Arsenal striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has landed himself in hot waters with the Gunners, and the 32-year-old has been stripped of his captaincy following disciplinary issues.

The Gabon international hasn’t played for Arsenal in the last six games, and there are claims that the striker may have played his last match for the Gunners.

Interestingly, former Chelsea and West Ham striker Carlton Cole has backed Chelsea to sign up Aubameyang from Arsenal.

“If you look at it, Chelsea are in need of a striker as well,” Cole told Stadium Astro.

“Imagine that, you never know! Stranger things have happened. It’s still London, do you know what I mean?

“But I doubt that would happen as they’re [Arsenal] not going to sell or loan to their rival club.

“Look at the history… Dortmund, Tuchel and Aubameyang… they know each other and he knows what he gets out of him.

“I’m not saying that’s going to happen, I’m just saying it’s a possibility because everything’s a possibility in football.”
