Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang Offered £300,000-A-Week Contract To Quit Arsenal
Arsenal face a huge battle to keep Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang after he has been offered a mega deal to quit the club this summer.
The prolific striker has received a £300,000-a-week contract from a Chinese Super League team according to The Times.
He's currently earning close to £190,000-a-week so a switch to the Far East would significantly increase his wage package.
A host of clubs are believed to be keeping tabs on Aubameyang including Shanghai SIPG, who have made an £80 million bid to sign the 29-year-old.
Aubameyang was subject to interest from both Guangzhou Evergrande and Tianjin Quanjian before he eventually signed for Arsenal in January 2018.
He was close to joining Guangzhou Evergrande in a reported £62 million transfer during the 2017 summer transfer window.
However, he moved to the Premier League outfit for a club record £56 million.
Aubameyang has two years left to run on his current contract with Shanghai SIPG prepared to fork out a huge sum of cash to secure his services.
The Gabon international has been lethal in front of goal since moving to England. He bagged 10 league goals in the 2017/18 season after joining in January.
He then chipped 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.
Your Goal of the Season winner...
...congratulations, @Aubameyang7 :clap:

Despite his goal-scoring heroics last season, Arsenal failed to secure a top four finish and they lost the Europa League final to London rivals Chelsea in humiliating fashion.
Will Aubameyang swap North London for China? Watch this space.
