Barcelona and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang have been a connection that has co-existed even beyond their short time together on the field. The Gabonese striker maintains a close relationship with the Catalan club and was even present for the El Clasico.

Supporting initially from the stands and then making his way to the dressing room as well, the current Chelsea man was seen celebrating with the other Barcelona players after their 2-1 victory over Real Madrid.

Recent reports from SPORT however suggest there is more to these connections than simply support. The Gabonese forward is highly valued by the Catalan club and they see him as a solid low-cost forward to pursue should they need to.

Moreover, the player is currently struggling at Chelsea and is unable to find his best form under current manager Graham Potter. The forward has also been excluded from their UEFA Champions League call-ups and it has only further worsened his situation.

The player is reportedly even willing to reduce his salary just as he previously did to complete his dream move to Barcelona following his fall-out with Arsenal. Similarly, with the efforts and sacrifices he is willing to make yet again, his loyalty and devotion to the Catalan side can not be mistaken.

Arrived on a free transfer in the winter transfer window last season on deadline day, the player went on to feature 24 times for FC Barcelona, during which he scored 13 times and provided 1 assist.

After his stint was over at the club, he was asked to depart to create up financial space and he obliged without hesitation, with Barcelona earning upwards of €12 million courtesy of his transfer to Chelsea.

In conclusion, it was a really sound bit of business from FC Barcelona overall and the arrival of Aubameyang yet again could maybe be a reasonable path to choose in order to reinforce the forward line further.
