Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang should join Manchester City if he chooses to leave Arsenal in the summer transfer window, according to Gunners hero Charlie Nicholas.
Aubameyang’s future at the Emirates is in serious doubt heading into the final year of his contract, with reports suggesting Mikel Arteta and co are ready to cash in on their star striker after failing to convince him to sign an extension.
Real Madrid and Barcelona are reportedly interested in prising the 30-year-old away from England, while Manchester United are also believed to be eyeing up a potential deal.
But Nicholas has identified City as Aubameyang’s most attractive option, admitting he could replace veteran forward Sergio Aguero at the Etihad.

“Would he get into Liverpool’s side? No.

“Manchester City could be an option so that he could replace Sergio Aguero, but the only alternatives are two giants of Spain, but I do not think he is that type.
“If it was City or the two giants, I would accept it, but the rest I cannot be convinced that he would be guaranteed game time.
