Pierre Emerick Aubameyang: Barcelona and Juventus – Barcelona and Juventus are the two European giants who have made offers to sign Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang from Arsenal which is expected to loan a deal until the end of the season. The former Arsenal captain who has stripped of the captaincy by the club for disciplinary issues later on had to return from his AFCON trip due to having heart problems after contracting Covid-19 in the Gabon camp.

The striker hasn’t featured for the Gunners since he was stripped of the captaincy in December. According to David Ornstein of the Athletic, Arsenal have received offers from Barcelona and Juventus to take the Gabonese on loan. Arsenal were dealt with a major blow as their target Dušan Vlahović was swooped by Juventus.

Pierre Emerick Aubameyang: Barcelona and Juventus make loan offers

Barcelona are currently on the verge of signing Adama Traore from Wolves for a loan deal after signing Ferran Torres and Dani Alves since club legend Xavi took over the managerial position. Barcelona were looking to to bring in Alvaro Morata and with the arrival of Dušan Vlahović, Barcelona could choose from Aubameyang and Morata looking at the financial aspects as well as player qualities.

If Morata moves to FC Barcelona then Juventus could go for Aubameyang with the future of Paulo Dybala unclear at the moment. Barça were heavily linked with Morata, who is on loan at Juventus from Atletico Madrid, earlier in the window but negotiations appeared to have broken down.

Having already paid €20m in loan fees, Juventus are not expected to trigger their €45m option for a permanent transfer, which could pave the way for an early exit from Turin this month if Atletico are open to dealing with another club.

Juventus have signed a €75m deal for Serie A hotshot Dusan Vlahovic, which is likely to limit the playing time Morata gets in the second half of the season. Sergio Aguero’s unfortunate premature retirement over health conditions last month has pushed Barça to consider a new striker in the transfer market.

However, any further activity will depend on whether the club finds a buyer for Ousmane Dembele who has had a fallout with the club. In an earlier statement from the club, Dembele was expected to leave by the end of January but the situation has been unclear if Dembele is willing to comply to the terms according to Barcelona’s demands.

Barça would hope to initially loan the 32-year-old, whom coach Xavi is said to admire. Despite a reputation for sometimes being difficult to handle, his goal record speaks for itself – 233 in his last 376 club games since joining Borussia Dortmund in 2013.
