Aubameyang would be difficult to replace due to Arsenal's finances - Alan Smith

Former Arsenal forward Alan Smith feels the club might not have enough money to fund the replacement of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang in the event that the Gabon striker leaves.

With his Arsenal contract expiring in June 2021, Aubameyang’s future at the club has been a subject of speculation.

Manchester United, Barcelona, Inter Milan and lately Liverpool have all been rumoured to be after the Gabon international, who has scored 17 Premier League goals so far this season.

Smith feels that if the Gunners captain leaves, it would be hard to find someone to fill in his shoes and expecting Eddie Nketiah or Gabriel Martinelli to be fitting replacements for Aubameyang would be asking for too much of the youngsters.
