Arsenal Have Napoli Striker On List of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang Replacements

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has been tipped to move out of Arsenal during the summer transfer window and Manchester United are one of the clubs who are said to be interested in signing him.

The Gabon global has just over a year left on his current contract with the Gunners, and there is yet to be any official word of a potential extension for the forward.

Gabon forward has been in a good form this season in front of the goal and is the second-highest scorer in the Premier league behind Leicester's Jamie Vardy.

According to 90min, the Reds have shown interest in the Arsenal superstar, who could move on at the end of the season.

Merson added on the similarities between Aubameyang's situation and that of a previous deal done with United: "The Arsenal fans won't want to see another top striker depart for Old Trafford, that's for sure, but the Robin van Persie situation was a bit different".

"They are crying out for someone who is going to score them 20 to 25 goals, and that's what Aubameyang can bring", he added.

"Do they give him £300,000-a-week?" It's a huge problem and not a new one.

Former Real Madrid president Lorenzo Sanz passes away
Sanz claimed a place on the Real Madrid board in the mid-1980s, when the president was Ramon Mendoza. One of the best, most courageous and hard working people I have seen in my life.

"Look, I think Aubameyang is a tremendous player", Moreno said. He's almost 31 and by the time he's 34 he's not going to be the same player.

'I'm not saying United won't win things, but you can't assure me of it.

Aubameyang has scored 49 Premier League goals in just 74 appearances for Arsenal, whilst he has notched 61 in 96 in all competitions during his time in England.

"You couldn't help but be impressed with their performance and if they were to sign Aubameyang and they also got someone like a Jack Grealish, are they big players?"

"It would take you straight back to the Ozil scenario and if you do spend all that money on him and you don't get into the top four it's not money well spent. They are getting better but it's not ambitions, it's the money".

"There's also the danger of giving him big money, just like they did with Ozil, and then every other player wanting the same".

"It's a really hard decision and it will all come down to how the club weigh it up".
