Sportsmail has revealed the frontman is free to leave the club this month, having fallen out of favour under Mikel Arteta, and there is interest from several clubs.
As a result, it appears that Aubameyang’s career at the Emirates is over – a suggestion Adebayor, a former Arsenal ace himself, has revealed he agrees with.
‘I know he’s going through a lot, because that’s Arsenal for you,’ he said.
‘They never knew how to forgive, so I know he went through a lot. He’s a fantastic player, I wish him all the best – I’ve sent him a message already.
‘We just want him to bounce back. Whether we like it or not, he’s an African brother and we want him to keep representing Africa the way he was doing before.’
"That's Arsenal for you, they never know how to forgive."

It is believed Aubameyang, who was also stripped of the captaincy, would prefer a switch to a top side in Europe this month, despite Al Hilal in Saudi Arabia being keen.
Adebayor, 37, represented Arsenal between 2006 and 2009, and brought an end to his spell at the club after memorably signing for Manchester City.
In the same interview, he claimed the way the north London outfit treated him was similar to the situation with Aubameyang, with his relations with the fanbase souring.
Pushed on the Gabon international earning a route back in from the cold, he added: ‘I don’t think so, this is what I know because it happened to me also.
‘Not in the same way but in Arsenal, a way back I would be surprised [to see]. But he’s a great player so let’s see how it ends up.’
During one clash against his old club, Adebayor ran the length of the pitch after scoring for City, and celebrated wildly in front of the Arsenal supporters.
Despite time running out in the winter transfer window, Aubameyang remains reluctant to join Al Hilal, causing a major headache for manager Mikel Arteta.

The team have proposed to take him on loan until the end of the season, and would also include an option to sign him permanently in the summer in the terms.
But while he continues to hesitate over the switch, Arsenal face paying a percentage of his hefty wage package in order to move him on in the near future.
Juventus and Paris Saint-Germain are among the clubs aware of his availability, Sportsmail also understands, with both heavyweights monitoring his situation.
