Barca are in the lookout for a new striker.
And the Gabonese is on the shortlist.
Arsenal are facing a tough battle to keep striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang at the club. The captain has a contract running until June 2021, but he is yet to meet with the board to discuss a new deal.
The Arsenal directors also find themselves at crossroads, for they can’t make up their minds over whether to keep Aubameyang or cash in on him. Surprisingly, they might get the chance to do the latter, as according to Mundo Deportivo, Barcelona are keeping an eye on the situation and could move to sign him as early as in January.
The Blaugrana see the Arsenal striker as the perfect replacement for Luis Suarez, who will miss the remainder of the season due to a serious knee injury. They believe that Auba’s close relationship with Ousmane Dembele and Samuel Umtiti may be crucial in efforts to lure him away from the Emirates Stadium.
Antoine Griezmann is Barca’s only attacking option at the moment, and they also have few other names shortlisted apart from the Gabon international.
