Barcelona want Aubameyang

Catalan Barcelona are considering an option of with a purchase of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to replace Luis Suarez.

Luis Suarez is far from being young; therefore, the Catalan club is looking for possible options with replacement of the Uruguayan, which was known back in the pre-season transfer window. The footballer himself normally excepted the fact of replacement search, understanding that not always he manages to keep up with nimble teammates.

Besides, last week Luis Suarez got injured, which can play a key part in activization of Barcelona transfer service work. The Catalans took Antoine Griezmann from Atletico Madrid in the summer, but the Frenchman is very unlike the Uruguayan by the style of play, and generally supports the attack from the deep, acting on the false nine position. There is no one to replace Suarez with on the edge. Last winter the club management went for extreme measures and invited Kevin-Prince Boateng for the position, who wasn’t remembered by anything.

Aubameyang moved to Arsenal from Borussia Dortmund in January 2018. The transfer sum was 64 million euros. Whereas throughout two years he showed a stable statistics of goals and even this season scores eight goals in 11 matches of the English Premier League.

A transfer to Camp Nou would be a step forward for Aubameyang, which the Gabonese deserved for a stable game. Besides, Ousmane Dembele plays for Barcelona for a third season, with whom Aubameyang had warm relationship since their play for Borussia Dortmund. At the same time, not so long ago, the Gabonese became the new captain of the Gunners. Unai Emery left Granit Xhaka without the armband after his antics with fans, who booed him the whole match. So we will see, how Aubameyang reacts to his new status and whether he wants a new challenge for himself.
