Barcelona allegedly have no interest in signing Arsenal forward Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, instead preferring to reach a deal for RB Leipzig's Timo Werner.

Barcelona would allegedly prefer to sign RB Leipzig's Timo Werner over Arsenal's Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang during the summer transfer window.

With Aubameyang having less than 18 months left on his contract, it has been suggested that the Catalan giants may jump at the chance to try to secure a cut-price deal.

However, Spanish journalist Guillem Balague has claimed that the Gabon international is no longer on Barca's radar.

Speaking to GentingBet, Balague said: "I don't expect Aubameyang to sign for Barcelona in the summer, Barcelona don't want him.

"They were looking for Timo Werner, Aubameyang or Rodrigo in January but now, they need to go for a top number nine, a top midfielder, a top winger and a top centre-back and Aubameyang is not a candidate.

"Now, I think [Mikel] Arteta wants to convince him to stay on, there are going to be changes in the summer for Arsenal and he should be an important player for them. They cannot lose these kinds of players, so I think he'll stay."

Werner is said to have a release clause in his contract, leading to strong interest from the likes of Liverpool and Real Madrid.
