Might Arsenal Lose Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang?

Might Arsenal Lose Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang?

We are all aware of the fact that recruitment plays a critical role in football. The ability of a team to score top-tier players will often spell the difference between victory and defeat. This is why some analysts have grown a bit concerned about the lineup of personalities within the Arsenal roster. One perfect example of this state of affairs can be seen in the current situation associated with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang. This amazing striker has been a key element in regards to the success that Arsenal has experienced in the past. As rumours of his departure gain pace, many are left wondering what this might mean for Arsenal in the not-so-distant future.



Why Could He Leave?

This is the most logical question and it should be addressed before moving on. We first need to look at the facts. Not only is Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang the captain of the team, but he has been seen as representing a critical component in relation to its cohesion over the years. Furthermore, we also should mention that his current contract is set to expire at the end of next season.

Perhaps one of the most worrying signs for Arsenal is that he has attracted attention from a host of other well-known teams including Juventus, Barcelona and Inter Milan. If we consider that each of these organisations is willing to pay a significant amount of money in order to gain such a valuable player, the woes of Arsenal become very real indeed. However, there is a bit more than initially meets the eye here. Are there additional reasons why Arsenal might not be able to hold on to such talent?

A Track Record of Selling Valued Players

Anyone who regularly follows sports-related wagering sites such as SkyCity Online Casino is aware that this is not the first case involving Arsenal potentially losing powerful personalities. The bottom line is that owners were placing a significant amount of money into the club during the “golden years” associated with the 1990s. It therefore stands to reason that Arsenal attracted world-class players. Unfortunately, this strategy no longer seems to be present. High-quality recruitment levels are down and as many experts rightfully observe, it is nearly impossible to create a world-class team by selling its best players.

The other factor that will inevitably weigh into the equation involves if other clubs such as FCB are able to present Aubameyang with an attractive offer. We are not only speaking about money in this sense. At only 30 years of age, this player still has a few years remaining before retirement. It could therefore make much more sense to become involved with an organisation associated with a greater sense of forward momentum. Might we eventually witness Aubameyang donning the Catalan colours in the future? Only time will tell.

Nonetheless, his departure from Arsenal will represent a severe blow to the entire team. We are therefore left wondering if management can convince their captain to remain and if so, what what price?

    There is an old saying “success breeds success”. It is as simple as that. Aubameyang came to us at a time when we had paid good money for players and we had a £350k per week player in Ozil. We have a state of the art Stadium and we were ever-presents in Europe. What`s not to like? He fitted in immediately and he struck up a relationship with his companion striker, Lacazette. He earned a joint claim on the Golden Boot and he played with a smile on his face.

    Unfortunately our £350k midfield schemer has evolved into a tailors dummy illustrating his umbrella in the stands instead of earning his Billions. The shape of the team has dissolved and we have three distinctly disjointed sections in every game we play. Abo still plays with the odd smile because he enjoys playing and he does his shift in covering for our lightweight defence.

    Now he finds that he is 30 but he still gives full value for his wages. He is still world class so what does he do? If he waits to run his contract down, he will do that to honour the contract that he signed, but he will be 31 so it is probable that the biggest clubs who are interested in signing him then, will pay the wages he wants because they will not have to pay to buy his contract out. If we renew his contract by increasing his present wages to match Ozil, we will be falling into a swamp which only the most successful clubs can buy their way out of. If we keep him to the end of his contract, he will have no sale-on value and we may not have improved in the end. We need as much money as we can get to try to improve our midfield and defence to build a team which has a recognisable shape to it and in which each player understands his role in that shape.

    Just look at the present league table and it is evident that when we scrape through against Sheff. Utd. and we get beaten by Brighton that this team does not have the ingredients ( with or without Abo ) to be Euro contestants and even then we may not even do that this season. My view is that we have to sell him at the end of this season and buy two decent players in his place.
