Prince William, Duke of Cambridge, urged Arsenal captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to leave the Emirates to go to another Premier League club, Aston Villa, this summer’s transfer window.
Aubameyang’s future at Arsenal remains uncertain.
The captain of Gabon has not yet agreed on new terms with the Gunners and has been linked to an exit.
His current contract with Arsenal will expire next summer.
“I just want to say, Pierre, I hope you will be at Aston Villa next year,” Metroian Willian said in Aubameyang during a video chat.
William added: “I have to put it there, just in case.
“Mikel [Arteta] and we’ll have a few words later.”
