Why senior figures at Arsenal are not keen on Aubameyang joining Newcastle

Why senior figures at Arsenal are not keen on Aubameyang joining Newcastle

Aubameyang out in the cold

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang found himself in hot water at the back end of 2021 due to a disciplinary breach.

It was later explained that Aubameyang was dropped due to a late return from a trip abroad.

It was then confirmed by Arsenal that the striker had been stripped of the club’s captaincy.

As a result, Aubameyang went on to miss Arsenal’s last six Premier League matches, though this stretch includes his departure to link up with Gabon for the African Cup of Nations.

Regardless, the former Borussia Dortmund man appears to remain out in the cold, and it has been reported that Arsenal are willing to let the forward leave the club in January.

Why Arsenal are not keen on Aubameyang joining Newcastle

A number of teams have been linked with the attacker amid his issues at the Emirates, including Barcelona and Newcastle.

Now, though, a report from the Daily Star has provided some insight into why Newcastle may not be able to land him.

The report mentions interest from both Barca and Newcastle, claiming that the former have a long-standing interest in Aubameyang, with it added that Gunners chiefs have checked in with the La Liga side to see if they would like to take the forward off their books this month.

Elsewhere, a potential loan move to Newcastle, who would be willing to pay the bulk of the African’s £300,000-a-week wage, is also mentioned.

However, it is added that senior figures at Arsenal fear Aubameyang remaining in the Premier League could prove an unwanted sideshow for the club, amid their push for a top-four finish.
