With his shares trading very low at Chelsea, Aubameyang could be a short-term alternative for a Barca that has stayed with Lewandowski as its only natural '9'.
With the exit of Memphis Depay of the FC Barcelona in the past market of winter the club needs to fill this role in the staff. Afterwards that the Dutch of left to the Athletic of Madrid, the Barça remained without another centrodelantero natural like alternative of Lewandowski and when the Pole was sanctioned had to resort to Ansu in this zone of the attack, something that did not give resulted.
The Spanish still seems near of his best version regarding speed and goal, by what the market of summer will mean the ideal option to find to this player. With the irruption of Vitor Roque in the Sudamericano Sub-20, the Brazilian is right now the maximum priority of the Barça for half of year, although his price and the strong competition that there is does that in the Camp Nou consider other options.
One, known and of low price, is Aubameyang. The gabonés lost almost all the chevrons in Chelsea and even called to the team culé in winter to return, but the rules did not allow it. Now, with his exit to the MLS practically descartada, the Barça has annotated the name of the African forward like this option of confidence in the case that need it.
From London the technical Graham Potter confirmed that the attacker will be still in the team until finals of season and a rescission of his agreement in summer seems the most likely option. However, with agreement until 2024 the English could want to some compensation by his signing, something that the Barça surely will avoid at all costs.
There are possibilities
'Sport' Has signalled that the option of Auba for the summer right now is not priority by the others options that exist and because they understand that it is a player for a season more, or a maximum of two. In spite of this, the club blaugrana knows that like culé left 13 goals in 24 parties and even splits of his family remained living in the City Condal, something more than could serve of incentive for the operation.
