Juventus ‘to compete with Barcelona and Inter Milan for Arsenal striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang but contract extension at the Emirates remains open’

  • Juventus have enquired about the situation of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang
  • The striker’s current deal with Arsenal is set to expire at the end of next season 
  • Inter Milan and Barcelona are also interested in signing the 30-year-old
  • But the possibility of extending his contract at the Emirates remains open 

Juventus are the latest club to enquire about the situation of Arsenal striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, according to reports.

The Gunners captain, who is yet to agree a new contract at the Emirates, has also attracted interest from Barcelona, Inter Milan, Real Madrid and Manchester United.

But le10sport.com report that the Serie A champions are keeping tabs on the forward and have requested information about his availability.

Juventus have enquired about the situation of Arsenal striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang

The striker’s deal runs out in 2021 and he has been linked with moves to Barcelona, Inter Milan

The striker’s current deal runs until 2021 and Arsenal run the risk of losing him for nothing if they are unable to convince him to agree new terms.

But the same report claims that the possibility of an extension remains open with the club still working on plans.

Barcelona and Inter Milan are the two teams to have been linked most strongly with the Gabon international. This could depend on the future Inter’s Lautaro Martinez, who is linked with a move to the LaLiga side.

The possibility of an extension with the Gunners reportedly remains open to the 30-year-old

Should he join the Catalans, Antonio Conte’s side could seek to recruit Aubameyang as a replacement but the Italian club would struggle to meet the forward’s wage deamands.

Mikel Arteta said last week that he was ‘pretty positive’ that the Gunners could reach an agreement with the 30-year-old despite interest from elsewhere.

Aubameyang has 20 goals in all competitions this season and is vital to Mikel Arteta’s hopes of competing for a place in the Premier League’s top four next season.

The club announced David Luiz had signed a one-year contract extension on Wednesday while Cedric Soares and Pablo Mari made their loan moves permanent.
