A potentially massive loss for Arsenal

Rumours are rumours of course. However, Barcelona could be in the market for a January signing. They have lost Luis Suarez for pretty much the rest of the season, knocking out one leg of their power trio upfront. Actually, it has been Suarez and Lionel Messi carrying the can.

Since his move to Barcelona, former Atletico Madrid striker Antoine Griezmann really hasn’t looked the part there. But it has been the injury to Suarez which may have played a part for a flood of action late this week on Aubameyang to Barcelona. He is a proven goalscorer.

Gabon International’s record speaks for itself

Abumeyang scored 141 goals in 213 appearances for Borussia Dortmund before making the move to North London. During his Arsenal career, he has scored a total of 57 goals in 91 games. His European scoring record is pretty phenomenal as well.

The Gabon international netted 15 goals in 32 Champions League games for Dortmund as well as 8 in 10 Europa League games for them. For Arsenal, Aubameyang has 10 goals in 16 Europa League appearances.

The Gunners purchased him for €63.75m in January 2018. The current market value for the 30-year-old is assumed to currently be around €70m
