Barcelona set to sign Arsenal playmaker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang


Spanish giant football club Barcelona are set to land the signature of Arsenal striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang .

Based on club opinion saying that the Gabon international has fallen out-of-favour with the Gunners over the past few months following a disciplinary breach which led to the management trying to sell the playmaker to any club.

The 32-year-old is keen to join the Catalan giants, and the deal is expected to materialize before the transfer deadline tomorrow.

Gathering from the Gunners angle saying that they won’t demand any loan fee from Barcelona but the Blaugrana will pay a major chunk of the player’s £350,000-a-week wages which Arsenal see as a disturbing problem.

Report also shows that aside from Aubameyang there has been speculation that Eddie Nketiah could head for the exit door on deadline day.

Nketiah is currently attracting interest from Crystal Palace and Newcastle United. The latter could be favourites to land his services.

The Magpies have already initiated talks with the Gunners, and they are likely to cash in as his contract expires in the summer.
