Arsenal have confirmed Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has left the club by mutual consent ahead of his move to Barcelona on a free transfer.
Aubameyang trained with his new Barcelona team-mates on Tuesday after agreeing a dramatic Deadline Day move to the Spanish giants from the Gunners.
An Arsenal statement on Tuesday night confirmed Aubameyang’s exit: “We wish Auba all the best for the next chapter in his career and thank him for his contribution to the club.”
Speaking at a press conference on Tuesday, Barcelona president Joan Laporta said the club hoped to unveil the 32-year-old this week, along with fellow new signing Adama Traore, who re-joined the club from Wolves.
Arsenal were willing to allow Aubameyang to leave after stripping him of the captaincy in December following a disciplinary issue.
Aubameyang has not played for Arsenal since December 6, and was left out of their squad for their warm-weather training camp in Dubai.
