Newcastle United have been linked with a surprise move for Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang during the January transfer window.

The Gabon international has missed the last five games for the Gunners. He has been dropped by manager Mikel Arteta following a disciplinary breach.

The 32-year-old has also been stripped of captaincy, and Sport claims that he could head for the exit door over the coming month.

Aubameyang has been linked with a move to Barcelona lately, but the club appear to be prioritising a deal for Edinson Cavani.

Meanwhile, Newcastle have emerged as shock contenders to land his signature after their takeover from a Saudi-led consortium.

The new owners have the financial power to meet his demands, but it is unclear as to what kind of deal could be proposed by them.

The Magpies suffered a double blow yesterday with Callum Wilson and Allan Saint-Maximin picking up injuries against Manchester United.

Both players could be sidelined for a number of weeks. The hierarchy could be tempted to spend big on a marquee striker next month.
