PIERRE-EMERICK AUBAMEYANG tried to force through a January move to Chelsea - but it fell through over his huge wage demands.

The Arsenal skipper, set to play against the West Londoners in the FA Cup final later today, wanted out but could not agree terms.

The Gabon striker, who has a year left of his £60,000-a-week Gunners deal, wanted out quickly, claim the Mail.

Agents for Aubameyang contacted Frank Lampard's Blues.

At the time, Lamps had frozen out Olivier Giroud and a striker was said to be a top priority.

He was linked with Timo Werner, who he eventually signed for £48million from RB Leipzig.

Aubameyang, 31, has hit 27 goals this term.


He was said to be keen on the move which would have left Gunners fans fuming.

The departure of left-back Ashley Cole to their hated London rivals in 2006 is still raw.

But Aubameyang is said to have asked for a salary which would have made him the highest paid player in the club's history, it has been claimed.

The Blues are still keen on Aubameyang but he would have to drop his incredible wage demands.

There is a strong chance now that he will sit out the final year of his Emirates contract before leaving on a free.

That would ensure he gets the wages he is demanding.

The dilemma for Gunners boss Mikel Arteta is whether to cut his transfer fee dramatically to ensure a sale - or let him go on a free.

Stanford student raises awareness for farmworker wages after getting $7 for picking 2 gallons of blueberries

PALO ALTO, Calif. -- Incoming Stanford medical student, Gianna Nino, is raising awareness for farmworkers through her own experience picking in the fields in a tweet that has gone viral.

Gianna got her masters in epidemiology and before her fall semester started, wanted to apply for a summer job doing contact tracing.

The "Comeup Collective" podcast from Stanford seniors gives a raw, uncensored take on what it's like to be a Black, first generation college student on an elite campus.

Unsuccessful in the job hunt and also unable to secure a position working in retail, she followed in her family's footsteps and started picking blueberries at farms around the Bay Area.
In the tweet, Gianna wrote "I'm about to finish up my time in the fields, and wanted everyone to know that we (farmworkers) are paid $7 for two gallons of blueberries. How much do you pay for your blueberries?"

The tweet went viral with more than a quarter-million likes.

I’m about to finish up my time in the fields, and wanted everyone to know that we (farmworkers) are paid $7 for two gallons of blueberries. How much do you pay for your blueberries?

Dion Lim, an anchor for ABC7 News in Northern California, asked Gianna what her goal was with the tweet.

She responded that it was for others to "become aware of the hands that feed you... humanizing the people behind that. It's so easy to serve your fruit not knowing where those blueberries come from. There's a workforce with people with dreams and hope behind every food you eat."

Gianna's sister graduated this past spring from Brown University, another of her brothers is an incoming junior at Bowdoin College and her youngest brother is an incoming freshman at the University of Washington.
