Should Arsenal cash in on Aubameyang if Barcelona come calling?

There are certain rumours coming out of Spain at the moment saying that Barcelona are desperately in need of a new striker in January. The Blaugranas signed Kun Aguero on a megabucks contract in the summer, but the ex-man City legend has been told that he will be out of action for at least three months, and as it is a heart problem it could perhaps be even longer.

Barca are also missing Martin Braithwaite for the season, and Ousmane Dembele is yet to make an appearance this season, but has now returned to training at least, but there is still need for one more striker.

According to the Catalan paper El Nacional, President Joan Laporta has decided that he wants one of Arsenal’s Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang or Man United’s Edison Cavani to reinforce the side in January and are reportedly willing to pay up to 20m for either of them.

I am sure that Aubameyang would probably be pleased to get one more big payday over in Spain, and it would be very interesting to see if Arteta and Edu would sanction the move.

It is a well-known fact that Arsenal currently have far too many strikers on the books, and Auba certainly doesn’t come into Arteta’s new concept of building a team for the future, although Auba’s goals are becoming crucial for the club again this season.

One other consideration is that our captain is by far our highest earner at the club, so a sale of Aubameyang would not only bring in money to the transfer kitty, it would also free up a hefty chunk of our wage bill for use on younger developing stars.

So, what would you do if Barcelona came calling for Aubameyang?

    Latest reports say Westbrom are desperate to gain promoton from the Championship and want Aubameyang on loan in January. The Baggies are prepared to pay Arsenal a 2 million quid loan fee and pay 20% of Auba’s salary as well. I think its the best offer we will get so should snap their hand off for the deal.

    1. Declan says:

      Not only is this a ridiculous idea, do you honestly believe Aubamayang would agree to it even if in some parallel universe Arsenal agreed to it?

    2. RSH says:

      you cant be serious? no part of that deal is even good…

    Fair fan.😂😂😂hilarious.now back to the serious discussion …Take the money from Barca & run.Eadily get £17/18 million for him.He’s now 32.In & out of matches & potential injuries.It’s a no brainier.Bring in a younger striker in the Xmas window.

    1. Sir Michael says:

      Uwot? Auba should never been given a new BIG contract in my eyes we should of cashed in again bad management when will they learn WHEN

  3. Harold. Gun. says:

    We one, why let the baby go now. Just coach him and give him time on the field. He is Neketiah

    1. O.T.S says:

      Nketiah?🤷 Excuse me, moaning ninnie. Nketiah isn’t good enough and Arsenal shouldn’t even bother extending his stay. Pepe,Nketiah, Nile look unserious to me and should therefore be asked to leave.

        O.T.S TOLD they are leaving you have to be cruel to be kind Matteo Guedonzi scored the winner again the weekend good enough for France National Team but not good enough for Arsenal it stinks with this management

  4. Quantic Dream says:

    It would be too risky to let go of Aubameyang midseason. Where would our goals come from? If it happened in the summer that would be a different issue. I would sell quickly.

  5. Emeka says:

    Yes let him go and cash in on jovic

  6. Pco says:

    Move him on if we can and develop the martenilli, balogun! Bring in one of Calvert lewin, Ollie Watkins, Callum Wilson, Ivan toney, Patrick Bramford.

  7. Sir Michael says:

    Pco Why we have strikers try them out before wasting more money

  8. RSH says:

    No. If Lacazette is leaving we need to keep one experienced striker in the squad. An Auba not at his peak can still score goals and hit double digits. Crazy to let him go if Laca is going to be going in the summer.

  9. gunnerforlife says:

    Auba should not be sold. We need his goals and experience and he is a real presence on the pitch for the youngsters. With Laca on the move, Auba needs to stay.
