Alexandre Lacazette Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang Arsenal

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang or Alexandre Lacazette will leave Arsenal this summer with Napoli now interested in the duo, according to reports.

Aubameyang has been tipped to leave the Emirates Stadium this summer, with his contract expiring in 2021 and the likes of Barcelona and Inter Milan interested in his signature.

With Arsenal having lost Aaron Ramsey to Juventus on a free transfer last summer, they are said to be wary of allowing the same to happen with Aubameyang, which may have led them to consider his sale when the transfer window re-opens.

There have been contrasting reports in recent weeks over the Gabon international’s future with some claiming Arsenal have pulled out of contract talks, while others reckon Aubameyang will now sign a new deal.

Lacazette, meanwhile, has only started 15 of Arsenal‘s 27 Premier League matches this season, scoring six goals, which has led to rumours that the France international could be on his way out of the Emirates Stadium this summer.

And now Napoli expert Ciro Venerato, speaking to CalcioNapoli24 (via Sport Witness), claims that Gennaro Gattuso would love to sign Lazio striker Ciro Immobile this summer but the €100m valuation could see them look elsewhere.

Aubameyang and Lacazette are the next two names on Napoli’s shortlist ‘after Immobile’ and Venerato adds that ‘one of the two’ will leave Arsenal this summer.
