ARSENAL striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is being chased by Manchester United in a staggering £70million deal, according to reports.
TalkSPORT have revealed a very reliable source has told them Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is set to launch a first bid for the Gabon star, 29, to inject some raw pace to his team.
The Norwegian boss is less-than-thrilled with Romelu Lukaku – who looks set to join Inter Milan this summer.
Speaking on talkSPORT, Andy Goldstein claimed he had an insider who’d revealed Solskjaer’s interest.
Goldstein said: “I’ve got somebody on the inside… not at United, by the way.
“He has a hit ratio, quite high, of 75 (per cent). He’s told me quite a few (over the years).
“He has told me that United are interested in signing Aubameyang.
“I’m being told £70m first offer. It’s crazy money for a 29-year-old.”
Goldstein also said he’s been led to believe Solskjaer will be ditching Lukaku – who’s been unimpressive since his £75m 2017 move.
Speaking on talkSPORT, he continued: “Lukaku isn’t doing it for Solskjaer, I’m led to believe.”
Jason Cundy replied to the Aubameyang news, by adding: “Well that means Lukaku is moving on doesn’t it.”
Recent reports had suggested both Auba and strike-partner Alexandre Lacazette were set to pen fresh deals, in excess of £200,000-a-week.
But no contracts appear to have been tabled yet – with Aubameyang, who has been lapping up the Miami sun, far more likely to leave the club than Lacazette under Unai Emery’s leadership.
