Arsenal make enquiry over signing of 29-year-old attacker with £110m clause

The Gunners appear to have made an enquiry over the potential signing of an attacker who could fill the void of Pierre Emerick-Aubameyang, in the event of the Gabon international choosing to leave the club this summer.

Arsenal may soon be forced into a deep search for a new striker with Aubameyang still seemingly reluctant to renew his contract at the Emirates stadium which only has a year left on it.

And according to the Mirror, the Gunners have made an initial enquiry over the availability of Valencia striker Rodrigo Moreno whom they have considered as a potential replacement for Aubameyang.

Rodrigo, who is being pursued by Arsenal, has a £110m release clause in his contract with Valencia, however, the same report is suggesting that an offer between £45 to £50m would be enough to land the striker.

So far this season, the 29-year-old forward has managed to score five goals and registered 11 assists in 28 appearances. Thus, it might come as a bit of a surprise that someone significantly less prolific than Aubameyang is being pursued as the Gabon star’s replacement.
