‘Auba and out for Emery’ 

According to the Daily Star and Daily Express Arsenal risk losing strike duo Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette next summer if Unai Emery remains as head coach. 

The Star says it could ‘Auba and out for Emery’ with captain Aubameyang’s future in doubt, and Lacazette “may be off, too”.

It’s reported that the club have been trying to negotiate new deals with the pair but “fears are growing” they are reluctant to commit while Emery is in charge.

Emery’s future is in the balance with Arsenal eighth in the Premier League table after 13 games. They are already eight points behind fourth-placed Chelsea, who sit in the final Champions League qualification place.

Manchester City coach Mikel Arteta, a former Arsenal captain, has been linked with a return to the club as Emery’s replacement.
