- Kevin Volland is currently being lined up for purchase by Arsenal as Aubameyang's replacement
- Arsenal could be tempted to sell the Gabonese in January given he has just 18 months left on his current deal with the club
- Real Madrid are among top European clubs understood to be monitoring the Aubameyang's situation at the north London club
Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta is reportedly lining up Kevin Volland to replace Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang who is unsettled at the Emirates.
Aubameyang is said to be keen to leave the Gunners and is considering a move away in January.
The Borussia Dortmund forward has just 18 months left on his current deal with Arsenal, but has stalled on contract talks.
Mirror UK reports the Gabonese talisman is unhappy with the current situation at Arsenal who have endured a poor run of results in recent weeks.
Sky Sports now claims the North London club is preparing for life without Aubameyang and have already identified Volland as his possible replacement.
Volland, who turns out for Bayer Leverkusen, is understood to have impressed Arsenal scouts in recent matches.
And just like Aubameyang, the German international has 18 months left on his contract, after arriving at Leverkusen from German rivals Hoffenheim three years ago.
His Bundesliga club would therefore be tempted to sell him for cash or risk losing him for free when his deal ends.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had reported that Manchester United chief executive, Ed Woodward, has reportedly informed Nemanja Matic and Marcos Rojo they will be offloaded when the January transfer window opens.
The United duo has endured a difficult spell under club boss, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, who has limited them to just six Premier League appearances between them this season.
