AC Milan need to strengthen their attack.
According to multiple reports emanating from England, Milan are considering a loan move for Arsenal striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.
The 32-year-old has been subject to interest from various clubs.
The Gabon international was signed by Arsenal in January 2018 from Borussia Dortmund for a fee of 63.75 million euros. He has a contract until 2023 with the club.
In 163 appearances, Aubameyang has managed to score 92 goals, and create 21 goals for his teammates.
His record for Gabon is also impressive. Aubameyang has scored 30 goals in 72 matches for Gabon at senior level.
The 32-year-old is one of the more likely players to be offloaded by Arsenal this winter and the list of suitors in the Gabon international continues to grow.
Stefano Pioli wants to sign a new striker and Aubameyang is one of the names at the top of his wishlist.
The Gabon international is thought to perfectly fit the profile of striker Pioli wants to target in the winter transfer window.
AC Milan are in the market for just a handful of statement signings who can improve the first-team.
The former Borussia Dortmund man provides a unique blend between a classic center-forward and the modern striker. His finishing abilities when in and around the box will come as a massive asset to Stefano Pioli’s side.
According to the report, “AC Milan are among the European teams who are interested in signing Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang. The Gabon striker is an outcast at Arsenal, having fallen out with manager Mikel Arteta over his discipline. Aubameyang was stripped of the club captaincy earlier this season. According to Sky Sports, Aubameyang is likely to leave Arsenal before the transfer window closes, and would prefer to stay in Europe. Milan have injury issues up front to both Olivier Giroud and Zlatan Ibrahimovic. They may be considering a loan move for Aubameyang until the end of the season.”
