Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang: Arsenal striker to have Barcelona medical

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang: Arsenal striker to have Barcelona medical

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang will have a medical at Barcelona with the Spanish club hopeful a loan move from Arsenal can be completed.

Talks are ongoing, with no deal finalised for the Gabon striker, 32.

Barcelona feared the move was dead earlier on transfer deadline day even though Aubameyang had flown to Spain.

Club president Joan Laporta told El Mundo Deportivo: "He has a house in Sitges [near Barcelona] and everyone knows we would like to have him."

Aubameyang has not played for Arsenal since a disciplinary breach in December.

He had also been linked with a switch to Saudi Arabian side Al-Nassr.

But Laporta is hoping Aubameyang will join Barcelona as he added: "He is trying to sort out his situation with Arsenal. It's complicated but we will keep trying."

If he departs, it will leave Gunners boss Mikel Arteta with just Alexandre Lacazette and Eddie Nketiah as his forwards for the remainder of the season.

Aubameyang was sent home early from the Africa Cup of Nations in January because of ongoing health issues.

The striker missed Gabon's draw with Ghana after scans revealed "heart lesions" following a bout of Covid, although later scans gave him the all-clear.
