Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is being linked with a shock Arsenal exit this summer as the Gunners try to raise transfer funds. The Gabon international, who impressed with 22 Premier League goals last season to share the Golden Boot with Mo Salah and Sadio Mane, could reportedly be allowed to leave the Emirates if the Gunners receive a suitable offer.

It would come as a shock to see the former Borussia Dortmund star being allowed to depart considering his fine campaign with Arsenal, but boss Unai Emery has been given a low summer transfer budget and is trying to find ways to increase his spending power.
The 30-year-old could command a transfer fee in excess of £60million, which is why Emery may be open to sanctioning his exit, and Chinese cubs Guangzhou Evergrande and Shanghai SIPG are both believed to be interested. Arsenal are in the race to sign Crystal Palace winger Wilfried Zaha but need to raise funds to try and buy him with the Eagles wanting in excess of £80million for the Ivory Coast international.
