, has talked about

Ousmane Dembele

insisting that he asked the French forward to stay at the club as the player was on the verge of parting ways with the Catalans, but the club didn’t find a team for him, so

Xavi

decided to keep him in his squad.

Aubameyang, who had a successful spell with Dembele in Bundesliga, says that he likes to be teammates with the French forward, who hasn’t been able to prove his quality since he arrived at Camp Nou.

He said:

"To tell the truth, I am very happy that he is here and when I arrived I told him: 'You have to stay, bro!'

"It is something very special [to play with him] because we had an incredible year in Dortmund and he is an incredible player. Ousmane is one of the best on the ball and as a striker he is incredible.

"I don't know [if he'll stay], but the only thing I can say is that everything is possible in life."

Aubameyang had a similar experience with the Gunners and decided to leave the club on mutual consent, and now he is looking for a new start in the La Liga.
