Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang news

Aubameyang to be sold by Arsenal

Arsenal have reportedly pulled out of contract talks with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and are prepared to sanction his sale during the summer transfer window.

The Gabon international has 14 months remaining on his existing deal with the Gunners and there has been no progress with regards to a contract extension.

According to The Express, the north London side have hit an impasse in the contract negotiations with the striker after declining to hike his £200,000-a-week wages as part of the renewal.

The same publication claims that the club will now sanction his departure during the next transfer window and Inter Milan are leading the race to land his signature.

Manchester United, Chelsea, Barcelona and Real Madrid have also been linked with the former Borussia Dortmund man, who has netted 20 goals for the Gunners this term.

Meanwhile, Inter's pursuit of Aubameyang may lead to the departure of Lautaro Martinez, who has been earmarked as the prime transfer target for Barcelona.
