Arsenal will listen to offers for Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.
The striker has not played for the club for almost a month after being stripped of the captaincy for disciplinary breaches.
What seemed at first like being a temporary exclusion from the squad has since become something of a permanent exile, and the 32-year old was made to train alone, before the club allowed him to leave early to join up with the rest of the Gabon squad ahead of the African Cup of Nations.
Aubameyang is the club’s highest earner, having agreed a new deal worth #350,000 a week at the start of last season, but now they are ready to let him go, especially as his goal output has significantly declined since signing his new contract.
Newcastle are one of the clubs that have been linked with a move for him, with suggestions they are looking to take him initially on loan, with an option to buy in the summer.
