Arsenal duo Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette are claimed to have been offered to Barcelona on a long list of options to join the club.
The Catalan giants are in a transitional period at present, having parted ways with Lionel Messi last summer, and have since decided to commit to a new manager in former star Xavi also.
Their attempts to make up for their loss of their superstar of the last decade has left Barca struggling this term, trailing Real Madrid at the head of the table by 17 points at present, occupying sixth in the La Liga table after 20 matches.
Mundo Deportivo claims that they have now been handed an extended list of strikers who are attainable, including both of Arsenal’s experienced forwards in Lacazette and Auba.
The DailyMail claims that it is a list of players offered by agents to the Catalan side, and you can completely understand why both of our duo would be considered as attainable, especially with the Frenchman currently out of contract this summer.
If we can manage to bring in a new attacker this month, which we are believed to be trying to do, it might not be an issue to lose both of our experienced pair, but I think it would be a huge risk to try and replace both of them in the same transfer window.
They would both likely be an upgrade on Barca’s current options regardless, and should we be able to bring in a striker this month, it may be best for us to try and get a deal done for Auba before the current window closes.
I disagree with letting Laca to leave. The new dynamic in the team is thanks to his leadership. To suddenly break it with a new addition is a big risk. Continue with what is working and introduce changes gradually and with a lot of caution.
The gods are against us!
spurs just scored 2 goals, both 5 minutes into added on time to win 3-2 at Leicester, unbloodybelievable!
Yes Declan. The third goal could have been avoided. Leicester messed up….. I was delighted at 2:1. 2:2 was still fair. But 2:3 didn’t give me any joy. Well we have to beat spurs at their turf
Tielemans set them up.
He was bloody useless for Leicester.
In all fairness Spurs should have won this game easily.
Yes, spurs deserved it and should have been at least 3 up at half time but still a sickener.
ITS COME TO SOMETHING when we offer OUR old castoffs to Barca.
I just cannot imaguine a club of BARCELONAS STANDING BEING REMOTELY INTERESTED IN OVER THE HILL PLAYBOY AUBA OR WILLING BUT LIMITED LACA.
I’m sure that Barca have noted that the club want Lacazette to sign a new contract and, of course, gave Aubemeyang a new three year contract just a few months ago… so they know how highly MA rates /rated them and, in their current financial difficulties, we’ll probably help
by loaning them out and paying their salaries till the end of the season.
Does ANYBODY really take these media stories seriously?!?!
OT Arsenal player being investigated for spot fixing after one unnamed player had a very large bet placed on the time he received a yellow card in one match this season. So who’s had yellow cards? In approximate order: the most for Xhaka, Lokonga, Gabriel, Auba, Partey, Holding, Saka, also for Kolasinac, Cedric, Ramsdale, White, GM, Tomi, Tavares, Mari, Ode.
Pick the bones out of that one.
