Moneybags Paris Saint-Germain are deciding whether to bid £35m for Arsenal striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, according to reports coming out of France.
The Gunners dangerman who has hit 61 goals in 97 appearances since signing for the north Londoners in January 2018 is edging closer to an Emirates departure as the clock ticks down on his contract - with just a year left on his current deal.
Mikel Arteta could face a fight on his hands to keep his captain if the French champions believe they can land him this summer at a price far below his real valuation as suitors for his signature hover.
La Liga giants Barcelona have been linked with the 30-year-old Gabon forward, but Aubameyang could yet return to Ligue 1 after making his name with Saint Etienne earlier in his career according to French media outlet Le10Sport.
With Uruguayan stalwart Edinson Cavani set to leave the Parc de Princes on a free transfer this summer and Mauro Icardi returning to the San Siro with Inter Milan at the end of his loan deal, PSG are low on top quality attacking options.
The Ligue 1 side can tempt the former Borussia Dortmund striker with a weekly wage that far exceeds his Arsenal salary of around £200,000 a week- along with a substantial signing-on fee.
While Arsenal will want to recover the club record £56m they paid Dortmund for his services two and a half years ago, they cannot afford for Aubameyang to run down his contract and leave for nothing next summer - joining a litany of ex-players departing the Emirates without the club receiving a penny.
