No more worries, Arsenal striking option already says he is coming

The future of two Arsenal strikers, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette at the Emirates Stadium is uncertain with fears they could be having their last season with the club.

Aubameyang is currently in contract talks with the Gunners hierarchy and his demand seems to be unrealistic. He has requested for a £250,000-a-week deal and a 3 years contract which reports claim Arsenal are unwilling to pay.

He could therefore, be sold in the summer transfer window to cash in on him and avoid losing him for free.

Lacazette’s fate in Arsenal is also unknown following reports that he could be involved in a swap deal to Atletico Madrid for Thomas Partey to switch to the Emirates Stadium.

This makes the need for a striking option in Arsenal urgent with a major target, Wout Weghorst from Wolfsburg already coming out to express his desire to join the North Lindon outfit.

A Bild report claims that Arsenal are in contention for the player with Newcastle and the Bundesliga outfit has slammed a price tag of £31.54 million for the Netherlands international.

Should Arsenal find him worthy, replacing Lacazette and Aubameyang, if they leave will not be difficult especially after the player has made a come-get-me plea.

The 27-year-old striker scored 16 goals and provided three assists in the Bundesliga this season.
