Aubameyang, 32, is set to miss his fifth straight game when Arsenal travel to Norwich City on Boxing Day.

Et selon ESPN, the North Londoners are willing to ‘listen to offers’ le mois prochain.

Barcelone are long-term admirers of Aubameyang and are in the market for a striker to replace Sergio Aguero.

But the Gabonese star’s £250,000-a-week wages are said to put off the cash-strapped Catalan giants.

Juventus are interested in taking Aubameyang on loan for the rest of the season, if an agreement can be reached regarding his salary.

While fellow Serie A sides Inter Milan and AC Milan are also thought to be keen.

Aubameyang was contracted to the latter between 2007 et 2011 but never made a first-team appearance.

Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel is a fan of the forward, having worked with him at Borussia Dortmund.

But Arsenal would find it ‘difficultto negotiate with a London rival.

Aubameyang’s situation in North London is not unsalvageable.

He is set to jet out to the Africa Cup of Nations next month.

Arsenal want to use that period to reset relations with their former skipper.

But they are keeping their options open.

While Aubameyang’s future is uncertain, fellow strikers Alexandre Lacazette and Eddie Nketiah are set to be out of contract at the end of the season.
