Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has reportedly given the okay for Barcelona to make a move to sign him. The Arsenal striker took some time to make his mind up, but if you believe Mundo Deportivo then he is ready for the move.

The real question is whether or not Arsenal will be willing to allow the move to happen. Their willingness to facilitate any move is questionable.

AS reported that newly-hired Barcelona boss Quique Setién and sporting director Eric Abidal discussed their striker situation after narrowly beating Granada over the weekend.

Aubameyang would be a more long-term solution for Barcelona so it would be curious what the club would decide to do with Luis Suarez once he’s healthy.
