Aubameyang is widely considered to be Arsenal's most important player, with the 30-year-old having scored 17 goals and made one assist in 26 Premier League games for the Gunners so far this season.
Arsenal's Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is reportedly on the move, and according to former Gunner Lukas Podolski, the club should not force him to stay.
Barca's priority has always been to sign Lautaro Martínez and if they fail to land him, they could then turn their attention towards the Arsenal attacker. To be honest, I still can't believe we've again got a top player, our captain, going into the summer only having one year left on his contract.
Aubameyang's future at Arsenal is very uncertain as things stand, with his contract due to expire at the end of next season.
I had almost three fantastic years at Arsenal.
There are now big fears around the Emirates Stadium that they will be forced to sell their star player this summer.
"You look at Arsenal and the current plight, you have to say we're going through a transitional period, coming off of Wenger, coming off of Unai Emery and now getting the coach that I believe is going to take us to the promised land", said the former England striker.
No extension has been agreed to that deal as yet, with transfer talk now raging around a prized asset that those at Emirates Stadium can not afford to lose as a free agent.
"But if I'm gonna sit here and speak about Aubameyang at the stage of his career that he's at, maybe wanting to win things, maybe one last chance, and people are saying that Real Madrid are sniffing around him. They could have asked for £100 million ($121m)".
Arsenal are now in ninth place in the Premier League table and eight points adrift of the top four with a game in hand.
