Éric Abidal confirmed recently that the FC Barcelona already had communicated him to Luis Suárez that are looking for a forward to give him competition in the position of nine. The Uruguayan also affirmed publicly that understands the posture of the club and admitted that for him would not be any problem the arrival of a footballer in his position, since it would give a plus to the staff.

Lautaro Martínez, of a young profile but consecrated, is one of the big favourites of the sportive direction. However, in the last days has appeared also the name of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, forward of the Arsenal, that finishes agreement in a year and half and that it could suppose a big opportunity of market. To continuation, analyse the advantages and the disadvantages of the arrival of the gabonés.

Advantages

It treats of a forward contrasted and of a goleador of world-wide class. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has showed in the Saint-Etienne, in the Borussia Dortmund and in the Arsenal that has a murderous instinct for the goal that turn him into an ariete of first level. Besides, it is high, but has a big stride that turns him into one of the fastest forwards.

In the Arsenal, remains him a year and half of agreement, reason by which if the club 'gunner' does not achieve to convince him so that it renew, will have to sell him in 2020 to a reasonable price not to run the risk to lose him without earning at all in 2021. Few forwards of first level suppose an opportunity of market of these characteristics.

Disadvantages

The main problem of the hypothetical arrival of Aubameyang is his age: 30 years. The aim of the FC Barcelona is to bring to a footballer that convert no only in competition for Luis Suárez​, but also in his relief generacional. In this tessitura, the gabonés would arrive like a player of immediate performance, but in no case would be a player of projection on a long-term basis.

In spite of that the FC Barcelona would save some cost with his signing by the time of agreement that subtracts him in the Arsenal, his wage would be a problem, since his annual wage situates above the 10 million euros. Some costs that would force amover too many pieces for a player that, in addition to arriving with some age, would come to be acting of Suárez.
