FilGoal | News | Aubameyang: I preferred Arsenal to Barcelona for two reasons … and I hope Awar will join


Arsenal captain Pierre Emerick Aubameyang said that he had received an offer from Barcelona to join him, but he preferred to continue with his team and renew his contract, in statements reported by the French “Canal +” network.

“There were several performances, including Barcelona, ​​and there were other clubs,” Aubameyang said.

“My priority was to stay with Arsenal for two reasons, the first is the coach, Mikel Arteta, because we spoke a lot during the closing period. We were at home and talking several times and he convinced me, especially for the project,” he added.

“Of course, the second reason is the great love I receive from the fans and from the club, since I was here I was treated as if I was one of them, and I will continue here, it is that simple.”

The 31-year-old had earlier renewed his contract with Arsenal for a period of 3 years this month.

Barcelona arranged to include the Gabonese international star during the last period before renewing his contract, especially since he had 12 months left.

When Aubameyang was asked about the possibility of joining Hussam Awar, he said: “He is a very good player. I hope we will be fortunate to include this kind of player in our club. I am sure that he can add a lot to us. I hope he comes to us.”

Press reports have linked Arsenal to the signing of Aouar from Lyon, and reports indicated that the French club rejected an offer of 35 million euros, and indicated that the French club estimated its price at 50-60 million euros.
