• Aubameyang's rift with Arsenal is reportedly repairable
  • Barcelona is among teams showing interest to acquire Aubameyang
  • Arsenal may agree to let go of Aubameyang if the money on the table is reasonable

The future of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang with Arsenal is up in the air--with recent developments strongly hinting at a potential parting of ways.

In an update from ESPN, the Gunners are allegedly listening offers for the Gabonese. However, this does not immediately mean that Aubameyang is headed out the door.

According to sources, the Aubameyang-Gunners situation is not beyond repair. But an underlying factor that could alter things is how much other teams are willing to shell out for the 32-year-old striker.

As mentioned in a previous post here on International Business Times, Barcelona has been linked to a potential renewed push for the Gabonese.

But a lot has changed since then. Aubameyang has struggled this season and the amount of money that Barca is willing to shell out is likely lower.

Add to the fact that Arsenal may want to move on with players who are aligned with Mikel Arteta, Barcelona is likely to tweak their offer knowing that the shoe is now on the other foot.

A plausible scenario could see the Gabonese being loaned out to play in Camp Nou.

Aubameyang has been training on his own at London Colney after being grounded for disciplinary reasons.

The 32-year-old is set to travel to the Africa Cup of Nations with Gabonese national ream in January.

The lull could help ease the tension between Aubameyang and the Gunners before a final verdict is delivered.

If all else fails, Aubameyang could be headed to another team by the January transfer window. The only question now is if that will be on loan or a permanent basis.
