Arsenal captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is open to joining Barcelona in January following his recent axe from the matchday squad.

The Gabon international was recently left out of the squad to face Southampton. Mikel Arteta revealed that he was dropped because of a disciplinary breach.

The Gunners manager refused to speak on the striker's situation following the game, but The Mirror now claims that there is uncertainty over the forward's position at the club.

Aubameyang will enter the final 18 months of his Gunners contract in January, and it is reported that he would be interested in joining Xavi Hernandez's project at Barcelona.

The Catalan giants are eyeing a new striker in January after the recent setback for Sergio Aguero due to a heart concern. There are suggestions that the Argentine could retire soon.

The Gunners face West Ham United in the Premier League on Wednesday night. Aubameyang's absence from the matchday squad may lead to serious question marks over his future.
