Here at the Football Transfer Tavern we love nothing more than a good ‘come and get me plea’ and given that one of Newcastle United’s and Arsenal’s targets has just issued one according to talkSPORT, we assume that so will they.
Both clubs have been watching Saint-Etienne striker Pierre-Emerick Aubmeyang and they are not the only ones. The player has scored 16 goals this season in only 23 appearances for the club and given there are still games left to play he has plenty of room for an improvement on this already impressive figure. That has lead to Arsenal tracking the forward and of course Newcastle who it seems aren’t inclined to look anywhere else but to France and Ligue 1 when scouring the transfer market for new talent.
Not only are the English sides looking at the Gabon international but Paris Saint-Germain, Fiorentina and Borussia Dortmund have also been sniffing around meaning that there will be more than a little to do in order to land the player who himself noted that there is a £10 million price tag on his head.
Aubameyang claimed: “If people are talking about me then I am not aware of it. But if someone offers €12 million to the club I do not know if I’ll go or not. I am calm because I still have two years on my contract to go.”
