Both Barcelona and Real Madrid are tracking Arsenal captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.
The 32-year old has 18 months left on hs current deal at the Emirates but he now faces an uncertain future with reports that Arsenal may be prepared to sanction a transfer for him next summer.
The top earner at the club, there have been concerns that his powers may be on the wane, with several high profile misses in recent games leading to calls from some fans that he be dropped from the team.
The Gunners have already made recruiting a striker next summer their top priority with both Alexander Lacazette and Eddie Nketiah out of contract. But now may be tempted also to cash in on the Gabonese international whilst they can still derive some value for him.
Barcelona, given their current financial predicament, do not have a great deal of money to spare just now, which suggests Real, given the wages Aubameyang is likely to want, may be a more logical destination for him.
