Report: PSG Want to Replace Cavani With Arsenal Striker

Earlier in the January transfer window, Paris Saint-Germain’s UEFA Champions League opponent made a bold move by signing Erling Haaland. Now, it’s PSG’s turn to make a big splash.

According to FootMercato (via Daily Mail), Les Parisiens could buffer the impending departure of Edinson Cavani with Arsenal FC striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

The report indicates that PSG manager Thomas Tuchel would prefer to reunite with his former striker from his days at Borussia Dortmund instead of bringing in Islam Slimani or Luka Jovic, which was previously reported.

Aubameyang, who has 16 goals in 26 appearances for the Gunners, is approaching the final year of his contract (expires June 2021) and is likely looking for a way out as Arsenal continues to struggle.

Like Mauro Icardi, PSG would be looking for a loan deal with an option to buy for the 30-year-old forward before the close of the January transfer window.

Aubameyang has spoken highly of Tuchel in the past and has been linked to a move to PSG in previous seasons as well. Tuchel has also stated that the Gabon international will always remain in his heart.

Aubameyang is familiar with Ligue 1 from his time with AS Saint-Étienne so a deal isn’t that far-fetched, but, PSG will face competition from FC Barcelona who has also expressed interest in the Arsenal striker.

Of course, Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta may decide to keep arguably his best-attacking player and hope he can sell him on his vision of the club for the future instead of selling him outright to another club.

    😂 Yeah of course. First he says that he is the captain and wants to guide the club back to success and the rumours about him leaving are bullshit, two weeks ago. Than some stupid journalist came up with the story, he will be going to Barca. Then the Barca rumours stopped. Now he will go to PSG. 😂 Sorry, but some rumours are just more ridiculous than I can handle. 😂

    Abu is not going any where as per his remarks of leading the Arsenal club to where it used to be and these ridiculous issues of Abu leaving to Barcelona and PSG is far away from facts. Abu will hang his boot at Arsenal and he is already 30 and the next few years of his career will be at Arsenal. My point to these journalist is that please tell us something that at least contains 1% of truth to dilute with other 99% false to make your stories facts.
