Five clubs Aubameyang could join in January transfer after Arsenal axing including Juventus, Newcastle and Barcelona

AXED Arsenal skipper Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is facing an uncertain future at the Emirates after being stripped of his captaincy.

The Gunners made the announcement on Tuesday after the player was dropped for Saturday's 3-0 win over Southampton due to disciplinary issues.

Striker Aubameyang arrived back late from an authorised trip to France, with Arsenal giving him permission on the understanding he would be back on Wednesday.

However the 32-year-old flew back to England on Thursday morning, with Arteta left fuming as Aubameyang was unable to report to training as he had not returned a negative PCR test.

The Gabon international will also not be considered for selection in Wednesday's crucial London derby against West Ham.

Aubameyang's agent Kwaku Mensah took to social media to show his fury at the decision to axe his client as skipper by posting pictures of his achievements at the club.

The former Saint-Etienne forward is now one of seven Arsenal players that could be set to depart the club in the New Year.

Here SunSport takes a look at five clubs that could look to lure Aubameyang away from Arsenal.

Reports have suggested that Aubameyang is open to a move to Catalonia in January having approached the final 18 months of his contract.

Barca were claimed to be eyeing up a swoop for the player in the summer as they looked to bolster their attack.

And the Spanish side could revive their interest in Aubameyang with Sergio Aguero announcing his retirement at the age of 33 due to a heart condition.

Barcelona have struggled for goals this season, with Memphis Depay and Ansu Fati the only players in their squad to have scored more than twice.


The Magpies could look to bring Aubameyang to St James' Park to be their first marquee player since their £300million Saudi takeover.

It has been stated how boss Eddie Howe will be given a blank chequebook next month.

And the club could eye up six players as they aim to stay in the Premier League.

With Newcastle's record signing Joelinton scoring just once from 15 top-flight games this term, the Toon will almost certainly sign a new striker.


The Old Lady are another side set to be in the market for a striker having failed to replace Cristiano Ronaldo.

Only Paulo Dybala and Alvaro Morata have scored more than three goals for Juve this campaign.

According to Tuttomercatoweb, Massimiliano Allegri's side were targeting a move for Aubameyang in August, but failed to secure his services.

And with the Turin outfit seventh in Serie A and in danger of missing out on the Champions League, they could once again turn to Aubameyang.


Aubameyang could make a stunning return back to Signal Iduna Park, who he scored 141 goals in 213 games for between 2013-2018.

He won three trophies during his time with BVB, while he was named the club's Player of the Season in the 2014-15 campaign.

Dortmund could be in the market for a centre-forward as speculation mounts over Erling Haaland's future.

Available for £64million due to a release clause in his contract, his agent Mino Raiola has declared he could be on the move in 2022 as he named four top teams in for him.


Another Bundesliga team that could look to sign Aubameyang is Dortmund's rivals Bayern.

Like BVB, the Bavarian giants could be set to lose their star player as Robert Lewandowski flirts with a switch to Italy.

And the German league leaders are believed to have drawn up a five-man shortlist at who they can replace the Poland international with.
