Arsenal is right now observing a swap deal where Barcelona will be given to Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang in exchange for Ousmane Dembele, and undesirable winger.
The fate of Aubameyang remains a major worry for the Arsenal hierarchy – with the Gabon international contract set to terminate the following summer with not a single renewal to be seen.
During a massive summer when Arsenal has to settle on the eventual fate of its club captain and top goalscorer, reports claim a sensational swap deal could be on the cards including Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Barcelona’s Ousmane Dembele.
Mundo Deportivo via TeamTalk reports that the injury-ravaged Dembele makes Barcelona ready to cut its misfortunes. Dembele cost £ 100 million north in 2017 yet has since failed to gain a starting job at the Nou Camp.
Mundo Deportivo says that the two sides are desperate for their players to locate a viable arrangement and a straight-swap contract is a reasonable alternative.
With the coronavirus pandemic threatening to preclude enormous cash moves throughout the summer window, swap and part-exchange deals are probably going to get commonplace as clubs are compelled to rethink their transfer strategies.
Barcelona looked for and retained a long-standing enthusiasm for Aubameyang in January during its striker emergency. Meanwhile, the Gunners have been watching Dembele for quite a while and the Catalan giants hail football head Raul Sanllehi. This sensational swap deal could be in the offing with the two clubs desperate to gain some value from troublesome situations.
By the by, in their quest for Inter Milan’s Lautaro Martinez, the Catalan giants should not surrender, and Dembele is one of several first-team players that the La Liga side would unload to raise the assets required for Arsenal’s captain.
