for him before making a contract with Gunners on this inconsistent situation of the team.
Playing in a more promising club can add more gems to his personal profile. It is obvious that the player thinks an up-gradation of his current status looking at his consistency in scoring. The talks are going on in Emirates, Stamford Bridge, and Camp Nou. Gunners are waiting for a positive response from two sides by playing the ‘Gabon Ace’.
