According to a recent report by Diario Madridista, Real Madrid have been offered the opportunity to acquire the services of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang from Arsenal this summer. The same source has also stated that the Gunners will prefer to sell the Gabonese forward to a Spanish club rather than let him join one of their Premier League rivals before the start of the new campaign.
Aubameyang’s Excellent Goal-Scoring Record For Arsenal This Season
The Laval-born talent has banged in a lot of goals for the North London outfit over the past 18 months which has made him a fan-favourite at the Emirates Stadium. He has registered 20 goals and one assist in 32 matches for Mikel Arteta’s side this term in all competitions which highlights how prolific he has been for the Gunners this season.
Aubameyang has averaged 2.5 shots, 0.8 key passes and 0.6 dribbles per game in league football and the UEFA Europa League this season (stats via whoscored). His overall numbers have been far from impressive as he has struggled to create enough chances for his teammates in the final third despite not being shy of testing the opposition keeper.
The former Borussia Dortmund forward has also earned 51 senior caps for the Gabonese national team, netting 20 goals for his homeland in the process. Aubameyang is currently the skipper of Gabon and is expected to play a crucial role for his nation in the upcoming 2021 African Cup of Nations.
What Are The Ex-AC Milan Striker’s Best Attributes?
The 30-year-old is currently one of the most feared centre-forwards in the Premier League as he can score goals consistently at the highest level. He tends to come alive when he is given time and space inside the opposition penalty area but needs to be more productive in terms of creating chances for others in the final third. Father time is gradually catching up with him so he might lose a yard of pace from his game in the coming years.
Is Aubameyang The Right Fit For Los Blancos?
However, at 30, the Gabonese marksman still has a lot to offer before he decides to hang up his boots in the future. Real Madrid can benefit from acquiring a proven centre-forward like Aubameyang as he will provide some much-needed competition for Karim Benzema, who has often been Zinedine Zidane’s preferred choice to lead the charge up top.
He will not only add more goals to the Madrid attack but will also improve Zidane’s squad depth which might help them compete for multiple trophies in the future. The French head coach will also have the option to tweak his formations and rotate his first-team players more frequently if they can find a way to lure Aubameyang to the Spanish capital this summer. Hence, the Gabon international will be an excellent short-term fit for Los Blancos but only if he can continue scoring goals at such a high rate at the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium next season.
