Arsenal are in talks with PSG over selling Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang this summer. The Gabon international is out of contract at the end of next season. The Gunners could be forced to cash in on their top goalscorer or face losing him for free next summer.
And according to Spanish outlet Todofichajes, Arsenal are in talks to sell the striker to PSG.
They say the French side will pay around £34m for Aubameyang this summer.
Arsenal are willing to sell Aubameyang to raise funds for a summer rebuild.
A lot has been made of Arsenal potentially selling the forward this summer, with former Gunners ace Jeremie Aliadiere claiming Mikel Arteta has been left with no choice but to cash in on Aubameyang.

“They’ve got to sell him, 100 per cent,” Aliadiere said.
“Arsenal can’t keep losing players on a free. To be honest, I still can’t believe we’ve again got a top player, our captain, going into the summer only having one year left on his contract.
“For me, it has to be sorted when he gets to two years. Last summer he should have signed a deal or been sold.
“Because when you get down to one year left, in a player’s mind there is a difference.
“If I was Aubameyang and I knew I only had one year left, I would sacrifice one year of my career to go on a free and get paid a ridiculous amount of money and have all the clubs in the world chasing me. Who wouldn’t?

“That’s why I just think it’s wrong management yet again.
“It should be sorted at two years. You should not let a player end up with a year left on his contract, especially a player like Aubameyang.
“It’s not right. I just think players are playing on it, they keep letting negotiations drag on and the next thing you know, he’s just got one year left.
“And now, how much are we going to sell him for with one year left?

“Arsenal are in the worst position you can imagine again because you’ve got a top quality player who assures you of 20-25 Premier League goals a season who is one year away from leaving on a free.
“Or, he gets sold to Barcelona or Real Madrid and for what? How much can you expect for him now?
“Nothing compared to what if you’d sold him last summer. They could have asked for £100million.”
