The Gabon international is ready to quit the Gunners after a poor season that sees them languishing in 10th.
There are worries that the next manager will have to do without top scorer Aubameyang.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has pulled out of talks with Arsenal over a new contract
The 30-year-old enters the final year of his contract in the summer and is stalling on a new deal.
Sources claim Aubameyang is growing increasingly frustrated at the team’s inability to compete for top honours.
Arsenal are likely to listen to offers for Aubameyang in the summer if they cannot persuade him to sign a new deal to avoid losing him for nothing in 2021.
This comes as Freddie Ljungberg is losing his battle to convince staff he is the manager to rejuvenate Arsenal.
The Swede, 42, was installed as Gunners interim boss after Unai Emery’s sacking last week but has had a poor start, picking up just one point against Norwich and Brighton.
Thursday’s 2-1 home defeat by the Seagulls stretched the club’s winless run to nine.
