Arsenal to offload Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang?

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang news

Aubameyang could leave Arsenal this summer

Arsenal could consider parting ways with club-captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang at the end of the campaign.

The Gabon international signed a fresh three-year deal on club-record wages last summer, but he has struggled this term with only 14 goals.

According to The Mail, the north London side are planning a rebuild this summer, and they could consider Aubameyang's exit.

The Gunners are currently out of top-four contention, and they will need to win the Europa League to qualify for the Champions League.

If they fail to do so, they may need to recoup funds for their summer transfer business, and will reportedly sanction the depature of Aubameyang.

The 31-year-old has been absent for the past few matches as he has been building up his fitness after recovering from malaria.

He is likely to return for the Gunners when they face Villarreal on the road in the first leg of their Europa League semi-final tie on Thursday.

The Gunners go into the game after a disappointing 1-0 loss to Everton. Bernd Leno gifted three points to the Toffees with his blunder in goal.
