Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has told La Liga giants Barcelona that he is willing to join them from Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal, according to the latest reports in Spain.
The Gunners striker is Blaugrana’s top target for the January transfer window as the club seek a replacement for Luis Suarez, who is set to be sidelined for a couple of months after undergoing knee surgery.
Aubameyang will have just one year left on his deal with Arsenal at the end of the season and the 30-year-old is yet to agree a fresh deal with the club.
Reports have claimed that Aubameyang is keen to depart the Gunners in order to boost his chances of winning a major trophy, but the Gunners are still hopeful that the striker will commit to a new contract.
According to a recent report by a Spanish newspaper Mundo Deportivo, Barcelona are fully aware of Pierre-Emerick’s demands and have been told by the forward that he would be willing to join.
