Arsenal have received their first known official bid for outcast star striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, according to the Mail, and it’s come in the form of Saudi Arabian club Al-Nassr.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s future in north London looks extremely uncertain, with a move before the end of the January transfer window looking increasingly likely – with the 32-year-old stripped of the captaincy and removed from the squad last month.
The report claims Arsenal are now ‘considering’ the offer from Al-Nassr, despite the seemingly low £7million obligation to buy fee, attached to an initial loan offer.
Aubameyang is on wages of £250,000-a-week until the summer of 2023, removing that from their wage bill would save Arsenal in excess of £20million.
Any transfer away from the club has become even more finely balanced after Aubameyang returned from African Cup of Nations duty to Arsenal with ‘cardiac lesions’, with medical tests ongoing.
