According to reports from the Daily Star, Arsenal have reportedly made Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang their top January transfer target should Alexis Sanchez leave.
Sanchez, who is out of contract at the end of the season, is widely expected to head out of the Emirates door.
The Chilean has often cut a frustrated figure at times, something which Sky Sports pundit Thierry Henry alluded to when the forward scored in the 3-2 win over Crystal Palace during the festive period.
Manchester City have been heavily linked with a move for Sanchez, with Pep Guardiola keen to reunite with the player, who he previously worked with at Barcelona.
And now according to Italian journalist Gianluca Di Marzio, the Gunners have a contingency plan in place in the event Sanchez should leave.
The report suggests the north London outfit are considering a move, as they seek to add more dynamism to their attack.
At the end of last year, Aubameyang admitted he is more interested in a move to Atletico Madrid as opposed to Real Madrid.
He said: “The market is open, also for me. Real Madrid? That’s no longer my wish, I don’t think about it much anymore.
“Atleti? Everyone knows that they’re looking for players around the world.
“I think [Antoine] Griezmann could leave and a lot can happen. Anything can happen.”
Arsenal, meanwhile, drew 2-2 at home to Chelsea last night, with Hector Bellerin grabbing a late equaliser for the hosts.
