Arsenal rejected opportunity to sign PSG attacker in a swap deal

Arsenal reportedly rejected a chance to consider a swap deal which would have seen Mauro Icardi come to the Emirates and Pierre Emerick Aubameyang head to the Parc de Princes.

The Argentine could have filled in and solved the striking options for the Gunners and also replace Ex-skipper Pierre Emerick Aubameyang during the winter transfer but it seems both Mikel Arteta and Arteta were not entirely convinced about the move according to The Athletic.

Mauro Icardi moved to France from Inter Milan first on loan in 2019 before making the move permanent in 2020 but has failed to live up to the expectations as he was touted as one of the best strikers in Europe.

The Gunners have set a profile as to the kind of players they want to bring in as they spent the majority of the winter trying to land Dusan Vlahovic or Alexander Isak.

Arsenal will go into the summer transfer trying to land a at least one striker as one of their most important business as their striking options Alexander Lacazette and Eddie Nketiah will be out of contract at the end of the current  season.
