Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is prepared to wait to seal a move to Barcelona despite Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta remaining keen on keeping the Gabon striker at the Emirates.
Aubameyang is out of contract next year and is hoping that he can run down his deal to move to Camp Nou on a free if Barça fail to land Lautaro Martínez from Inter.
