After years without a proper goal-scorer, Arsenal finally have two in their ranks in Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

The pair have led the Gunners to the final of the Europa League and their performances in Baku could determine Arsenal's fate in Europe next season. 

Lacazette and Aubameyang have together directly contributed to 71 goals in all competitions so far this season and their performances have reportedly attracted interest from two of the biggest teams in world football. 

 

Reports have emerged that Alexandre Lacazette is being considered by La Liga champions Barcelona while their fierce rivals Real Madrid are said to be keen to sign Aubameyang to bolster their respective attacks. 

Not many players reject the opportunity to join either of the Spanish giants and the Gunners will be dealt a humongous blow if they lose either player in the summer.

However, Guillem Balague has spoken out about the rumours linked the two clubs to the duo and his words will fill Arsenal fans with a ton of confidence.

Speaking on his YouTube channel about the possibility of a summer transfer, Balague said: "Nope. Neither of them is seriously wanted by either club. They are both top players of course, but they aren't chasing either of them. So Arsenal will have their top strikers for another season at least."

Arsenal fans are sure to breathe a huge sigh of relief if Balague's update is true and reports have emerged that Gunners will look to tie them down to new deals which would see them earn in the region of £250,000-per-week.
