Arsenal confident of strong position in Aubameyang Chinese battle

Arsenal are in a strong position as they aim to hold onto Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

Le 10 Sport says two Chinese clubs - one being Guangzhou Evergrande - are in contact with Aubameyang about a move to the Far East this summer.

However, the Gunners are desperate not to lose the Gabon ace and preparing to price him out of a move away.

Arsenal rate Aubameyang at a price of at least €60m - so pricing Guangzhou Evergrande out of any deal.

New Chinese transfer laws mean the equivalent of any transfer fee paid to a foreign club must be matched in a tax payoff to the local government.
