Get rid of the salary of 350,000 pounds (400,000 euros) a week that he received Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang It represents a relief for the finances of the ‘gunners’, who even so have paid some 8 million euros, according to English media, to the Gabonese striker to accept the letter of freedom and let him go to Barcelona.
However, this decision regarding Aubameyang has left Arteta with few options in attack. The DT only has Alexandre Lacazette and Eddie Nketiah as pure forwards. Neither of them has been an undisputed starter during their time at Arsenal.

Lacazette has accumulated five goals in 22 games, in addition to having provided four assists, while Nketiah has played much less, which is why a departure on loan in winter was rumored, and he has played eleven games with five goals scored.
The added problem is that ‘Laca’ ends his contract in five months and since January he can negotiate with other clubs.
Meanwhile, his renewal with Arsenal has been stalled for months because at 30 years old and after five seasons in London he has not yet established himself as a starter. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, featured in Barcelona, it’s history.
The defeat in the winter market by Dusan Vlahovic, who ended up joining Juventus in Turin, has left Mikel Arteta in the lurch, who will have to fight for the Champions League positions with fewer offensive options than his rivals from Tottenham Hotspur, Manchester United and West Ham United.
With the added pressure of not being able to stay out of Europe for the second consecutive season. The only thing that works in their favor is that at this point in the campaign they are only alive in one competition, the Premier League. (EFE)
