Aubameyang Stripped Off Captaincy, May Join Barcelona In Few Weeks
December 15, 2021
From the state of of things, as gathered by naijagist.com, Arsenal forward, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang could leave the club for Barcelona in January.
We learnt that the LaLiga side are eyeing a move for the 32-year-old.
This is coming hours after the club’s decision to strip Aubameyang of the captain’s armband on Tuesday. The head coach, Mikel Arteta came to the decision, after the Gabon international failed to report on time for a COVID-19 test after travelling to pick up his sick mother from France.
With tensions seemingly high between Arteta and Aubameyang, the player now looks likely to leave the Emirates when the January transfer window opens.
New Barcelona boss, Xavi Hernandez, will be in the market for a striker when the transfer window opens in a few weeks. Xavi is also keeping an eye on Manchester United’s Edinson Cavani.
