Arsenal striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has reportedly made it clear to Gunners he no longer want to remain at the Emirates this summer, according to new reports coming out of Spain.
The Gabon international is out of contract in 12 months' time and his long-term future at the Emirates is therefore in serious doubt.
Aubameyang has yet to play in the Champions League since his move to north London club in January 2018, during which time Arsenal have not made any progression.
And with Aubameyang turning 31 this summer, the striker is facing a decision which could define the rest of his career as he looks to add more silverware to a CV that does not boast the list of honours that might be expected given his talents.
But according to Spanish outlet Sport, Real Madrid have sounded out the possibility of signing the 30-year-old and claim the African has made it clear he wants to quit Arsenal.
They suggest the former Borussia Dortmund frontman could leave for around £43.5million (€50m) and that because of his goalscoring pedigree.
Barcelona are also fans of Aubameyang and although the Gunners star held talks with Barca back in January, Real are not put off, having themselves looked to sign him a few years ago, ultimately failing to secure an agreement.
Sport say Inter, Real, Manchester United and Paris Saint-Germain have all made approaches for Aubameyang, who has told Arsenal he wants to leave this summer.
It is claimed he will make a final decision on his future during June, although the current global coronavirus crisis could delay any potential switch.
