Unai Emery has brushed off suggestions that Arsenal could be set to sell Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang in the summer transfer window.

The north London side have been relatively quiet in the summer transfer window so far, only bringing in Brazilian teenager Gabriel Martinelli ahead of Emery’s second campaign in charge.

Reports earlier this summer suggested that Manchester United could be interested in signing the Gabon international, with Arsenal apparently ready to sell to raise transfer funds.

However, there is nothing to suggest that talk of an Arsenal exit for Aubameyang is anything more than media speculation at this stage, and now Emery has appeared to pour cold water on reports suggesting that the 30-year-old could be sold.

Speaking at a news conference this week, Emery said when asked about the prospect of selling Aubameyang: “It’s not really in our mind. Not really.

“We are very happy with Aubameyang and we don’t want to sell him.”

Aubameyang scored 22 goals and made five assists in 36 Premier League games for the Gunners last season under Emery.

He will be hoping to help the Gunners to bounce back and secure qualification for the Champions League this season after they ended up fifth and without a trophy last term in Emery’s first season in charge of the north London club.
