Real Madrid Eyeing A Summer Move For This Arsenal Forward: Right Fit For The Galacticos?
According to a recent report by the Spanish news outlet, Diario Gol (translated by the Sun), Real Madrid are lining up a move to secure the services of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang from Arsenal during the summer transfer window. The same source has also revealed that the Galacticos are eyeing the Gabonese forward as an ideal replacement for Gareth Bale who is expected to leave the club at the end of this campaign.
Aubameyang’s Incredible Form At The Emirates Stadium This Season
The 29-year-old has enjoyed a sensational campaign for the Gunners thus far after he put in numerous match-winning displays under Unai Emery’s tutelage during this season. Aubameyang has managed to win the Premier League’s golden boot award along with Liverpool’s Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah after the trio finished with a joint tally of 22 league goals each.
The former Borussia Dortmund frontman has featured in 50 matches for the North London outfit this term, scoring 31 goals while grabbing eight assists across all competitions. He is also vastly experienced at the international level having represented his nation in 51 matches while scoring 20 goals for them in various tournaments. Aubameyang is still going strong for his country and is currently the captain of the Gabon national team.
What Will The Gabonese Forward Add To Zidane’s Team?
The Arsenal talent primarily operates as a centre-forward but is capable of filling on either flank if required. He boasts blistering pace that can trouble any defender in world football. Aubameyang is one of the fastest players in the Premier League and is also an accomplished finisher in front of the opposition goal.
Will Aubameyang Be A Good Fit For Los Blancos?
The Laval born sensation has been a prolific goal-getter over the past few years so he would be an excellent fit for Los Blancos in the short-term. However, at 29, Aubameyang is getting closer to the twilight years of his playing career so there is a chance that he might slow down with each passing season from now on.
All in all, it would be a fantastic move for the Galacticos if they can find a way to bring the Arsenal striker to the Spanish capital before the start of the new campaign.
