Two big reasons Barcelona believe that they can sign Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang

Barcelona has two huge reasons that work in their favour as they pursue Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

Barcelona believes that they can take advantage of two situations Arsenal are in and sign Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang next summer.

The Catalans have been linked with the former Borussia Dortmund man since the last transfer window and the rumours just won’t go away.

Barcelona has lost Luis Suarez until next season and the Uruguayan is also not getting younger, so they are already planning for a new attacker to take his place.

Aubameyang is also not getting any younger, but the Gabonese attacker has shown that age is nothing but a number by continuously scoring goals for Arsenal.

He has been Arsenal’s best striker since he joined the team and he remains Mikel Arteta’s most important player as he continues his Arsenal revival.

Star Sports claims that Barcelona believes that they can sign him because he wants Champions League football and Arsenal cannot provide that.

The report also claims that Arsenal would be willing to sell him if he doesn’t sign a new deal because they would need some money after posting losses on their books recently.

Arteta has claimed that the club is working hard to do whatever it takes to keep the striker, however, the player will have to decide if he wants to stay or not by the summer at the latest.

    Yes , it seems to be the fact. The problem is down to the management again. We should sell players when they enter the final 2 years, not in the final year so coup up more money. Yes if Auba does not sign then we should sell him if we get more than 4 Million. If lesser that I would say lets keep him for another year..If Auba leaves then next year also we can not compete for top 4. Alongside laca also need to sign contract extension or should be sold in the same summer

      £4million???
      We got 10 times that for Iwobi

    The clubs clearly stated policy is/was that players going into their last two year of contract if not signing a new deal would be sold. Also, in light of the financial position of the club and the urgent need to reduce the wage bill there is no way that the club will give in to Auba’s wage demands (if true). He will, in my opinion be on his way. We should get £50m but I think wherever he goes he could end up regretting it. That is unless money is the only objective.

    If it is £4 million extra from what Arsenal paid to get him from Dortmund it’s OK, I know that Man Utd., Liverpool, Leicester and Tottenham can squeeze out that much if not more from Barcelona. Except for Iwobi Arsenal have been giving out their players for peanuts. The club can also recoup money spent on acquiring Alex Laca. should he be sold but my candid opinion is that Arsenal mismanaged Laca as Wenger did with Serge Gnabry.
