Jeremie Aliadiere says Arsenal has no decision however this summer to sell Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang-regardless of whether it’s at a cut-cost charge.
Gabon International is about to enter the final year of its deal in north London and an agreement is yet to be reached for negotiations on an expansion.
Barcelona, Real Madrid, and Inter have all been connected to the top scorer from Arsenal, who has scored 61 goals in 97 appearances since marking in 2018 from Borussia Dortmund.
Head coach Mikel Arteta said he wants to retain the 30-year-old at ‘all expenses,’ yet Aliadiere, who won the 2004 Premier League with Arsenal, demands that a failure to negotiate new terms with the productive forward leaves the club with no other decision yet to cash in.
“They have to sell him, 100 percent,” the Frenchman told Goal.
“We can’t continue losing players on a free spot. To be completely forthright, I can’t accept we have a top star again, our captain, heading into the summer with only a year left on his contract.
“At the point when he gets to two years, it has to be arranged for me. Last summer, he ought to have marked a deal or sold. Because when you get to one year left, there’s a distinction in a player’s brain. You can not let a player end up with one year left on his contract, particularly a player like Aubameyang. That’s not all right. What, at that point, would we sell him for with one year left? Arsenal is in the most noticeably awful position you can imagine because you have a top-quality player that assures you of 20-25 Premier League goals for a season that’s a free year to go. And, it’s going to Barcelona and Real Madrid yet when? So much would you presently pay for him? Anything associated with what on the off chance that you offer him last season. They may have asked for £100m.”
