There are disappointed faces here in the Football Transfer Tavern as it is claimed by talkSPORT that despite both Arsenal and Newcastle United being interested in Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, it is a Serie A side who are leading the chase for the forward.
In news that commentators and writers will be forever thankful for, the man with a nightmare name looks to be seriously interesting Inter Milan after Tuttosport claimed that the Nerazzurri were locked in negotiations with Saint-Etienne after a 10 million euro bid was already turned down by the club.
After netting 17 goals in 30 games this season the 23-year-old Gabon international has seen his reputation skyrocket and is now one of the hottest properties in football. The Magpies are still on the lookout for a worthy forward after losing Demba Ba to Chelsea in January and given the massive price tag slapped on former player Andy Carroll’s head it comes as little surprise that the club are looking elsewhere.
Arsenal meanwhile are again on the search for a centre forward and given they are not guaranteed a place in the top four, are still preparing to lose out on their top targets such as Stevan Jovetic should they refuse to move to a club playing in the Europa League.
Will the Premier League duo miss out on Aubameyang? Rate this rumour below.
