French giants step up interest in Arsenal star

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang news

PSG enter talks to sign Aubameyang

Paris Saint-Germain are reportedly in negotiations with Arsenal as they seek to land the signature of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang during the summer transfer window.

Aubameyang has less than 14 months remaining on his existing Gunners deal and he has yet to agree on a possible extension beyond that period.

As a result, he is likely to leave the club in the coming months and L'Equipe claims that Les Parisiens have already made contact with top Gunners officials.

The French outfit are set to lose both Mauro Icardi (on loan from Inter Milan) and Edinson Cavani when the season concludes and they are keen on signing at least one high-profile striker.

Aubameyang is currently at the top of their summer wishlist and they are confident of luring him from the north London side for a reported fee of around £34m.

Arsenal definitely value the striker at a higher price but they face the compulsion to sell him, with the risk of losing him for nothing at the end of next season.
