The Gabonese forward is reportedly a target for the Real Madrid boss, but only if he can’t sign Liverpool star Sadio Mane or Borussia Dortmund’s Erling Haaland.
Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane has informed Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang of his summer transfer plans, telling him that he is, indeed, a target for the La Liga giants, just not a priority signing.
The Los Blancos boss has told Aubameyang that he is only a plan B, he would prefer to bring in the younger Erling Haaland, of Borussia Dortmund, and Liverpool’s Sadio Mane, according to Express Sport.
The Gunners striker is on the radar of several clubs across Europe as he enters the final year of his contract at the Emirates.
The Gabon international has already scored 20 goals in all competitions for Mikel Arteta’s side this season, and Zidane is looking to bring in a forward to the Santiago Bernabeu next window, to replace the so-far lacklustre Luka Jovic, who has only been able to bag himself two goals all season in his inaugural campaign.
Haaland has scored 12 goals in 11 games across all competitions this season, while Mane has scored 18 in 38 matches.
Should Real make a play for Aubameyang they will have to fend off interest from Manchester United and Barcelona who, too, have their eye on the Arsenal ace.
