Newcastle want Arsenal outcast Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang – Sports Africa

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang could become the first marquee signing for Premier League moneybags Newcastle United.

Newcastle are reportedly interested in signing the Arsenal outcast on loan before completing a £20million summer deal.

According to the Mirror, the relegation-threatened Magpies have approached the Gunners about taking the 32-year-old striker for the rest of the season including an option to make the move permanent.

Aubameyang was stripped of the captaincy by boss Mikel Arteta last month for an alleged breach of discipline and his days at Arsenal are all but over.

The Gabon star, who is now away on Africa Cup of Nations duty after Arteta allowed him to leave the Gunners early for the tournament as there was little chance of him figuring in the squad for Saturday’s clash with Manchester City, which Arsenal lost 2-1.

He hasn’t figured for Arsenal since the 2-1 defeat at Everton on December 6.
