Aubamenyang signed for Arsenal in January 2018 and in less than two and a half years at the Emirates Stadium, he has played 105 times scoring 64 goals, 49 of them coming in the Premier League. However, Arsenal have failed to lay their hands on any silverware since 2017 and Aubameyang might be tempted to win some trophies before he retires. A move to Barcelona would likely fulfil the 30-year-old Aubameyang's appetite for silverware, with Barcelona regularly competing for the LaLiga title as well as the Champions League.
