    Aubameyang reveals how he nearly joined Spurs before Arsenal

    Aubameyang reveals how he nearly joined Spurs before Arsenal
    Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has admitted that he was close to joining Tottenham Hotspur earlier in his career, but that he would rather retire than join Arsenal’s arch-rivals in north London.

    The 32-year-old joined Arsenal for £56 million from Borussia Dortmund in January 2018 and has since scored 92 goals in 159 appearances for the club, winning the FA Cup, winning the Premier League Golden Boot, and even earning the captain’s armband.

    During his Arsenal career, he has played in eight north London derbies, scoring four goals against Spurs to go with the four he scored against them during his successful period at Borussia Dortmund, most recently scoring as Mikel Arteta’s side won 3-1 in September.

     

    Spurs could have had a completely different scenario if they had followed through on their original interest in the Gabonese international some years back, with the club blanking Aubameyang after conducting negotiations with him.

    When asked by Sky Sports whether he would rather retire or join Spurs, Aubameyang responded: “You don’t need to ask the question, you know it [the answer] already, I would retire.

    “Even more because I don’t know if you know but a few years ago I was close to signing for Tottenham and at the end, I don’t know what they did. So, I would retire for sure.

    “I was in St-Etienne I think [at the time], I’m not sure, or at the beginning of Dortmund. I don’t remember exactly.

    “I came here, I went to the stadium as well to White Hart Lane. The day after they just never gave an answer, they never called back so I was like: ‘Ok, don’t worry, so that’s why every time I play against them, they know [why I am extra motivated]”.
