Pierre Emerick-Aubamenyang: Arsenal striker becomes January target for Barcelona

- Pierre Emerick-Aubamenyang has become a January target for Spanish champions Barcelona

- Luis Suarez will be out for up to four months due to a knee injury he suffered at the Spanish Super Cup

- Arsenal fans have not reacted well to Barca's bid for their starman and have suggested a deal that would involve Lionel Messi

- Aubameyang was not available for the Gunners in their 2-2 draw against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge

Barcelona have made a request for Arsenal star Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang on loan as replacement for injured Luis Suarez, reports claim.

According to Spanish news media outlet Per Goal, Suarez will not be available for the club until the tail end of the season and the Camp Nou outfit have chosen the Gabonese striker as a worthy replacement.

It is understood that La Blaugrana's new manager Quique Setien and the club's hierarchy met and agreement was made to sign Aubameyang on loan and concentrate on bringing in Inter Milan's Lautaro Martinez in the summer.

But Arsenal fans have not reacted well to reports regarding the claims about Barcelona's bid for their priceless possession.

One fan said: "Heard you want to sign Aubameyang. How about you throw in £150M and Lionel Messi and Maybe we might consider."

Another added: "If Aubameyang leave arsenal to Barcelona on loan this winter then arsenal is a joke."

A third added: "If Aubameyang leaves to Barcelona, the only preferable option is to LIQUIDATE THE CLUB."

Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta recently disclosed that he does not want Aubameyang who has 18 months left on his contract with the club to leave the Emirates.

The former Borussia Dortmund star is currently serving his three-match ban after receiving a straight red card in the London derby against Crystal Palace.

He has scored 14 Premier League goals this season and he is looking strong to finish the 2019-20 campaign on a high.

Meanwhile, YEN.com.gh had earlier reported that Chelsea on Tuesday, January 21, were forced to a 2-2 draw by visiting Arsenal in a tough Premier League encounter which was played at Stamford Bridge.

The Blues would however have themselves to blame for allowing 10-man Arsenal to come back into this game after David Luiz was red carded in the first half.
