Barcelona and Real Madrid are reportedly ready to start a transfer tug-of-war for the wantaway Arsenal striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang
Although he is an indispensable first-team player at the Emirates, the 30-year-old will be out of contract in 18 months and has yet to start negotiating an extension.
With the Gunners struggling to keep pace with the Premier League top-four sides, the Gabon international seems to have no interest in penning a new deal in north London.
As reported by the Daily Star, Real Madrid and Barcelona are both looking to take advantage of his contract situation to take him away from England.
Since moving to Arsenal, the former Borussia Dortmund man has become a key figure, netting 50 goals for the Gunners during a two-and-a-half-year spell at the club.
But, a lack of the Champions League football could prove fatal to his career at Arsenal, and that’s where Barca and Real come in.
The Catalans are looking to add fresh blood to their attacking department, with the 32-year-old Luis Suarez well past his prime.
Los Blancos are, in the meantime, always attentive when it comes to superstar forwards, especially considering Karim Benzema is already 31.
