GUNNERS ‘WILL LISTEN TO OFFERS FOR 10 PLAYERS’
Arsenal would now be open to offers for TEN PLAYERS this month, including captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.
Gunners skipper Aubameyang did not sign a new contract with the North London team until September 2020.
But according to The Telegraph, the Gabon international – who tested positive for the coronavirus ahead of the season opener and has not appeared so far – is now considered one of the TEN players. for which Arsenal wishes to receive offers.
Other potential departures are Bernd Leno, Hector Bellerin, Sead Kolasinac, Ainsley Maitland-Niles, Lucas Torreira, Willian, Reiss Nelson, Eddie Nketiah and Alexandre Lacazette.
However, unlike some of the fringe players looking to be sold over the next week, Aubameyang’s sky-high salaries could prevent him from securing a move.
The 32-year-old earns around Â£ 250,000 a week so there are only a select number of clubs that could sign him on.
It was reported last week that Barcelona are considering a swap deal for Aubameyang, with ex-Liverpool star Philippe Coutinho heading the other way.
Arsenal are hoping to recoup some of the money they invested in the summer, with Arteta’s side currently at the top of the Premier League spending table.
