Can Nketiah replace Aubameyang as Arsenal's attacking lynchpin?

The 20-year-old has been tipped as a possible replacement for the Gunners' leading scorer, but is there substance there?

One of the great uncertainties of the coronavirus outbreak as it concerns football is the effect it will have on player contracts.

For loan players and players out of contract at the end of the season, their legal agreements would essentially make them free agents by June 1, a situation that could threaten the integrity of teams if league seasons extend beyond that date.

However, for players such as Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang who are out of contract in the summer of 2021, clubs are faced with a different sort of concern: they are being deprived of the final drips of utility from a prize asset on the books.
