And Kafi Solikol, a journalist for the English branch of the network, said that Barcelona is interested in signing Arsenal’s Aubameyang.
The journalist indicated that the Catalan club will include its player Philippe Coutinho in the deal to get rid of him, especially since he is not part of the plans of Dutch coach Ronald Koeman.
“Barcelona was interested in signing Tammy Abraham from Chelsea, but the player eventually joined Jose Mourinho in Rome, Italy, in a deal amounting to 40 million euros,” Solicol said.
While the famous journalist Fabrizio Romano, a journalist in the network’s branch in Italy, denied the news, pointing out that so far there are no negotiations and the Catalan club is not interested in contracting with Aubameyang.
Romanos denial of Barcelonas interest in Aubameyang is a conflict of statements within the “Sky Sports” network.
The Gabonese striker missed Arsenal’s Premier League opener against Brentford due to illness, and the team lost two goals to nothing.
It is noteworthy that the 32-year-old Aubameyang signed a contract extension with Arsenal last year until June 2024.
The Gabonese player joined Arsenal in January 2018, worth 60 million pounds, and scored 14 goals under the leadership of Spanish coach Mikel Arteta, while the Gunners failed to qualify for any European competitions for the first time in 25 years.
