FC Barcelona has finally reveal Aubameyang has their player on their website, it was said that  details of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s presentation as a first team player will be Provided.

According sources it was known that Aubameyang had signed the contract on Monday, but were waiting for Arsenal to announce that Aubameyang contract with Arsenal has been terminated.

According to talkSPORT, it understands it is a free transfer, with Aubameyang no longer committed to the remaining 18 months of his contract – saving Arsenal close to £25million in wages.

A departure from north London was always a case of when and not if, after he was stripped of the captaincy and frozen out by Mikel Arteta.

The Gabon international returned home early from the Africa Cup of Nations due to health reasons but had not played for Arsenal since being disciplined by the club in December.

It’s a remarkable ending for both parties, especially given the impact Aubameyang had at the club since signing from Borussia Dortmund in January 2018.

22 Premier League goals in back-to-back seasons saw the Gabon captain secure the golden boot and the FA Cup in the 2019/20 season.

He was then given a new three-year contract in September 2020, reported to be worth £350,000-a-week.

However, his form since then has not reflected his wages and alongside the ‘disciplinary breach’, Arsenal felt no choice but to end ties with their captain.

Aubameyang’s last appearance for Arsenal came on December 6 against Everton

Other clubs had also been interested in Aubameyang such as Saudi Pro League side Al-Nassr, but the Gunners striker was not keen on the move.

With the 32-year-old now gone, and no new strikers arriving on deadline day, Arteta will have to rely on Alexandre Lacazette and Eddie Nketiah for the rest of the season.

If the club are to finish in the Champions League this season, they will desperately need both forwards firing soon, having scored just three league goals between them in 20 games.

He has 72 full international caps for Gabon, scoring 30 goals.
