Arsenal have set a £70million asking price for star striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang ahead of the summer transfer window, according to reports.

Aubameyang, 30, has been one of the Gunners’ most important players since signing from Borussia Dortmund in 2018.

The Gabon international has netted an impressive 57 goals in 92 appearances for Arsenal and was named the club’s new captain in December following Granit Xhaka’s sacking.

Despite his influence at the Emirates, Aubameyang has been strongly linked with a departure from Arsenal this summer, with his current contract set to expire in 2021.

The Gunners are struggling to agree terms with the forward over a new deal and may be tempted to cash in at the end of the season rather than risk losing him for nothing next summer.

Inter Milan are the latest club to express interest in signing Aubameyang and the Daily Express say Arsenal have responded by placing a £70m price-tag on his head.

Last week, Arsenal legend Paul Merson urged his former club to keep hold of Aubameyang, even if it means losing him on a free transfer in the summer of 2021.

‘If I was Arsenal I would keep him and tell him to give us what they can next season, get us back in the Champions League and then you can go for free,’ he told Sky Sports.

‘It’s hard to buy goals and this guy is a natural goal-scorer. It’s hard to buy that.’

Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta, meanwhile, revealed on Friday that the club’s planning for the summer transfer window had already begun.

‘We have to plan and we need to know the direction we want to head in and we need to bear in mind different scenarios,’ Arteta said.

‘I have to tell the club what we need, where we think we can improve and where we want to end.

‘And if we all end with the same thing, we put a plan together to try and execute it and make the process as short as possible.’

Arsenal are currently tenth in the Premier League – ten points adrift of the top four – and face Newcastle United on Sunday.
