Paris Saint-Germain remain on alert for the potential signing of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, planning an approach for him if negotiations for Mauro Icardi fail.
Le10Sport report that Paris Saint-Germain are looking at both Mauro Icardi and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang as possible centre-forward signings this summer.
Icardi spent the season on loan with PSG, scoring 20 goals in 31 appearances. There are no guarantees they’ll end up signing him on a permanent deal though. If they don’t, they reportedly plan to move for Aubameyang instead.
PSG are keeping up-to-date on developments with Aubameyang, and they like the ‘value for money’ they’d get from a €40-50m deal for him. FC Barcelona are also in for the striker, whilst Inter Milan are likely to pull out over his salary.
As things stand, the Ligue 1 champions aren’t in negotiations with Arsenal. However, they plan to make decisions on the matter in the coming weeks.
PSG are one of few clubs you can realistically imagine paying a crazy fee for a striker this summer. With FFP rules potentially relaxing, their owners can freely invest, and they’ll need a new signing if Edinson Cavani leaves (likely) and Icardi returns to Inter.
There are still no reliable links between PSG and Aubameyang in the English media, though. Also, I doubt Arsenal will make any kind of decision before the season ends. For now, I’d just put a pin in this one.
