Milan and Juventus interest in Arsenal outcast Aubameyang

by | Jan 20, 2022 19:05

According to Sky Sports UK, Milan and Juventus are among the clubs interested in Arsenal outcast Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, who’d make a lot of sense for the Rossoneri due to his past.

The 32-year-old is still under contract with Arsenal until June 2023, but a series of incidents have seen him pushed to the sidelines of the squad by manager Mikel Arteta.

He recently contracted COVID-19 and was sent home by Gabon from the Africa Cup of Nations, although reports state medical tests in London found no cardiac irregularities.

Aubameyang’s huge salary makes even a loan tricky for Serie A clubs, but he has still been linked with Juventus and now Milan.

The forward started his career in the Milan youth academy in 2007, although he never actually got to play for the senior squad.

He had a series of loans at Dijon, Lille and Monaco until the €1.8m transfer to Saint-Etienne in January 2012.

Because Aubameyang is a product of the Milan academy, his presence would be a boost for the Rossoneri’s current squad, registered as one of their homegrown players.

The Diavolo are also looking for a centre-forward, as veterans Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Olivier Giroud are dealing with repeated injuries, while Pietro Pellegri is set to join Torino on loan with option to buy.

    File this one under things that will never happen. It might be poetic for him to come back but that’s about it.

    The older they get, the more likely they are to be linked with Milan.

    AC Milan retirement village now open.

    If this is true, Milan directors must be sick. How can you have 3 strikers with over 100 years old combined, and you dream of wining scudetto?

    Hahaha that certainly used to be true vogel. Although our current forwards could do with a dip in the fountain of youth, the rest of the team is young!

    Perhaps the clowns running Milan back when Aubameyang was sold for 1.6m should have just kept him? Then Milan might have had a striker for 10 years, instead of the long list of flops, stop-gaps, has-beens and failures they’ve signed since.

    Too late to bring him to Serie A now, as he’s turned into a waster. But Serie A loves signing epl rejects.

    @vogel.

    Milan has one of the youngest squads in Europe. Time to take up commenting on another sport, fella.

    The moment he signed that contract extension at Arsenal, his mind had surrendered to mediocrity and was really nothing like the player before. Ultimately chose money, flash gold plated cars and playing for a B level club in Arsenal. Poor fella also got treated with heart lesions, so its difficult to see it happening this month. Impossible to imagine Milan being able to pay even 50% of his wages. He’s on £350K a week.

    So Aubameyang is too old for Milan but good enough for Juve, PSG, Sevilla etc ?
