Arsenal forward Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is a summer target for Real Madrid, according to reports in the Spanish press.
Manager Zinedine Zidane has drawn up a shortlist of players he would like the Spanish giants to sign with Chelsea’s Eden Hazard, Liverpool’s Sadio Mane, Juventus’s Paulo Dybala and Aubameyang all named as possible options.
The Gabon international is said to have a valuation of €75m (£65m) but fans on Twitter are not taking the transfer rumour seriously, with many believing it would take ridiculous money for the club to even think about selling their top star:
85 mill + Varane and Asensio. We will think about it then.

This won’t happen but can we get 3 of their players in exchange and in case they would need more, Mustafi to help them in whatever job they can offer him?

We aint afraid of Madrid no more. They passed it.

Hope there’s no truth to this. Auba has stated in the past of his dream (I think grandfather’s too) to play for real Madrid

Arsenal need to keep our quality players. We aren’t going to be great again selling our best players.

The only way I’d consider selling Auba or Laca is if we were offered coutinho money

100 million plus Varane and Isco with a 10 million buy back clause and maybe we’ll think about it

Put mustafi on top and I’d take £75 million

Aubameyang has been in fantastic form for the Gunners this campaign, having scored a hugely impressive 31 goals in 50 appearances. His 22 in the Premier League meant he shared the golden boot award with both Mane and Mo Salah.
The 29-year-old will be hoping to add to his season’s tally when Arsenal face Chelsea in the Europa League final later this month.
