Arsenal captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s agent has been holding meetings about a potential transfer in recent weeks, according to Football.London‘s Chris Wheatley.
The website’s well-informed Gunners’ correspondent reports that Aubameyang’s representative has been in Italy and Spain for talks, but his most recent trip was to Paris, suggesting there have been conversations with PSG.
It is believed that these meetings were held before Aubameyang’s latest disciplinary breach, which led to the 32-year-old being left out of the squad for the 3-0 win over Southampton at the weekend.
Wheatley’s latest update raises big questions over the club captain’s commitment to Arsenal, which was already in doubt following the incident last week.
The big problem is that even if Arsenal wanted to offload Aubameyang in January, there is no one who could afford his wages. The only way a departure would happen is if they loaned out the Gabonese international and heavily subsidised his salary.
