Barcelona Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang

Barcelona has completed the signing of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang on a free transfer from Arsenal. They were allowed to let the Gabonese hitman leave for free after stripping him off the captaincy in December. He had not played for the club since the start of December and was left out of the squad for their training camp in Dubai. Aubameyang scored 92 goals for Arsenal in his 163 appearances.

“This is a big risk by Mikel Arteta because what happens if Aubameyang goes to Barcelona and scores a lot of goals?” Kaveh Solhekol said after Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang completed his move to Barcelona. “It just shows how much Arsenal are backing the judgment of their manager. Arteta is saying ‘I know he is our best goalscorer, he is the club captain, he is the highest earner at the club for disciplinary reasons l don’t want him at the club’. It’s a big, big call.”

“The drop in performance levels has been so great that it is probably worth reminding people that Aubameyang was a world-class striker for much of his time at Arsenal,” he added. “Indeed, from the day of his debut for the club in February 2018 until the day of his double against Everton in February 2020, no player scored more Premier League goals. He scored 49 times in that period, the same as Mohamed Salah and a dozen more than Harry Kane. There was a notable highlight after that when he scored twice in Arsenal’s FA Cup final win over Chelsea in the summer of 2020.”
