Barcelona might be on the verge of losing one of their best strikers in recent seasons, Luis Suarez, as the Uruguayan has been linked with a move away from Catalonia in recent days.

Rumors have increased about a potential departure for Suarez and the club has apparently started to work to find a replacement.

Reports from Spain suggest the Blaugrana have entered the race for Arsenal striker Pierre Emerick-Aubameyang, who has been linked with a move away from North London should the Gunners do not secure a return to Champions League football.

The Gabon international was appointed new Gunners captain to replace Granit Xhaka this week, and he is keeping his options open, waiting to commit his long-term future at the Emirates.

According to El Chiringuito, via the Mirror, Aubameyang is on Barcelona's radar as a potential replacement for Luis Suarez as the Uruguayan reaches the latter stages of his career and struggles for form.

They are reportedly waiting for the Gabonese to decide his future with Arsenal to make a move next summer. However, given Antoine Griezmann struggles to adapt to his new club, Barca could look for an approach in January.

Ever since he joined Arsenal from Borussia Dortmund in January 2018, the striker has scored 50 goals for the Gunners, drawing attention from some of the best clubs in Europe, including Barca and Real Madrid.

Last summer Barcelona were linked with Alexandre Lacazzete, Aubameyang’s teammate in Arsenal. Now, things look different for the La Liga champions, who could land a very good alternative to aging Luis Suarez.
