Juventus Set To Sign Arsenal’s £250,000-a-week Arsenal Centre-Forward

Juventus are keen on Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang as the centre-forward endures a difficult time at the London club. Massimiliano Allegri wants to add a goalscorer on priority in the winter transfer window, with the 32-year-old centre-forward on their shortlist.

Gabon international’s future at Emirates Stadium has plunged into uncertainty owing to the events of the last few days. The Spanish manager decided to drop Aubameyang from the match with Southampton due to a disciplinary breach, and he has been ousted for the subsequent two games with West Ham United and Leeds United.

There were suggestions in the media that Pierre-Emerick may not feature with the first team until the conclusion of next month’s Africa Cup of Nations. Gabon international was stripped of his club captaincy role last Monday, and his future has become the talking point among experts.

Arsenal and the Gabonese striker renewed ties at the start of the last campaign, with the centre-forward signing a deal until the summer of 2023, becoming the highest earner at the club in the process. However, Mikel Arteta might now look to offload him, and the recent banishment from first-team action might be an indication of what’s to come.

Now Juventus are reportedly keen on the African centre-forward to solve their issues in front of goal. In this campaign, Massimiliano Allegri has adopted a different approach than his usual tactics, emphasising attacking the counter. The Old Lady have only mustered 17 goals this term, which is uncharacteristically low for the quality of their squad.
