According to a recent report by Mundo Deportivo, Barcelona are hoping to make a move to acquire the services of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang from Arsenal. The same source has also claimed that the Catalans have identified the Gabonese striker as an ideal replacement for Luis Suarez, who is currently out for a long time with a knee injury.
Aubameyang’s Excellent Record In The English Top-Flight
The Gunners speedster has enjoyed another productive season at the Emirates Stadium after sharing the Premier League’s golden boot award with Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane last season. He has been Arsenal’s shining light in what is turning out to be a disappointing campaign for them in the English top-flight.
Aubameyang has scored 16 times and created one assist in 26 appearances for the North London outfit this term in multiple competitions. He has averaged 2.5 shots, 0.8 key passes and 0.5 dribbles per game for Arsenal this season (stats via whoscored).
The 30-year-old also has a wealth of international experience, having represented the Gabonese national side in 59 matches while registering 20 goals for his homeland thus far.
What Are The Premier League Sensation’s Best Attributes?
Even though Aubameyang is about to turn 31 later this month, he is still one of the quickest players in England and can make some well-timed runs behind the opposition backline. He is a prolific presence in the final third due to his knack for banging in the goals even in a game with limited chances. The Gabon international only has a few years left in him to play at a high level so it won’t be a surprise if he seeks a move away from North London in the future.
Is Aubameyang The Right Option For The La Liga Champions?
Barca boss Quique Setién is in dire need of a proven goal-scorer especially with Luis Suarez currently sidelined for four months after undergoing knee surgery. Antoine Griezmann, Ousmane Dembele and Lionel Messi can all operate as a centre-forward, but they have proven themselves to be more effective out on the wide areas.
Therefore, recruiting a striker of Aubameyang’s track record will undeniably be a sensible move for the Catalan giants that could propel them back to the top of European football. All in all, he will be an excellent addition to Setien’s squad if Barca can find a way to lure him to the Nou Camp.
