Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang ‘open to Barcelona move’

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is reportedly open to a move to Barcelona, with Quique Setien’s side identifying the Gabonese striker as the ideal replacement for Luis Suarez.
The former Borussia Dortmund striker has scored 57 goals in 91 appearances for Arsenal since he arrived from Germany in January 2018.

According to The Mirror, Aubameyang’s potential move to Barcelona depends on whether he agrees to sign a new contract with the Gunners, with his current deal set to run out in the summer of 2021.

The report adds that the 30-year-old has told Barcelona he is keen on a move to the Camp Nou, although Arsenal are said to be hopeful he will sign a new contract.

The Blaugrana are in need of striking reinforcements after Suarez was ruled out for most of the rest of the season with a knee injury.

New boss Setien has since admitted that the club may need to sign a new forward in order to cope with the Uruguayan’s absence.
