Aubameyang must demand Arsenal transfer to get Barcelona move

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang must demand a transfer from Arsenal if he's to get a January move to Barcelona.

Mundo Deportivo says the Gunners striker, 30, is keen on a move to the Nou Camp.

But with Aubameyang recently installed as club captain, it may not be easy for him to walk away.

The Spanish report suggests he will need to hand in an official transfer request in order to force a move to Quique Setien's side.

The Gabon striker, who pockets a basic of around £200,000 a week plus huge bonuses at Arsenal after signing from Borussia Dortmund in 2018, is under contract at the Emirates until next summer.

Barcelona are desperate for a new striker signing - with boss Quique Setien forced into the transfer market this month due to the long-term injury suffered by Luis Suarez.
