Earlier on Monday, Barcelona president Joan Laporta revealed the club are £1.15bn in debt.
Aubameyang, who joined Arsenal for a then club-record fee in the region of £60m in January 2018, scored 15 goals for the north London club last season as Mikel Arteta’s side missed out on European qualification for the first time in 25 years.
Barcelona tried to sign England striker Tammy Abraham from Chelsea, report Sky in Italy.
Abraham, 23, completed a medical in Rome on Sunday ahead of completing a permanent move to the Serie A club for £34m.
Kevin Campbell feels there was a lack of communication from Arsenal about Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette’s absence from their squad to face Brentford in their season opener
Speaking to Sky Sports News, former Arsenal striker Kevin Campbell said: “Something is awry. Something isn’t right.
“Right up until the [Brentford] game they [Aubameyang and Lacazette] were going to be in the starting line-up and then all of a sudden they are out. If they are ill let us know what the illness is.
“I just feel like there is some infighting going on at some stage. Arsenal don’t need this because there is some serious work to be done [in on-field performances].”
