Arsenal hopes of hanging on to Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang given a big boost

Barcelona is no longer interested in signing Aubamyenag claims journalist.

According to Spanish football expert Guillem Balague, Arsenal can have some peace now in the knowledge that Barcelona won’t be making a move for their star man, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

The Spanish expert claims that Barcelona has turned their attention away from the Gabonese attacker and they are now focused on signing Timo Werner from RB Leipzig.

Aubameyang has been attracting the attention of the Spaniards over the past few months after they lost Luis Suarez to a long term injury.

They also think that Suarez isn’t getting any younger and this might be the perfect time to look for a replacement for the Uruguayan.

However, Guillem has claimed that the Spaniards would most likely not pursue a move for Auba again.

“I don’t expect Aubameyang to sign for Barcelona in the summer, Barcelona don’t want him,” Balague said according to Express Sports.

“They were looking for Timo Werner, Aubameyang or Rodrigo in January but now, they need to go for a top number nine, a top midfielder, a top winger and a top centre-back and Aubameyang is not a candidate.

“Now, I think [Mikel] Arteta wants to convince him to stay on, there are going to be changes in the summer for Arsenal and he should be an important player for them.

“They cannot lose these kinds of players, so I think he’ll stay.”

Mikel Arteta has urged the Gunners to keep their captain at all cost, and the Spaniard has claimed that he will also try to convince the attacker to stay at the Emirates.

Aubameyang is said to be keen on winning more trophies and Inter Milan is another team circling him.

    Honestly, the wage structure of the club is based on the receipt of champions League revenue.

    Personally I’d rather see a restructure with funds raised through the sales of those on wages of £180k plus in order to free funds for investment across the squad. Several very bad investments in the last few years has ruined us financially. Scouts need to earn their money and get back to unearthing assets with a high future value.

    According to the Daily Mail, the Gunners are preparing for his inevitable exit. The reason for this is that the 30-year-old is allegedly making unreasonable wage demands.

    The report states that the strikers wants £300,000 per week, which translates to almost $400,000 every seven days — $391,400 to be exact

    If Ozil can get it with sub-standard display, let high perfomers get it also
