Arsenal may have to brace themselves for the return of Barcelona for Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.
The Gabonese attacker has been one of the most sought-after attackers in the world in the last few months.
He has attracted a lot of attention because of his goal-scoring record and the fact that his current deal with Arsenal will expire at the end of next season.
Barcelona made him a top target in the last transfer window when they lost Luis Suarez. However, they eventually turned their attention to Lautaro Martinez, who is younger and offers a more long-term solution.
The Catalans may have turned their attention away from Aubameyang towards Martinez, but they could return, according a report in Spanish media outlet AS.
The Spaniards are struggling to agree on a fee with Inter Milan for the sale of the Argentinean striker and Hernan Crespo has advised Martinez against making a move away from Inter so soon.
The former Chelsea striker reckons that it is too soon for him to leave Inter Milan.
He said as quoted in AS: “I tell him that he must stay at Inter, without a doubt. The reason is simple. He did well in Argentina with Racing Avellaneda, arrived at Inter and was a substitute for Mauro Icardi in the first season and is now a fixed starter “
“This is his first season as a fixed starter. It is little to decide to change his life and go to Barcelona. He needs at least three years to complete his growth, then he can think of a change of team,” he added.
