Gabon international Pierre Emeric Aubameyang, a professional at Arsenal, has given his consent to join Barcelona during the current winter transfer window.
Aubameyang comes at the forefront of the players that the management of the Catalan team seeks to replace with Uruguayan Luis Suarez, who will be absent from the ranks of “Barca” for a long time after undergoing knee surgery.
Barcelona officials realize that their mission to conclude the contract with the Gabonese international will not be easy, given Arsenal’s adherence to its striker and his first goal.
For the 30-year-old, the option to move to Barcelona is very interesting, and he has given his approval to negotiate the deal before the end of this month, and his stance may have a major impact on Arsenal’s decision.
Aubameyang scored 16 goals in 26 games in all competitions this season, and he is currently serving a 3-match ban due to his recent dismissal from Arsenal and Crystal Palace’s confrontation in the Premier League.
It is linked to a contract with “Al Guners” that runs until 2021.
