Auba has just one-year left on his deal and the North Londoners are desperate to renew their skipper’s contract.

Boss Mikel Arteta has even urged the club to get a deal done on more than one occasion in recent weeks.

However finances have often proved a stumbling block for the cash-strapped Gunners, particularly in the wake of the coronavirus crisis.

Emirates bigwigs had indicated they were hoping to sell players like Ainsley Maitland-Niles to fund a major offer to Aubameyang.

The club’s budget relies heavily on winning the FA Cup and more importantly, on nabbing a Europa League spot for next season.

It would be a major blow to the club’s finances if they were to miss out.

Barcelona, Inter Milan and Juventus are all monitoring Auba’s contract situation with keen interest, ahead of a potential summer swoop.

The LaLiga giants have made no secret of their desire to acquire a new forward this summer.

And while Inter Milan goal-getter Lautaro Martinez appears to be at the top of their wishlist, his £100million release clause is proving to be a stumbling block.

Aubameyang is virtually irreplaceable at the Emirates, having shared the Golden Boot last season and finding the net 22 times in the top-flight this term, which is just one behind top scorer Jamie Vardy.
