Arsenal ace never had any intentions of leaving the club in January

Pierre –Emerick Aubameyang never considered joining Barcelona.

Arsenal was keen to hold on to Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang in the last transfer window after it emerged that Barcelona wanted to sign him.

The Catalans wanted Aubameyang to fill in for the injured Luis Suarez and it appears that they also think the Uruguayan may not return to his best form when he is back from injury.

Barca explored the possibility of taking Auba on-loan with a possibility of making the move permanent, but they never really made their intention official.

Express Sports is claiming that the Spaniards did harbour ambitions of tempting Aubameyang away, but the attacker never considered making the switch.

In the months that the rumours became persistent, Aubameyang used the club’s program notes to assure the fans that he was committed to them and eased their minds.

The report further claims that Aubameyang was never interested in making a short term move away from Arsenal to fill a role that could be up in the summer when Suarez returns.

Auba remains Arsenal’s most consistent striker and his 14 goals in the Premier League keeps him in the hunt for another Golden Boot after he shared the gong with Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane last season.

Arsenal will return to Premier League action later in the month and Mikel Arteta will no doubt hope that Auba continues to find the back of the net on a regular basis.

      If you were a regular user you would know I have answered the question about the number of articles many many times now. Articles are increasing and will continue to do so and when the new site is rolled out it will be easier to navigate and you can then pick and choose far easier which articles you want to participate in. With regards to the email that does not come to me and I cannot answer to that, I will, however, point Pat to this thread.

    Why we just don’t listen to what a player says on the official website, programme or their own personal sites, is a mystery that happens every transfer window.

    Nothing is official, till it’s officially announced – the sacking of UE was a prime example.

      It doesn’t matter how many times a person says they will stay the media ignores it just to make a story

    Auba will be sold in the summer, there are more clubs buying and his value more likely to be met. We need the cash from sales in the summer for reinforcements. I think a big attempt to get Ozil of the books and maybe Lacca, kolasinac, Bellerin and Socrates will be made available also.

    1. SAGooner says:

      Why is Bellerin in this mix? He remains a good RB and will develop further under Arteta.

      1. Reggie says:

        Bellerin is injury prone, he isn’t a strong defender and if there is a Spanish club came in for him, i think he is very replaceable. Bellerin had one good season in 4, the rest have been poor or he has been injured, i see no point in keeping him.

        1. Palmer17 says:

          Max Aarons for one can replace him
