Barcelona, Feb 2 (EFE).- FC Barcelona announced on Wednesday it had reached an agreement with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang on a free transfer from Arsenal FC.

Born in France, Aubameyang has triple nationality: French, Spanish and Gabonese but plays internationally for Gabon.
Before joining Arsenal he played for Borussia Dortmund for four and a half years where he scored 141 goals and earned his reputation as one of the best finishers on the continent. EFE
