Newcastle and Arsenal face transfer battle for Gabon ace

St Etienne forward Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang

Inter Milan have taken the lead in the race to sign Gabonese ace Pierre-Emerick Aubemeyang, advancing past Newcastle and Arsenal, according to talkSPORT.

The striker has no shortage of admirers across Europe, after his remarkable performance this season, tallying 17 goals and 8 assists in 30 appearances for St Etienne.

The 23-year-old, who accounts for 33 per cent of the team’s goals, has been pursued by Newcastle, who are looking for forward reinforcements after Demba Ba’s move to Chelsea, and Arsene Wenger’s side.

But Italian newspaper Tuttosport declared that not only are Milan in the hunt for Aubameyang, but they are hopeful of closing out a deal for the star, despite their earlier offer of €10m being rejected by St Etienne.

Tottenham and Chelsea are also reported to have shown interest in the Gabon international, as well as Borussia Dortmund, AC Milan, Roma and Paris St Germain.

Aubameyang, however, expressed his preference to play for an English club, reported Inside Futbol.
