Barcelona Want To Sign Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang To Replace Luis Suarez

Arsenal face a major fight to hold onto their Gabonese striker with Barcelona monitoring the player ahead of the transfer window reopening in January as they seek a replacement for Luis Suarez.

Barcelona's board believe they can lure the 30-year-old away from North London as they can offer him Champions League football.

He has yet to commit his long-term future to Arsenal with his current deal expiring in 18-months' time, and the lack of activity has alerted Barcelona who are weighing up an ambitious offer in January per El Chiringuito.

But Barcelona could get the player on the cheap at the end of the season if Arsenal fail to secure a top four finish.

Further reports claim Aubameyang has a clause in his contract that allows him to leave Arsenal if they don't qualify for the Champions League.

Aubameyang joined Arsenal from Borussia Dortmund in January 2017 for a then-club record transfer fee of £56 million.

He has been ultra-prolific since completing his deal, scoring 10 Premier League goals in 13 appearances in his debut campaign, before winning the Golden Boot last season after netting 22 league goals. He already has eight league goals to his name this season.

Aubameyang, meanwhile, has been confirmed as the club's permanent captain after Unai Emery stripped Granit Xhaka of the role.
