CONFIRMED: Arsenal £22.5m rated star won’t hesitate to join Barcelona, as he leaves the club… Arsenal has confirmed the leaves of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang who was stripped of the captaincy following his disciplinary breach before the Southampton game last weekend.
Aubameyang, who is a Gabon international player has experienced a lot of tough times with Premier League, PL campaign with the Gunners this season, after four goals in 14 appearances this season.
Meanwhile, Arsenal Coach, Mikel Arteta decided to dodge questions on Aubameyang in the post-match press conference. It is now confirmed that he will no longer be captain and might not participate in the match between West Ham United.
His statement reads;
“Following his latest disciplinary breach last week, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang will no longer be our club captain, and will not be considered for selection for Wednesday’s match against West Ham United.
“We expect all our players, particularly our captain, to work to the rules and standards we have all set and agreed. We are fully focused on tomorrow’s match.”
Although, the Aubameyang deal has expired in just over 18 months now.
According to EI Nacional,
The report shows that £22.5m-rated star would not hesitate to join Barcelona if the Catalan giants make an approach at the turn of the year.
No doubt, his exits could force the club to enter the transfer market for a new striker. Although, it does not appear in Mikel Arteta’s plans.
