Inter Milan to rival Barcelona for Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang

Inter Milan are reportedly set to battle Barcelona for the signature of Arsenal forward Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang at the end of the 2019-20 campaign.
The 30-year-old will see his current deal at the Emirates Stadium expire in June 2021, and he is allegedly keen to leave the Gunners in search of Champions League football.

A recent report claimed that new Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta was losing the battle to keep hold of the Gabon international, who has scored 15 times in 24 appearances at club level this season.

According to The Mirror, the Gunners will refuse to sell their captain during the January transfer window but a departure in next summer’s transfer window is likely.

The report claims that Inter, despite signing Romelu Lukaku from Manchester United ahead of the current season, will be in the running to sign Aubameyang alongside the Spanish champions Barca.

The former Borussia Dortmund attacker has scored 56 goals in 89 appearances for his current side in all competitions, while only Leicester City’s Jamie Vardy has netted more times in the Premier League this season.
