8pm Arsenal news LIVE: Aubameyang to Real Madrid transfer UPDATE, Wenger ‘worries’ about Gunners, James Rodriguez linked – The Sun

ARSENAL fans are patiently waiting for news on Project Restart as the Premier League looks to get back on its feet.

The Gunners haven't been in action since March 7, when they beat West Ham at the Emirates thanks to a goal from Alexandre Lacazette – but there's speculation that they could be about to lose Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

Follow all the very latest updates and gossip from the Emirates below…

  • HOT ROD

    Arsenal target James Rodriguez has been urged to leave Real Madrid and move to the Premier League this summer.

    Former Inter Milan star Ivan Cordoba told the Daily Mail: “James Rodriguez is the best player for us Colombians.

    “It depends on him – he has everything he needs to do well.

    “I wish James would go to England because there are so many interesting options for him.

    “James is already at one of the best teams in Real Madrid, but the Premier League would be a great destination. Those who buy him will make an excellent choice.”

  • GUNNERS ROUND-UP

    Arsenal players might be back in training, but Project Restart hasn't yet been approved by the government.

    The Gunners are hopeful that the season gets going again soon – and there's plenty of activity going on behind the scenes at the Emirates.

    It's reported that Real Madrid want a transfer for Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang sorted by June 15 or will look elsewhere for a new striker.

    The Arsenal captain, 30, is out of contract next year and is not expected to sign a new deal at the Emirates.

    It means the Gunners need to make a decision on his future in the comings months – either sell him this summer or let him leave for free in 2021.

    A £30million offer is expected to be enough to convince the North London club to let Auba go.

    While Arsene Wenger has admitted that he still worries about Arsenal – and hopes Mikel Arteta can rediscover the club’s culture.

    He told talkSPORT: “I worry about the club still a lot and I watch all of the games.

    “I believe there is a culture in the way to play football at Arsenal that I want to be respected, and I hope Mikel can get that back.

    “I’m very proud and happy to contribute a little bit to improve things.”
