Juventus make approach for Arsenal forward?

Aubameyang on Juventus radar

Serie A giants Juventus have reportedly made initial enquiries over the situation of Arsenal forward Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang ahead of a possible summer move.

The Italian champions are looking into a potential replacement for Gonzalo Higuain this summer and they have already been linked with a number of high-profile names including Napoli's Arek Milik.

Of late, Barcelona have been credited with an interest in signing Aubameyang from the Gunners but Tuttosport claims that they could face stiff competition from the Bianconeri.

Maurizio Sarri's side are planning to reshuffle their squad during the summer and they have been fancied to offload the likes of Adrien Rabiot, Aaron Ramsey, Miralem Pjanic alongside Higuain.

Aubameyang has emerged as a suitable target for them, considering he could be available for a reduced fee with his Gunners deal due to expire at the end of next season.

The Gabon international has been in a contract standoff with the club over the past year and he has yet to show any indication that he will commit his long-term future to the capital outfit.

The former Borussia Dortmund man has netted 61 goals from 99 appearances for the Gunners. He will be aiming to score his 50th Premier League goal in his 100th outing for the club tonight.
