Aubameyang – One club pulls out but Barcelona propose great deal for Arsenal

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has been frozen out of the Arsenal squad and has been left at home to arrange his departure while the club are away training in Dubai. We all assume that the only way Mikel Arteta will let the out-of-favour hitman leave Arsenal this week is if we manage to get a new striker arriving first, but there is promising signs on Alexander Isak being anounced shortly.

So that should be quickly followed by news on Aubameyang’s future. But it has now been confirmed by Fabrizio Romano that the Arab giants Al-Nassr have given up on tempting him to move to Saudi Arabia.

To be honest we all thought that that deal was unlikely except as a last resort and a move to Juventus or Barcelona seems like a much more appealing move for our ex-captain. There is no news on Juventus yet, but it is being reported in the UK’s Sunday People (as reported by The Boot Room), that Barcelona have sent a director to London to try and are proposing a loan deal for six months with a £30 million option to buy if all goes well in the summer.

This sounds like a great deal for both Aubameyang and Arsenal, and the fee would cover half of Isak’s transfer fee, and also free up more wages to meet the Swede’s wage demands.

Perhaps this window may not turn outso badly after all….

  1. I don’t understand oh so because the saw lsak in London then you assumed that he’s signing for arsenal? AND concerning that aubameyang saga if all you said is true then i think it is a good deal loan + 30million buy option is an excellent deal i just hope it pushes true..

    1. All this dealing with Aubameyang this loan options to buy. What’s going on with Arsenal a lot of exits but no incoming players something not right with this.

  2. I dont see it, it doesn’t make sense and is fantasy. Maybe a loan deal for Auba but thats about it, i dont see them paying 30 mil at all.

  3. Barca is totally bamkrupt. They paid 120 mill for Griezmann, 130m for Coutinho and 150m for Dembele and can’t sell any of them. Their jewel in the crown Messi they lost for free to PSG. If Auba does go to Barca one thing is for sure we will be paying 50% of his salary and the 30 million “option to buy” actually means he will be let go for free next January and relocate to Monaco or some other footballer retirement club.

  4. Cash strapped Barca to take him on loan and then pay £30m considering his age, wages and their dire finances this is absolute fantasy rubbish.

  5. Arteta and Edu have really messed this transfer window up.
    Allowing so many players to go on loan and not signing anyone we are actually in a worse position going into the season finish than in December.
    I would hope that should we finish outside the places for Europe both Arteta and Edu would leave the club – the entire point of their employment is to achieve european qualification – everything else including developing a young team, improved atmosphere around the club would all become something of a moot point if this season turned out to be wasted…

  6. Having watched an epic Ozzie tennis final it looks as though Barcelona (according to Sky Sports)are in advanced negotiations to sign Auba on loan for the remainder of the season

  7. We can loan and sell Auba because of Indiscipline, or Arteta’s tough desplinery measures but we can’t attract top strikers of his anymore, Auba will thrive wherever he goes, but we are likely to struggle much without him than with him.

    It’s a dubious business Edu and Arteta are doing
