As many as six clubs have been credited with an interest in ex-Arsenal captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, as the player continues to be shunned by his manager Mikel Arteta. 

The Gabon international was sacked as Gunners skipper in December last year, and hasn’t featured for the club since a defeat to Everton around the same time.

He had travelled to Cameroon to represent Gabon in the African Cup of Nations, but has since been sent home with reports suggesting that doctors have discovered an irregularity concerning his heart.

With his time at Arsenal seemingly all but over, Arteta has been tasked with finding potential suitors for the 32-year-old, and a number of European clubs have been identified.

According to The Mirror, six clubs from across Europe have shown an interest in the former Borussia Dortmund man, who has been training alone since his demotion for a disciplinary breach.

Aubameyang is wanted by a number of clubs in Europe

Juventus, AC Milan, Sevilla, Paris Saint-Germain, Marseille and Barcelona are named as the teams holding an interest in the striker, who has been prolific ever since a breakthrough season with St. Etienne in 2011-2012.

The biggest obstacle in the way of the Gabon international’s departure is undoubtedly his eye-watering wages, and it has been suggested that the Gunners may have to continue covering some of the cost of his pay in order to offload him.

A move to Saudi Arabia had been touted, with Al Hilal willing to pay the striker’s £350,000-per-week wages on a season-long loan deal, however Aubameyang has since rebuffed interest from the club and Al Nassr.

The forward, who has scored 92 goals in 163 games for the London side, signed a big-money contract extension in 202o, and is now tied to the club until the summer of 2023.
