Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang Exit Arsenal And Sign For Barcelona on Free Transfer
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has joined Barcelona on a free transfer after his departure from Arsenal, the club said on Tuesday.
The 32-year-old Gabonese striker agreed to the terms of the contract late Monday evening.
Aubameyang has not played for Arsenal since December due to a disciplinary infraction, although he scored 92 goals in 163 appearances before that.
Barcelona first believed the deal was dead on transfer deadline day, despite the fact that Aubameyang had travelled to Spain.

The former Arsenal captain’s exit will save the Gunners about £15 million in salary after they acquired him for £56 million from Borussia Dortmund in 2018. However, Mikel Arteta is left with just Alexandre Lacazette and Eddie Nketiah as attackers for the rest of the season.
He has also been linked with a move to Al-Nassr of Saudi Arabia.
