ARSENAL will listen to offers for Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang – but a move to either Manchester United or Liverpool seems unlikely.
Sun Sport reported yesterday that the Gabon star had reportedly “said yes” to a summer switch to Old Trafford.

However, 90min claim neither United or Jurgen Klopp’s Reds are interested in the 30-year-old hitman.
Aubameyang won the golden boot his first full season in the Premier League after scoring 22 times for the Gunners last season.
But after missing out on the Champions League, Arsenal boss Unai Emery is desperately looking at ways to boost his limited £45m transfer funds.
The Spaniard has pleaded with his Emirates chiefs to break the bank to sign Crystal Palace superstar Wilfried Zaha.
However, selling one of his current players remains his best option of bolstering his war chest.
Now the latest report claims Emery is ready to consider offers for his top goalscorer.
But they state the talk of a switch to United is wide of the mark as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is only interested in signing young homegrown talent.
They secured the £15m Daniel James from Swansea and are set to confirm the arrival of Aaron Wan Bissaka from Crystal Palace in the coming days.
Liverpool have also been touted as a possible destination for Aubameyang as he played under Reds boss Jurgen Klopp at Borussia Dortmund.
But 90min claim Liverpool would only step up their pursuit if they allowed either Mo Salah or Sadio Mane to depart – which is highly unlikely.
Aubameyang is desperate for Champions League football but appears set for another Europa League campaign with the Gunners unless a buyer can be found.
Arsenal forked out £54million to Borussia Dortmund for the hotshot 18 months ago.
And after his exploits in front of goal, where he’s scored 41 goals in 65 matches for the Gunners, they would be looking to recoup a similar fee.
