Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang Removes Arsenal From His Bio And Profile Picture On Instagram
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has appeared to drop a worrying hint regarding a potential transfer away from Arsenal amid interest from China.
The 29-year-old's subject to intense transfer speculation. He's been offered a whopping £300,000-a-week contract to quit Arsenal this summer.
And following Shanghai SIPG tabling a lucrative contract and an £80 million bid to sign the striker, Aubameyang has removed Arsenal from his bio and profile picture on Instagram.
His social media activity sent Arsenal Twitter into meltdown. Here's some reaction from Twitter:
The Aubameyang Instagram situation is strange. Losing him wouldn't be a nightmare as he has massive holes in his game as long as we replace him adequately. We should get around £70m if we did sell him, so I guess roll on signing Carlos Bacca.

Aubameyang still has two years left on his current deal with Chinese Super League sides prepared to fork out a huge sum of cash to secure his luxurious services.
He was on the verge of moving to China before eventually sealing a switch to Arsenal from Borussia Dortmund in January 2018.
During the 2017 summer market, Guangzhou Evergrande nearly signed Aubameyang for £62 million.
But a transfer failed to materialise as the Gabon international completed a club record £56 million move to Arsenal.
He's been prolific since moving to England. He scored 10 league goals in the 2017/18 season after joining in January. He then weighed in with an impressive 22 league goals last season as he shared the Premier League Golden Boot with Liverpool duo Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah.
Aubameyang to China? Stay tuned.
