Aubameyang gives thumbs up to Barca
The search for a present and future number 9 is underway. Several names have been linked with Barcelona, including Arsenal forward Aubameyang.
'Mundo Deportivo' assures that Barcelona have now dealt with the player and that he has given the thumbs up to start negotiations. The Gabon international is aware that it is a great opportunity.
In spite of the all-clear, Barcelona have an obstacle ahead of them. Arsenal will not let their star player leave, let alone in a complicated season where they have changed their manager.
Precisely the bad run of results, they are 34 points behind Liverpool with just under half the season left, that has made the striker contemplate his future at the Gunners.
Thus, Barcelona will have to negotiate with Arsenal. The London outfit are aware that they can't always keep their star player, but they put 2021 as the earliest date he can leave.
That is why Barcelona entrust Aubameyang to deal with his transfer. The player should make the first move so that both teams can reach an agreement.
