Inter Milan linked with shock Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang move
There has been intense speculation surrounding the future of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang in the last period.
According to the football transfer rumours in British media, Inter Milan are linked with shock Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang move.
The Gabon international joined Arsenal from Borussia Dortmund for a fee in the region of 64 million euros in January 2018. His contract expires in the summer of 2021.
This season, Aubameyang has scored 17 goals and provided one assist in 28 appearances for Arsenal.
His record for Gabon is also impressive. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has scored 20 goals in 51 matches for Gabon at senior level.
The report details that Antonio Conte feels his attack currently lacks some bite and that he could strengthen this summer. Conte is a long term admirer of Aubameyang and believes he can get the most out of the Gabon international.
Inter are in the market for just a handful of statement signings who can improve the first-team.
The Gabon international provides a unique blend between a classic center-forward and the modern striker.
According to the report, “Arsenal striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is reportedly being lined up for a surprise move to Inter Milan this summer. According to Gazzetta via AS, Inter are eyeing a move for the Gunners current top goalscorer Aubameyang, with the report suggesting that the Gabon international is worth £58m – although the Serie A giants could get him cheaper given that his contract runs out in the summer of 2021. Inter chief Antonio Conte is said to want to pair the 28-year-old with former Manchester United frontman Romelu Lukaku to form a lethal partnership that could dominate Serie A for years to come. Aubameyang, who has scored 14 goals this season, has also been linked with Barcelona and there have been rumours that Mikel Arteta is ready to offload some of his top stars to create funds for a massive overhaul.”
