Lacoste 2 years ago Liverpool, England 32 554 REAL MADRID are lining up a January bid for Arsenal striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang - and plan to offer Luka Jovic in a swap deal. The Gunners could be persuaded to sell the Gabon frontman, 30, in January as he will be worth much less next summer when he only has a year left on his contract. And Real president Florentino Perez has come up with a plan to offer 21-year-old Serbia striker Jovic and cash to land Aubameyang. Aubameyang has already scored 12 goals for the Gunners in all competition. But he has grown frustrated at the direction of the club - managerless since Unai Emery was sacked. Fans were also unhappy with him when he decided to leave the pitch during the Brighton defeat to have a toilet break, accusing him of a lack of professionalism. Duncan Castles' Transfer Window Podcast claim Madrid will try and tempt Arsenal with their player-plus-cash deal when the January window opens. But Perez will have to convince boss Zinedine Zidane, who would prefer to sign £342million Paris Saint-Germain striker Kylian Mbappe and Manchester United's £150m midfielder Paul Pogba. The podcast claims Real have spoken to Aubameyang's representatives as they search for striker replacements with Karim Benzema set to move to Lyon in a player-coach role and Gareth Bale likely to return to the Premier League next year.
