Arsenal tipped to cash in on wantaway Aubameyang

Jamie Carragher has tipped Arsenal to cash in on Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang with the forward seemingly wanting to leave the club.

The 30-year-old is currently second to Jamie Vardy in the race for the Premier League’s golden boot, the striker having netted 12 goals in the league so far this season, seven more than any other Arsenal player, his goals accounting for 48% of the Gunners current tally.

Aubameyang managed to win a share of the Golden Boot in his first full-season, netting 22 times in the league in 2018/19, though reports in recent weeks have suggested that the Gabon international is ‘desperate’ for a move away from the Emirates after the clubs continued struggles.

Despite the striker consistently being the clubs top marksman since his arrival in the Premier League two years ago, Jamie Carragher has admitted he ‘wouldn’t be surprised’ if Arsenal decided to flog the wantaway forward as Mikel Arteta looks to rebuild the clubs fortunes.

“You look at up front and with the age of Aubameyang, he’s got a year to go,” Carragher said on the Sky Sports Christmas Transfer show.

“I wouldn’t be surprised if they cashed in on Aubameyang if somebody offered them big money.

“That’s even though he’s one of the top strikers in the Premier League.

“They do still have Lacazette there also but it’s a big job at Arsenal.”
