Aubameyang is expected to leave Arsenal in the last week of the January transfer window but is willing to continue his career in Europe, reports Sky Sports UK.
Milan have terminated the loan of Pietro Pellegri, signing Red Star starlet Marko Lazetic. However, both Olivier Giroud and Zlatan Ibrahimovic have been struggling with injuries, so the Rossoneri are considering their options.
The Diavoli are reportedly among the clubs interested in signing Aubameyang in January, but the striker’s salary is a difficult obstacle to overcome.
The 32-year-old is on a €15m-a-year deal at the Emirates Stadium, while Milan’s highest earner is Zlatan Ibrahimovic, with a salary of €7.5m.
Aubameyang’s Arsenal’s contract expires June 2023 and other big European clubs, such as Juventus, Sevilla, Marseille and PSG, are reportedly interested in securing his services.
Aubameyang played in Milan’s youth sector in 2007 and wanted to return to San Siro ten years later, but the Serie A giants did not make an offer to sign him from Borussia Dortmund, so Aubameyang signed for Arsenal.
