As per a report from Miguel Delaney of the Independent, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang leads a queue of Arsenal stars eyeing imminent exits from the club.
Gabonese hitman Aubameyang made the move to north London from Borussia Dortmund in January of last year.
And to say that the 30-year-old has since gone on to prove himself a hit would be putting it lightly.
All told, across 86 appearances in the red of Arsenal, Aubameyang has found the net a hugely-impressive 54 times, marking a ratio of just under 2 goals every 3 games.
In fact, his 50th strike for the Gunners, which came last month versus Wolves, saw ‘Auba’ etch his name into the history books of the capital giants:
🏟 78 Games
⚽️ 50 Goals
🎯 12 Assists

Aubameyang’s ever-increasing importance to the Arsenal cause, meanwhile, also saw the pacy attacker rewarded in November.
After former boss Unai Emery announced that Granit Xhaka had been stripped of the club’s captaincy, the Spanish tactician opted to name Aubameyang as his side’s new leader.

‘Desperate’ to move on
If the latest reports stemming from the English media this afternoon are to be believed, though, then Arsenal could soon be forced to make do without their star man.
This comes amid claims that Aubameyang is eyeing an exit from the club.
According to Miguel Delaney, the Gabonese hitman has become disillusioned with ongoings at the Emirates, and now ‘actively wants to leave’.
Aubameyang is reportedly eager to join a club who are in a better position to challenge for top trophies.
And it appears as though the former Dortmund man is far from the only individual considering his future in north London:
‘Alexandre Lacazette and Granit Xhaka are among others considering their future, but several sources say it is a feeling spreading among “half the squad”.’
One of Arteta’s first tasks will be handling that squad, because half now want outhttps://t.co/cMbQb1DKPB
