Arsenal To Cash In On Two Stars To Keep Aubameyang At The Emirates

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is approaching the final 12 months of his deal with Arsenal and has so far stalled on signing an extension.

And now Mikel Arteta has been urged to offload the duo of Shkodran Mustafi and Henrikh Mkhitaryan to raise funds to finance a new deal for the Gabonese.

“Mikel Arteta wants five or six out and he wants that money to rebuild. If nothing more is in the pot, sell to rebuild,” Sky Sports pundit Charlie Nicholas told Sporting Life.

“If you are doing that as a financial package, you are not buying to replace Aubameyang. You can get rid of Shkodran Mustafi and Henrikh Mkhitaryan, who has been out on loan. This will all help to filter through, so there are easy things to do.

“My preference would be to offer Aubameyang what he wants. Everyone will flag up his wages.

“Give him what he wants, get rid of the deadwood, you have the kids, and it would not cost £200m to challenge for the top four once more.

“There are different ways of doing this, but more than anything, I would want Arsenal to renew Aubameyang’s contract for three or four years.
