Barcelona, Real Madrid eye Arsenal striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang

Both Real Madrid and Barcelona are eyeing Arsenal striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, according to separate reports.

A report in El Desmarque claims the Gunners have told the Gabonese hitman that they are willing to listen to offers for him should he want to leave, in light of his contract expiring in the summer of 2021.

That report adds that Madrid are one such club interested and would be prepared to pay in excess of €70m to land him, while El Chiringuito add that Barcelona are interested in the former Borussia Dortmund man.

The 30-year-old has been prolific for the North London club since his January 2018 switch from the Bundesliga, scoring 50 goals in 78 appearances.

That report claims that the Catalan giants view Aubameyang as a potential replacement for Luis Suarez, who celebrates his 33rd birthday in January.

Aubameyang has been announced as the new club captain at the Emirates Stadium to replace Granit Xhaka.
