Aubameyang wants Barcelona switch

Arsenal forward Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is reportedly keen on making the switch to the Spanish top-flight with Barcelona this summer.

The 31-year-old's current deal with the club expires on June 2021 and he has so far declined to sign an improved contract.

Hence, he is likely to be sold at the end of the season and The Mirror claims that the Gabon international would prefer the switch to the Camp Nou.

The Blaugraaa are on the search for a new marksman to compete with Luis Suarez and they have Lautaro Martinez from Inter as the prime target.

The negotiations for Martinez have reached a standstill with Inter's £90m plus valuation and Aubameyang could emerge as an alternative.

Arsenal are said to value Aubameyang in the region of £35m. Inter and Juventus have also been linked with the former Borussia Dortmund star.

Aubameyang has netted 23 goals during the course of the current season. He has largely featured in a wide attacking role.
