Aubameyang rejects other clubs offers and De Bruyne backs next Gunners transfer



Aubameyang rejected other clubs

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang continued his fine run of form by scoring Arsenal’s goal in their Community Shield success against Liverpool.

It was his fifth Wembley goal in little over a month, and his 10th in his last 10 matches.

Reece Chambers has taken an in-depth look at Saka’s efforts against Liverpool, which suggests the young man is becoming an essential component of the new-look Arsenal.

Saka could be one of Arsenal’s key players in 2020/21 as Arteta looks to secure a top-four finish in the Premier League.

But what about in midfield?

It has been strongly rumoured that Thomas Partey of Atletico Madrid is on Arteta’s wish list, but if that deal can’t be completed, how about Houssem Aouar from Lyon?

Aouar was certainly impressive in Lyon’s recent run to the Champions League semi-finals, and one Manchester City midfielder has identified him as the French club’s best player.
