And he would be delighted to reunite with Aubamyenag, who could leave the Gunners after being ostracised by Mikel Arteta last month.

Speaking at a press conference reported by Get French Football News, Sako said: “I am trying to attract him.

“Wouldn’t you like to see Aubameyang back at St Etienne? We all feel the same. I am very serious when I tell him to come, even if it is in a joking tone.

“I don’t know if it is possible, but I hope he will respond favourably.

“It is difficult because he has been at Arsenal for a long time, it is not easy to leave London.”

Aubameyang has not played since December 6 after a disciplinary breach led Arteta to exclude him from his squad.

The Gabon international was also stripped of the captaincy and Alexandre Lacazette has taken his place in the team.

And Aubameyang’s future at the club is uncertain amid interest from Barcelona and Newcastle.

Arsenal are also lining up moves for strikers Dusan Vlahovic and Dominic Calvert-Lewin.
