Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has signed for Barcelona after a four-year stint at Arsenal. According to football. London the preference is to stay in Europe, and the Gabon international has got his wish, joining the Blaugrana on Monday night.
Aubameyang hadn’t featured for Arsenal since December following a disciplinary breach, an incident that resulted in him being stripped of the Gunners’ captaincy.
The 32-year-old was then the subject of interest from a number of clubs, with two outfits in Saudi Arabia willing to cover his salary until the end of the season.
However, Aubameyang, who found the net 92 times in an Arsenal shirt in just 163 appearances, has now completed a move to the Catalan giants.
The former Arsenal captain’s departure will save the Gunners – who bought him for £56m from Borussia Dortmund in 2018 – about £15m in wages. But it leaves boss Mikel Arteta with just Alexandre Lacazette and Eddie Nketiah as his forwards for the remainder of the season.
