Aubameyang open to Arsenal exit amidst disciplinary issues – Spanish giants reportedly interested

Arsenal striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang was left out of Mikel Arteta’s squad that beat Southampton 3-0 on Saturday and according to Arteta, the Gabonese was left out due to a “disciplinary breach”.

According to some reports, Aubameyang had flown out of England and didn’t return until a day before Arsenal’s premier league match. Hence, he couldn’t train with the rest of the squad.

This comes amidst the striker’s recent poor form as he’s struggled in Arsenal’s last few games to the extent that some fans and pundits alike have called for the Arsenal captain to be dropped from Mikel Arteta’s first xi.

Aubameyang’s recent omission from the Arsenal team have not only heightened the rumours of him eventually losing his place in the starting xi, but has also accelerated rumours of his exit from the club and Barcelona are reportedly interested in signing the Gabon international.

According to El Nacional via, Barcelona are willing to sign Aubameyang and the striker is said to be open to the move. The 32-year old’s current Arsenal contract expires at the end of next season and deducing from the current state of things, Arsenal won’t be offering a contract extension.

This is certainly one to watch in the coming weeks as Arsenal might just cash in on the former Borrusia Dortmund man in January.
