Real Madrid are understood to be eyeing up Arsenal forward and Gabon international Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang in a summer move that would be a sensational one to say the least.
Pierre-Emerick has been an instant hit for Arsenal since his move to the club from the German outfit Borussia Dortmund in the winter transfer window of 2018, with the star bagging a hugely stunning 41 goals and 12 assists in 65 appearances for the club since then.
Since joining the north London outfit, Aubameyang has managed to prove himself as one of the EPL’s, and Arsenal’s, most lethal and dangerous players.
And it seems like his impressive performances for Unai Emery’s side have caught the eye of La Liga giants Real Madrid if the reports are to be believed.
According to Don Balon, Real Madrid are eyeing up Pierre-Emerick, with it even being claimed that the 30-year-old centre-forward is a ‘serious option’ for Zinedine Zidane’s side.
The report also claims that it’s going to cost Los Blancos around €100 million if they are to pry Pierre-Emerick away from the Emirates Stadium this summer, a move that just is not worth it when you consider who the team already have at their disposal, combined with the player’s age.
Real Madrid already have Karim Benzema and Luka Jovic as their striking options, thus the fans can’t really see any reason as to why the team would need to add another striker to their ranks in the form of Pierre-Emerick.
Given this, it will be interesting to see if the Galacticos end up making an official move for Gabon international and whether Arsenal will be prepared to sell should they do so.
