Aubameyang’s Barcelona decision
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang could snub a transfer to Barcelona in January to assess his options until the summer.
The Arsenal star has only 18 months left on his current contract and reports have linked him away from the club.
However, Le10 Sport say that Barcelona would love to snap him up and pair him alongside Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez and Antoine Griezmann in attack.
Aubameyang, though, is said to be considering staying in north London until the end of the season before reassessing his options.
Xhaka set for exit
Granit Xhaka’s agent has confirmed an agreement with Hertha Berlin which could be bad news for Mikel Arteta
Granit Xhaka’s controversial time at Arsenal looks like it will come to an end in January.
The latest reports on the former captain suggest that Xhaka has agreed terms on a loan move to Hertha Berlin, with a £25m price set to make the deal permanent.
However, the deal must be rubber-stamped by Arteta, say the Independent , in order for it to go through.
The Spaniard will be given the final call on whether to keep Xhaka or allow him to move back to Germany.
