Arsenal receive Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang bid as they continue clear out

Arsenal having clear out

Arsenal are continuing to revamp their squad in a major way this January, with loan moves sanctioned for Folarin Balogun and Ainsley Maitland-Niles being completed last week.

And now, Sead Kolasinac has also been let go, with the last 6 months of his contract torn up in order for him to join Marseilles on a permanent deal.

Meanwhile, Pablo Mari looks set to leave on a loan move to Serie A side Udinese in the coming days.

This clears out many of the fringe options in Mikel Arteta’s squad, except for one.

The plight of Aubameyang

6 weeks ago, Pierre Emerick Aubameyang was Arsenal’s talisman and club captain.

Now, stripped of the honour and exiled from the first team, the Gabon star has been sent home from AFCON early following potential heart problems after recovering from COVID-19.

Meanwhile, Arsenal are open to offers for him, if at the very least to shift his hefty wages from the books.

And now, such an offer has come in. As per James Benge of CBS, Saudi club Al Nassr have made an offer to loan Aubameyang for the rest of the season, with an obligation to buy him in the summer for 8 million euros.

And while it represents a major loss on the 58 million pounds Arsenal shelled out for the man in 2018, for a 32 year old out of favour with the club, it may be hard to get much more.
