Odsonne Edouard will only join Arsenal if Aubameyang leaves - John Barnes

Odsonne Edouard will only join Arsenal if Aubameyang leaves - John Barnes

Former Celtic boss John Barnes is confident the club's current best player Odsonne Edouard will only be joining Premier League side Arsenal if Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang decides to leave at the end of the season.

The future of Aubameyang at Arsenal is uncertain as report has it that the former Borussia Dortmund man is ready to move on. Aubameyang is also in the final 12 months of his current contract and it is also not certain if he will be signing a new one.

With Arsenal not being sure if Aubameyang will stay or leave, they have been in search of a replacement, and Celtic Striker  Odsonne Edouard is one of their main targets.

However, getting Edouard might not be easy for Arsenal as Celtic former boss John Barnes has revealed while speaking with BonusCodeBets that the highly-rated forward won't join Arsenal if Aubameyang is still at the club.

'Do Celtic fans really believe that their best player isn't available for the right price? No, they don't. This is a fact of life, and of modern football,' Barnes said

'Odsonne Edouard is the top striker in Scotland and if Aubameyang was to leave Arsenal, then they will be looking at Edouard's situation.'

'However, if Aubameyang stays, then I don't see him coming.'

'I think if you look at any of the top players in Scotland that they could come down to England and be a success. He's doing very well at the moment and could make the step up to the Premier League if he gets a move that’s right for him and works for how he plays.'

'As a club, you must be keeping tabs on other players and potential replacements because you just don’t know what is going to happen. You must always be ready for the possibility of a player leaving, so that you're not caught with your pants down.'

'Even if a player is happy and everything is going well at a club, the club has got to be ahead of the game in case the worst happens, and they’ve got to find a replacement.'

'This is the case with Aubameyang, nothing is certain in football so it's important you prepare.”
