Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is told by Gabon football president Pierre Alain Mounguengui to consider any offers from heavyweight clubs to leave Arsenal this summer.

Gabon football president Pierre Alain Mounguengui has urged Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to join "a more ambitious club" than Arsenal if he is to further his career.

The 30-year-old's future is shrouded in uncertainty ahead of the next transfer window after failing to agree fresh terms with the Gunners.

Aubameyang is set to become a free agent next year, meaning that Arsenal may be forced to cash in on a player that has scored 49 goals in 74 Premier League appearances.

Barcelona and Real Madrid are reportedly in the running to sign the Gabon international, and Mounguengui has urged his compatriot to consider any offers.

"I don't want to say that Arsenal aren't ambitious, but Arsenal don't have ambitions as high as some other clubs as far as Europe is concerned," he told ESPN.

"So if Pierre could secure a contract with a more ambitious club, he'd definitely find his place there.

"On an individual level, we all consider him to be among the best players in the world, but the advice I give to him is to continue to work and to attract the attention of the biggest clubs and the most ambitious clubs."

Meanwhile, former Arsenal defender Bacary Sagna recently warned the North London outfit that they risk going backwards if Aubameyang leaves this year.
