Juventus are the latest club to express an interest in Arsenal striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.
The 32-year old was last week stripped of the Arsenal captaincy after the latest in a series of disciplinary breaches and, having been left out of the last two match day squads, is being left to train alone.
The club’s highest paid player, he has 18 months left on his current deal at the Emirates, and is due to depart to play in the African Cup of Nations for his country after Christmas (assuming that the tournament is still going ahead).
Now the Serie A club want to take him initially on loan, with an option to sign him permanently at the end of the season in June.
They face competition from Barcelona, who are also closely monitoring Aubameyang’s situation, although his current weekly wages of £250,000 are likely to be a stumbling block for potential suitors.
