Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang eager to join Barcelona from Arsenal

According to reports in Spain, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has urged Barcelona to snap him up from Arsenal this transfer window.

Aubameyang is yet to renew his contract with Arsenal and will be left with just one year on his current deal at the end of the season.

Barcelona are currently seeking a replacement for Luis Suarez who is expected to be out for a lengthy period following a knee surgery.

Reports have claimed that Aubameyang is keen to leave the Gunners in order to boost his chances of winning a major trophy, but Arsenal are still hopeful that their skipper will commit to a new deal.

According to Mundo Deportivo, Barcelona are fully aware of Aubameyang’s demands and have been told by the striker that he would be willing to join.

The report claims that the move will now rely on whether Aubameyang, who is currently the Arsenal captain, will attempt to force a move to Camp Nou.

Arsenal will not be unwilling to let their top goal scorer leave as they continue to push for a top-four finish and secure Champions League football.
