Spanish giants, Real Madrid are reportedly gearing up to offer striker Luka Jovic in order to sign Arsenal’s Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang during the January transfer window.

Jovic moved to Madrid in a big-money move from Eintracht Frankfurt in the summer but has failed to live up to expectations in the club under Zidane having only played nine times in La Liga and twice in the Champions League.

According to journalist Duncan Castles’ Transfer Window Podcast, via Teamtalk, Real is prepared to let Jovic go in the winter after President Florentino Perez noticed his struggles in the club.

The La Liga giants want Aubameyang in return. The Arsenal captain is reportedly frustrated at the Gunners worst run in 42 years with defeat to Brighton last Thursday.

Real wants Aubameyang as a replacement since Karim Benzema is set for a move to Lyon in a player-manager role and Gareth Bale wants to return to English Premier League.

According to the podcast, Perez will have to convince Zidane of his plan since the manager is already eyeing Kylian Mbappé and Paul Pogba.

Meanwhile, Arsenal currently sit at 10th in Premier League and their hope of securing a place in the Champions League is slim.

Freddie Ljungberg who was assistant to Unai Emery was appointed as interim boss after Emery was sacked but reports have indicated that Arsenal is beginning to lose hope in the Swede following his team’s woeful 3-1 defeat to Brighton on Thursday.
