Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang Has Told Arsenal He Wants To Leave
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang wants to leave Arsenal and his entourage have reportedly told the club of his wishes.
According to journalist Ian McGarry, the Gabon international's agents have "made it very clear" that he does not wish to continue at the Emirates Stadium given the current position of the club.
Aubameyang has 18 months on his deal but at the Emirates but recently walked away from contract talks, such is his desire to leave.

Meanwhile, it's been reported that Olivier Giroud would be interested in heading back to Arsenal after struggling for game-time under Frank Lampard at Chelsea this season.
The Frenchman moved to Stamford Bridge as part of a transfer merry-go-round that saw Aubameyang join the Gunners from Dortmund and Michy Batshuayi move to BVB on loan.
Aubameyang has more than justified the club-record £56 million Arsenal paid for his services, having netted an impressive 56 goals in 89 appearances.
But with the former AC Milan man turning 31 next year, he knows he needs to be moving on if he wants to add to the two major honours he has won in his career thus far.
As for Arsenal, they may well be forced to let their talisman go in order to at least recoup some of the fee they splashed out to land him in January 2018.
