Arsenal outcast Aubameyang is not going anywhere - at least not according to the bookies

Barcelona and Newcastle in the hunt to land Aubameyang on loan, but Gabon striker looks set to see out the January transfer window at the Emirates.

Arsenal are desperately trying to ship former captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang out of the club, but bookies believe the player will get his way and stay put past January.

Aubameyang was stripped of the captaincy by Mikel Arteta after numerous incidents which culminated in him being late for training after picking up his mother from France.

The Gabon star has put his case, but with Arsenal performing well since he was banished to the squad few fans have been calling for him to be recalled.

The 32-year-old is the club's highest paid player and has not asked to leave, but Arsenal are open to offers and numerous clubs have been linked.

Barcelona and soon-to-be big spenders Newcastle United are seen as ideal landing spots for Aubameyang, initially on loan.

But with a trip to the Africa Cup of Nations on the horizon, it remains to be seen if Aubmayeng will be moving - and the bookmakers don't think he will.

He is as short as 2/5 to still be at Arsenal when the January window closes, a probability of over 70%.

Barcelona are seen as the most likely club to land him and are priced at 7/2, with Eddie Howe's Toon Army at 13/2.

Lyon and West Ham are both at 10/1, while Juventus, who are in desperate need of striking reinforcements, are 12/1.

But despite Aubameyang looking set to stay at the Emirates, it hasn't stopped former Gunners defender Lee Dixon speculating as to his replacement.

And the player Dixon believes Arsenal should be targeting is Dominic Calvert-Lewin.

"Would I like to see Calvert-Lewin at Arsenal? I think yes. I think you'd struggle to get one of the top, top strikers like [Erling] Haaland.

"It would be a step up for Calvert-Lewin, no disrespect to Everton.

"I like him, I think he's got potential to be as good as he wants to be. He is fit and athletic, he is strong and good in the air and a good finisher. I would take him."

Calvert-Lewin is Evens to join the Gunners in the January window.
