Former Arsenal striker Pierre Aubameyang is having the best time of his Football career in Laliga’s Barcelona.
This is after he scored Thursday night, a move that has seen Barcelona secure a place at the Europa League round of 16.
Aubameyang since moving to Barca has scored four goals; a hat-trick on his Sunday game and one goal on Thursday against Napoli.
Is Aubameyang getting back his mojo?
Aubameyang fell out with Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta after a disciplinary breach in December. This involved out of pitch cases like failing to arrive on time for trainings among others. At this point, Aubameyang was club captain, scoring 92 goals in 163 games.
Aubameyang signed for Arsenal from Borussia Dortmund ahead of the 2017-18 season, for a then-club-record fee in the region of £56 million.
In January, Aubameyang was part of the Gabon squad at the Africa Cup of Nations in Cameroon but missed the first two games with coronavirus before being sent home after team medical staff said they had detected “cardiac lesions”.
At the beginning of February, Auba joined Barca as a free agent until the end of the campaign. His new form could see Barcelona get top of the Laliga table.
Could this mean that Aubameyang is poised to secure a contract at the end of the season?
