Arsenal has received a loan bid from Al Nassr in Saudi Arabia for Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, with an option to buy for roughly £7 million. Following a disciplinary transgression last month, Aubameyang was deprived of his Arsenal captaincy and went home early from the AFCON due to heart difficulties.
About the Loan Offer
Before going to Africa, he was training alone, and his future at the club appears to be in jeopardy. However, Al-Nassr, a Saudi Arabian club, has provided Aubameyang and Arsenal with a route out of their shattered relationship.
The Gunners’ hierarchy is understood to be debating the proposal right now. For a player of Aubameyang’s stature, the sum would be insignificant, but it would free up £250,000 a week from Arsenal’s already bloated wage bill.
He has 18 months left on his contract, and leaving now would save him about £25 million in pay. After experiencing ‘cardiac lesions’ that prevented him from kicking a ball for Gabon, the athlete is currently undergoing tests in London.
Latest Update About Aubameyang
Following his early withdrawal from the Afcon, Arsenal’s former captain has returned to London. The Gabonese FA said the striker was suffering from heart issues after testing positive for Covid-19, therefore he was sent back to Arsenal. On Wednesday, Arteta provided an update on the situation, confirming that Aubameyang was still undergoing precautionary checks.
He’s in London currently, and he’s going through some examinations since we haven’t received any clarity from the Gabonese national team regarding the reasons for his return, according to Gunners boss. It is their responsibility to ensure that the player is safe, healthy, and free of any medical difficulties.
Gunners boss also added that to avoid any perception that this is the case because the athlete has never had that problem in the past with anything they’ve done with him. So, let’s take it one step at a time, perform the necessary examinations, and ensure that the player’s health is in the greatest possible shape. They’ll then watch what occurs.
