Emerging reports hint that the English Premier League outfit Arsenal might have found a good replacement for Gabon international Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang ahead of the summer transfer window should he refuse to sign a new deal.

The former Borussia Dortmund forward has been on the negotiation table with his employers over his future with terms yet to be agreed which means he would be sold this summer in order to avoid losing him for free.

It is now reported that Celtic forward Odsonne Edouard is the player that has proven that he has the quality to replace the Gabon international at the Emirates Stadium.

Odsonne Edouard has attracted a number of suitors, having impressed this season with 22 goals before the start of the pandemic that brought an end to the league.

A former Celtic manager John Barnes believes Odsonne Edouard is the best player that can step into Aubameyang’s shoes without any doubt.

Howbeit, the North London outfit is still making efforts to convince Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang into signing a new deal with the club as manager Mikel Arteta hopes to build the attack around him.

A number of clubs, including Barcelona and Real Madrid, are already on the wait with a bid for Aubameyang if he refuses to sign for Arsenal.
