Here is your Arsenal morning digest on Friday, May 28

Aubameyang Kane’s equal

On paper Arsenal’s captain, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has had nowhere near the success of north London rival Harry Kane this season. But dig a little deeper and some statistics suggest the Gunners captain has been the equal of the Spurs man.

Kane picked up his third Premier League Golden Boot and added the Playmaker of the Season award to his own personal collection whilst the Arsenal skipper managed just ten Premier League goals.

However, the pairs xG were very similar throughout the entire season, suggesting the only difference has been the quality of chances created for each striker.

Arsenal sales key to recruitment

Arsenal technical director Edu and manager Mikel Arteta are expected to be busy men in the transfer market this summer as the Gunners aim for a major squad overhaul.

Key to the much needed team rejuvenation will be outgoings, raising funds to splash the cash on a number of high-profile incomings.

With a host of fringe players available for transfer, Arsenal could generate almost £200 million in income if they are able to move on all their unwanted players.

Stars such as Hector Bellerin, Eddie Nketiah, Ainsley Maitland-Niles, amongst a host of others are likely to depart The Emirates and could generate significant income for Arteta to reinvest in the squad, read more here.

The former Liverpool man has suffered a torrid time in Barcelona with both form and injury affecting his playing time.

The 28 has, however, been told by his club that he is free to leave this summer as the Spanish giants look to slash their wage bill and would be happy to see a high earner depart from their books.

The only downside for the Gunners is that Barcelona have stipulated any club wishing to make a move for the attacking-midfielder must wait until July to get a deal over the line due to Coutinho’s injury issues.

Arsenal have been linked with a move for the Brazilian a number of times with interest in January and last summer’s transfer window.

Coutinho has two years left on his current deal and the Gunners must again show patience if they wish to get their man.
