Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang trains with Barcelona for the first time

Arsenal agree to let Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang join Barcelona on a free transfer, 18 months from the end of his £350,000-a-week contract; Aubameyang trained with his Barcelona team-mates on Tuesday; Barcelona hope to officially unveil him on Wednesday

Aubameyang signed for Barcelona after a dramatic Transfer Deadline Day which saw his move collapse before being saved late on.

Gabon forward flew to Barcelona on Monday morning and trained with his new teammates on Tuesday.

However, neither Barcelona or Arsenal have officially confirmed the deal.

Speaking at a press conference on Tuesday, Barcelona president Joan Laporta said the club hopes to announce the 32-year-old this week along with fellow new signing Adama Traore, who rejoined the club from Wolves.

Laporta said: “We will present Adama Traore tomorrow and, if everything continues well, we will also present Aubameyang.”

Arsenal became willing to allow Aubameyang to leave after stripping him of the captaincy in December following a disciplinary issue.
