Price for replacing Aubameyang is a £150 million
Arsenal has been warned that it could cost £150 million ($180 million) to replace Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang. The leading scorer of Arsenal dropped out of the contract in the summer of 2021, negotiations on the extension were postponed from the beginning of the season. Mikel Arteta expressed his desire to save the 30-year-old striker at any cost, but history has shown that the Gunners may be tempted to cash out if Aubameyang does not agree on a new deal and does not allow him to leave for a free transfer. However, Bacary Sagna – who saw Robin van Persie as an Arsenal player sold at Manchester United – is adamant that he cannot be allowed to say that the North London club must pay what Aubameyang wants him to stay on location.
Arsenal needs Pierre-Emerick
“He cannot go now, because Arsenal is on the path to building something strong,” Sagna admitted. “They cannot afford to lose him. If they have to pay him, then pay him because if they want someone else of its quality, they cost £150 million.” So don’t spend £150 million, spend £50 million and give it to him. It is the same as van Persie, and I think you should learn from this situation. “Pierre deserves it. I am not saying that because of his name or because he scored several goals. Auba is the best striker in the league. “Sagna added:” A year ago, someone asked me if he was a world player, and I answered no. Some people were not happy with my answer, but he had the potential to be better and be more clinical.
He’s dangerous as a defender
“After a year, yes, he’s world-class, because every time he scores a goal. Even his movement is different.” He is clinical, and he is so dangerous. As a defender, you do not want to be face to face with this type of player. “The fact that Aubameyang is about to enter the last year of his current deal weakens Arsenal’s control over the situation, however. Just as it did with van Persie in 2012. However, Sagna believes the club handed Aubameyang the captaincy at the beginning of the season to show that they want him to lead a new era, and now he says that they have to pay the striker – who was associated with Barcelona – what he is worth.
The club should build around him
“Pierre is a machine, he scored many goals for the team,” said a former defender of Arsenal. “If you want to build something, it should be around him.” He is a captain, which means they want him to lead. “Today, the stadium is the club’s stadium. It is always full, and they make money. Of course, there are other ways of spending money, but I would rather pay him than try to find a solution with him, than lose him, and then spend time trying with someone else, and finding someone else is very, very difficult now. “It’s like playing chess. You have to be smart. He deserves it, give it to him.”
