Arsenal's concerns with Aubameyang's transfer to Al-Hilal might have been resolved
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s potential transfer move to Al-Hilal may have been resolved as the Saudi club prepare to submit an offer.Aubameyang has been frozen out of Mikel Arteta’s plans at the Gunners after a succession of disciplinary-related issues, with the striker also stripped of the captaincy.That means that he is free to leave the Emirates Stadium this month after four years at the Premier League giants, either on loan or on a permanent deal.Putting an obstacle up to any potential exit is his astonishingly high wages of £350,000 a week, having been handed a major pay rise as part of a new contract signed in 2020.Arsenal’s hopes of moving the Gabon international on before the end of the window have now reportedly been handed a major boost.According to the Daily Mail, Saudi Pro League side Al Hilal are prepared to pay Aubameyang’s wages in full as part of a loan deal.Leonardo Jardim’s side are fourth in the Saudi league and are understood to have offered to take Aubameyang on loan for the rest of the season, with an option to make the move permanent in the summer.And in a move described as being ‘hugely attractive’ to Arsenal, they are prepared to take on the striker’s huge wages in full.Should Arsenal allow Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to join Arsenal? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section...It is stated that the Gunners would be inclined to accept the offer, though the decision to move to the Middle East lies with Aubameyang.Arsenal are aware of the proposal from Al Hilal, with Aubameyang and his representatives set to study it in the coming days.It is unlikely to be his only offer, with interest in Aubameyang said to be ‘growing’ as time ticks down on the transfer window.Want to be on the ball with all

It’s palpable.“Why wouldn’t they be angry?“Myself and everyone kept to the rules.“I think I’ve been naive all my life, it’s only now that I think… why do we trust them?“Of course we shouldn’t trust the people in charge, that’s how they are in charge.“They shouldn’t be trusted,” the actor concluded.Now Ricky is preparing for the launch of season 3 of After Life on Friday, but filming the last six episodes of the show has been filled with challenges.The production process was put on hold during the coronavirus pandemic and Ricky even admitted he was anxious over whether or not the new season would go ahead.The third season was initially announced in May 2020 after season two was released in April 2020.Nearly a year later, filming finally kicked off and wrapped in June 2021.Ricky himself confessed the uncertainty of the pandemic caused him “anxiety”.He told Deadline on Friday: “It was a year of anxiety, thinking whether it would it go ahead.”“But we didn’t drop a minute due to Covid,” Ricky continued.
