Arsenal are reportedly fuming at Barcelona for what the English Premier League club have described as attempts to unsettle star forward Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.
According to the Daily Star https://www.dailystar.co.uk/sport/football/arsenal-furious-over-barcelona-unsettling-21710140 ,Barcelona have identified the Gabon international as their top transfer target, as Luis Suarez continues to struggle with injury.
Aubameyang has reportedly already notified the Gunners that he has no intentions of signing a new deal with the club, with his current contract set to expire in June 2021.
This leaves Arsenal with the tough decision to either sell their club captain at the end of the 2019-20 season or to let him go for free next year.
Arsenal’s struggles this season has made it more difficult for them to convince their star players to remain in North London and Aubameyang was said to be close on forcing a move to Barcelona in January – this despite recent claims that he is happy at the club.
The 30-year-old has scored 61 goals in 97 games for Arsenal, with 20 of those goals coming this season.
