The Premier League’s biggest French importers, Arsenal and Newcastle, have received a huge boost in their bid to land St Etienne striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang after the player himself came out in the open about a possible move away from the Ligue 1. The 23 year old Gabon International has been a target for the English clubs for quite some time, with his return of 16 goals this season only adding to the hype surrounding the player.
Aubameyang revealed to TalkSport that he wasn’t in any hurry to leave St Etienne, his club since 2011. Originally from AC Milan, Aubameyang could never cut it out at the San Siro and had to spend multiple short spells away on loan before finally settling down at St Etienne. He still has two years remaining in his current deal with the French club but stated that the right offer could initiate a move: “If people are talking about me then I am not aware of it. But if someone offers €12million to the club I do not know if I'll go or not.”
