The Newcastle team is interested in the services of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, and is looking for the possibility of a loan deal. The so-called "Magpies" have contacted the "Gunners" to talk about the 32-year-old's card.
According to reports in the "Mirror" in England, Newcastle is looking for a proven striker in the Premier League, and that will help the team avoid relegation, which is the only goal of the team this season. Meanwhile it has been revealed that Newcastle also prefers to have the option of finally purchasing the footballer's card, for the milionë 20 million figures, at the end of the season.
Looking at the latest developments at Arsenal, it seems that Aubameyang has his days numbered among the Londoners. The attacker was stripped of his captain's armband by coach Mikel Arteta, following a breach of disciplinary code. The player who is also active with the Gabonese national team, has not been active with Arsenal since December 6, in the 2-1 loss to Everton.
Currently, Aubameyang is gathered by his national team for the competition of "Africa Cup of Nations”. Arteta gave the player permission to leave the club earlier, as the chances of him being activated as a starter in the confrontation with Manchester City were almost zero. For many sports journalists, the January craze is key for Newcastle in terms of chances of survival in the Premier League. Two very important players of the team, Callum Wilson and Allan Saint-Maximin were injured in the draw with Manchester United. This adds even more to the need for a striker whom coach Eddie Howe can trust.
The latter was asked about Newcastle's objectives, this January market. Howe replied:
"We have to wait, at this moment I can not promise you anything. "January is a very difficult time to make plans, because everything changes so quickly."
