Arsenal transfer target reveals his £10m price tag

Published 5 Comments

Arsenal transfer target Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has revealed a bid in the region of £10m could be enough to tempt St Etienne to sell him this summer, according to talkSPORT.

The St Etienne forward has been linked with a move away from Ligue 1 in the summer – Arsenal and Newcastle are thought to be keen to bring him to the Premier League.

And the Gabon international thinks a £10m bid could secure a transfer.

Aubameyang said: “If people are talking about me then I am not aware of it. But if someone offers £10m to the club, I don’t know if I’ll go or not.

“I am calm because I still have two years on my contract to go.”

The 23-year-old forward has been in fine form for his Ligue 1 club, hitting 16 goals in 23 league appearances so far this term – only Zlatan Ibrahimovic has more in the French top flight.

Aubameyang was brought up in France and represented the French under-21 side on one occasion but he now plays his international football for Gabon.

Arsenal have a strong record of signing players from French football, with Mathieu Flamini, Abou Diaby, Armand Traore, Samir Nasri and Emmanuel Adebayor all joining Arsenal from the professional ranks in France in the past.

But Newcastle, Arsenal’s main competitors for the signing of Aubameyang, also have an exceptional French scouting network – the north east club have bought Mathieu Debuchy, Yohan Cabaye, Moussa Sissoko and Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa in recent seasons. 

The report claims Fiorentina, Borussia Dortmund and Paris St Germain are also interested in Aubameyang.
