Owen tips Nketiah and Martinelli as Aubameyang replacement at Arsenal

Liverpool legend Michael Owen believes Eddie Nketiah and Gabriel Martinelli have the qualities to replace star-forward Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang at Arsenal.

The 30-year-old has 15 months left to his current contract and is yet to agree to a new deal with the Gunners despite insisting his future lies at the Emirates Stadium outfit.

The Gabon international has been the driving force behind Arsenal success in recent seasons, scoring 61 goals in 96 appearances, including 20 in the current campaign.

His impressive form has generated interests from a number of European clubs, with Barcelona, Real Madrid and Manchester United reportedly keen to sign the forward in the summer.
