Arsenal coach Unai Emery has moved to clarify that they are not willing to sell Emerick Aubameyang, amid transfer links with Manchester United.
The Spaniard spoke after the club's loss to Real Madrid on Tuesday, reiterating that Aubameyang was a rich option for the club in the coming season.
This comes amid reports that the Gabon international was the subject of a £62m bid from the Gunners.
"It's not really in our mind, not really. We are very happy with Aubameyang and we don't want to sell him," Emery told the club's official website.
"Aubameyang can play like a striker alone, like a striker with two and can play as a winger on the right or the left,"
"We want to be very aggressive in the attacking third and moving forward to score with him. But above all, with Aubameyang, we can take different options with him and he is very good and very rich for us,"
The striker was on form last season for the London-based side, scoring 31 goals in total and claiming the English Premier League Golden Boot.
United are said to be in the market for a striker with Romelu Lukaku eager to make a switch to Italian giants Inter Milan.
