Arsenal outcast Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang wanted in Juventus transfer after being stripped of captaincy by Mikel Arteta

JUVENTUS are interested in signing Arsenal outcast Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, according to reports.

The striker is currently in Gunners exile after being stripped of the captaincy by boss Mikel Arteta.

Aubameyang is not training with the first team, and wasn't considered for selection against West Ham or Leeds.

According to Tuttosport, Juventus are keen to offer Aubameyang an Arsenal escape route.

The Old Lady have had an underwhelming start to the season, currently sitting sixth in Serie A.

Winning the league already seems beyond them, as they trail leaders Inter by 12 points.

But they are focused on bridging the five-point gap to Napoli in fourth.

Club chiefs believe that securing the signature of a top striker could help transform their fortunes – with Aubameyang having entered their radar.

Juve don't have a huge amount of money to spend, so a short-term loan deal is their ideal option.

Massimiliano Allegri's side have been relying on Alvaro Morata up top.

But they want to recruit another option in order to help replace Cristiano Ronaldo's goals, after the Portuguese veteran moved to Manchester United.

Aubameyang also has interest from the likes of Barcelona.

Should Juve fail to seal a deal for the Gabonese star, they have other veteran options in mind.

Mauro Icardi is on their radar, with the Argentine not a key man at Paris Saint-Germain.

While they also like Man United striker Edinson Cavani, with the Uruguayan having starred in Serie A for Napoli between 2010 and 2013.
