Inter are in pole position in the race to sign Arsenal striker Pierre Emerick Aubameyang, according to a report from today’s paper edition of the French media outlet Le10Sport yesterday.
The report details how the 30-year-old Gabonese striker, who is contracted to the Gunners until 2021, isn’t interested in signing a contract renewal with the club and is looking for Champions League football.
Inter coach Antonio Conte is a fan of Aubameyang and would be happy to bring him to Milan should Argentine striker Lautaro Martinez be sold to Barcelona in the summer.
The only obstacle is the player’s high salary, the report continues, and currently the Nerazzurri won’t match that number. The two clubs are already in contact to discuss a possible deal.
Aubameyang has made 32 appearances across all competitions so far this season, for a total of 2711 minutes. In that time, he has scored 20 goals and provided one assist.
