WITH Arsenal having been reportedly offered Mauro Icardi in return for skipper Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang in a shock swap deal, SunSport examine how the two strikers compare.
Reports in Italy suggest the two forwards could be set to trade places but how do their 2019/20 season stats hold up against one another.
Gunners leader Aubameyang has played 32 matches in all competitions so far this campaign – appearing just once more than 27-year-old Argentina striker Icardi.
Incredibly, Icardi – who is on loan at Paris Saint-Germain from Inter Milan – and Gabon international Aubameyang have both bagged exactly 20 goals.
However, while on average it takes over three halves of football for Aubameyang to find the net, his potential replacement Icardi needs just over a full game at 98 minutes per goal this season.
Although the two are fairly evenly matched, Icardi comes out on top for assists, shot conversion rate and passing accuracy.
