ARSENAL are looking to sell Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang for just £30million.

Mikel Arteta is desperate not to lose his 20-goal top scorer for nothing next year.

Arsenal are willing to let Aubameyang go for just £30million

The £60m Gabon striker is about to enter the final year of his Emirates contract — and has rebuffed all the club’s efforts to extend his stay.

Now Gunners chiefs appear happy to let him leave for half of what they paid for him, with the coronavirus pandemic slashing funds in the transfer market.

With the threat of a fourth successive season out of the Champions League looming, Arsenal have already agreed a 12.5 per cent pay cut with most of their players to tide them through the global crisis.

Now former Gunners midfielder Arteta is facing a major issue to overhaul his squad — and with a severely restricted transfer budget.

That has opened the door to Chelsea hero Willian making a cross-London move.

But the Gunners are now baulking at Willian’s contract demands — as he prepares to quit Stamford Bridge as a free agent.

Willian is understood to be demanding a three-year deal which matches his current £120,000-a-week salary.

Cash-strapped Arsenal are reluctant to tie themselves to such a long-term agreement for a player who will be 32 in August.

But Willian’s agent Kia Joorabchian has become an increasingly influential figure at the Emirates over the past year.

He also represents the Gunners’ technical director Edu — and negotiated the signings of David Luiz and the on-loan Cedric Soares.

Now he is looking to secure one final lucrative deal for a player who cost Chelsea £32m when he joined them from Russian club Anzhi Makhachkala back in 2013.

Willian has already rejected the offer of a two-year deal from Chelsea — and is also attracting interest from both Liverpool and Inter Milan.

But he is open to a move which would allow him to remain in London and could yet be open to lowering his demands to keep Arsenal interested.
