Al Hilal to ‘initiate loan move for Arsenal pariah Aubameyang and pay full £350,000 salary before PERMANENT move’

Saudi side Al Hilal want Arsenal pariah Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang on loan – and are ready to pay his £350,000-a-week salary in full, according to reports.

The 32-year-old has been heavily linked with a move away from the Emirates after falling out of favor under MIkel Arteta after being stripped as captain.

Aubameyang is reportedly already on the table with a loan offer from Al Nassr, with an obligation to sign him permanently for £6.7million.

And now their Saudi rivals Al Hilal have reportedly joined the race to lure the Gabon international to the Middle East.

According to the Daily Mail, Al Hilal are also looking to loan the player out in the Gulf nation, where he is ready to pay his full £350,000-a-week salary.

The outlet claim that they will cover his salary is seen as an attractive offer for Arsenal.

They even state that the club have put together a package to turn his potential loan into a permanent stay this summer.

It has been said that Aubameyang and his team will now consider Al Hilal’s proposal.


As well as interest from Saudi Arabia, European clubs are also eyeing a January swoop for the former Borussia Dortmund marksman.

Sky Sports reporter Dharmesh Sheth revealed at least FIVE teams love the centre-forward.

He tweeted: “Several European clubs are interested in signing Aubameyang. AC Milan, Juventus, PSG, Marseille and Sevilla among them.

“Al Nassr’s loan offer is still on the table. Arsenal will listen to the offers.”

Aubameyang is back in England after returning to Arsenal early after the Africa Cup of Nations after suffering heart anguish.

But he announced he was in great shape as he gave a fitness update in an Instagram post.

It read: “Hi guys, I’m back in London to do some more checks, and I’m very happy to say my heart is doing great and I’m in perfect health!!

“I really appreciate all the posts over the past few days and have already come back to it.”
