ARSENAL have reportedly ended negotiations with club skipper Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang as they accept they will have to sell him at the end of the season.

The 30-year-old has just one year left on his deal at the Emirates, leading to speculation the Gunners will cash in on the Gabon international in the summer.

It is believed that the North London side will demand a fee in the region of £50million, with the ex-Borussia Dortmund marksman having no shortage of suitors.

According to the Express, Arsenal have decided to pull the plug on contract talks with the player late last week after failing to make a breakthrough in negotiations.

Aubameyang is claimed to want an upgrade on his £200,000-a-week wages, but due to the Covid-19 crisis, funds are limited with the club said to be unable to offer him am improved deal.

All signs point towards an exit with Mikel Arteta’s side now willing to listen to offers to avoid losing him on a free transfer in 2021.

There had been hope that Aubameyang was close to signing a new contract after his father urged him to commit his long-term future to Arsenal on social media.

The Express say that Inter Milan are leading the race to secure his services and are prepared to offer him whatever he wants in order to snare him away to the San Siro.

Antonio Conte is understood to be desperate to land him as he looks to provide competition for Romelu Lukaku next term.

But Inter aren’t the only player keen on landing Aubameyang who has banged in 61 goals in 97 appearances for Arsenal.

SunSport exclusively revealed in March how Manchester United are eyeing up a move for the striker with a centre-forward believed to be a priority for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

And Arsenal’s London rivals Chelsea are also understood to be interested with the Blues closely monitoring his situation.

A move to Spain could also be on the horizon for Aubameyang, with both Real Madrid and Barcelona said to be admirers of the former Monaco and Lille loanee.
