Arsenal have pinpointed Raul Jimenez as a potential replacement for Gabon international Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, with the Gunners board fearing that their captain could seal a move to La Liga giants Barcelona.
That’s what is being reported in the Spanish press, as the Mexican continues to alert top sides with his form for Wolves.
He now has 10 league goals to his name this season and is the club’s all-time top scorer in the PL with 23 goals.
Now according to AS, the Gunners might make an offer for the forward if Pierre-Emerick departs the club.
The former Borussia Dortmund forward is out of contract in 18 months and is in no hurry to renew a contract.
It’s thought that Aubameyang is interested in leaving the club and holds all the power over a possible move.
The report claims Barcelona are targeting the forward, mindful that injured Luis Suarez might now be passed his best.
