Aubameyang fluffed a last-gasp winner for Arsenal during the short trip to Wembley. Arsenal could have wheeled home with all three points on Saturday, but Hugo Lloris’s palmed away the Gabon international’s tame shot away from goal, as both sides share the spoil.
While that bumper will stick tightly to the minds of Arsenal fans, Unai Emery will immediately put thoughts of how his side could have stolen all three points to sleep and chase another pressing matter instead.
The Spaniard may have enough ammunition up front at his disposal, but he has struggled to gloss over the aching thought of adding an extra depth to his side.
Yannick Carrasco appears to have re-emerged on the Gunners’ radar according to the Daily Express, and this time Emery is willing to deep his toe into the market.
But there’s just one problem. The club’s is unwilling to funnel enough cash into the summer transfer, leaving Emery cash-strapped in the coming transfer window.
The underlying problem has the Gunners manager completely handicapped. However, Emery is only hopeful that Carrasco can take a big cut in his salary. The Belgian who plays for Chinese outfit Dalian Yifang is being murmured to be unhappy in China despite his good season tally of seven goals and nine assists in 26 games.
Carrasco’s wage is around 8.8 million pounds and Arsenal cannot afford it. They face stiff competition from Serie A football powerhouses AC Milan and Inter Milan.
