Arsenal could reportedly sanction the surprise sale of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to Manchester United, provided the Red Devils are willing to match their asking price.
The Gabon international was the leading scorer for the Gunners last term with 31 goals and he was also jointly handed with the Premier League Golden Boot.
Despite this, the club could not secure the aim of qualifying for next season’s Champions League and that has meant that they would be working with a budget of just £45m for the summer.
According to Metro, the shortage of transfer funds could tempt them to accept the shock sale of Aubameyang this summer but only at the right price.
United have been regularly linked with the marksman in the past few days and Metro suggests that they would need to part with at least £56m to convince the Gunners into selling their leading marksman.
That sum represents the same fee which was paid to Dortmund for the striker in January 2018, and a sale could help in boosting the Gunners’ budget for the ongoing transfer window.
