Newcastle ‘eyeing Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang transfer as part of a FOUR-MAN Arsenal raid in January’… with Toon chiefs also weighing up moves for Rob Holding, Mohamed Elneny and Eddie Nketiah amid their lack of football under Mikel Arteta

  • Newcastle are enjoying the first transfer window of their new Saudi ownership
  • The £300million Magpies are being linked with a host of world-class names
  • Reports suggest they are weighing up moves for four Arsenal players this month
  • Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is on their radar amid his current Gunners exile
  • Rob Holding, Mohamed Elneny and Eddie Nketiah are also of interest 

Newcastle are reportedly weighing up moves for four Arsenal players in the January transfer window, including sacked captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

The Magpies are expected to do major business this month following their £300million Saudi takeover back in October, which has provided them with a mammoth transfer kitty.

They are therefore being linked with a host of world-class players in the winter market, while a £12million deal has already been agreed to sign Kieran Trippier from Atletico Madrid.

And according to The Telegraph, via The Mirror, Newcastle are also eyeing up four Arsenal outcasts as part of a January raid on Mikel Arteta’s side.

The first of those players is said to be Aubameyang, who has been cast aside and stripped of the captaincy in north London after returning late from an authorised trip to collect his sick mother from France.

Given his relationship with Arteta appears unfixable, the Gunners will be keen to move their top earner on as quickly as possible in order to get his £350,000-a-week salary off their wage bill.

Rob Holding and Mohamed Elneny are also said to be targets for their new Saudi owners

Newcastle could therefore look to capitalise this month and make a beeling for Aubameyang, whose overall tally of 92 goals in 165 Arsenal appearances would still make him a stellar signing for the club.

They are also understood to be keeping tabs on another Gunners forward in Eddie Nketiah, who also looks to be on his way out of Arteta’s side after making just three league appearances this term.

Nketiah, 22, is out of contract this summer and has rejected the offer of a new deal at the Emirates, meaning Arsenal may be forced to cash in on their academy graduate while they still can this month.

Toon officials are also interested in both midfielder Mohamed Elneny and centre-back Rob Holding amid their lack of game time under Arteta so far in the 2021/22 campaign.

Elneny has only featured seven times in the league, while Holding has been afforded five appearance after falling behind Ben White and Gabriel in the defensive pecking order.
