Hatayspor striker Aaron Boupendza is being pushed for an Arsenal move by Gabon and Gunners captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

The striker is being courted by a number of clubs, having had a stunning season with Turkish side Hatayspor.

Hatayspor recently accepted a £7million bid from Krasnodar for the frontman.

But Boupendza, 24, turned down the Russian side.

His club will now demand £8.5m for the in-demand ace... unless interest comes in from league rivals Fenerbahce.

Club president Dr Luftu Savas told Radyospor: "There is no agreement between Fenerbahce and Hatayspor regarding Boupendza.

"There are wishes and ideas. If an agreement is reached that satisfies both sides, a transfer is possible. But such an agreement and the terms of a transfer have not yet been discussed in detail.

"If everyone else offers around £8.5m, we'd love Fenerbahce to give £10m. I expect support from Fenerbahce. President Ali Koc will certainly be generous."
