Premier League title winner Chris Sutton is convinced Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang wants to leave Arsenal.
With a year to run on his contract, Aubameyang is weighing up his future.
Sutton told BBC Radio 5 Live: “He [Aubameyang] is clearly unhappy, isn’t he?
“Because he did not have to say what he said. And if he wanted to win things, with the greatest respect, he wouldn’t want to sign for Arsenal again, would he?
“There will be other suitors who are after him. He’s 31… you can’t afford to hang around at Arsenal with their position at the moment.
“There’s always turmoil at Arsenal. This whole situation has come out of nowhere – for Aubameyang to come out and speak like that.
“He could have said nothing, the fact he was strong and talks about a turning point.
“It’s not about the money for him is it now? At his age, nearly 31, it’s about winning things. There’s gonna be some big-hitters in for him.
“He doesn’t want to finish eighth in the table for the next couple of seasons and be part of a progressive Arsenal team and then his career finishes.”
