Robson admitted it’ll be an enormous loss to the Gunners should they allow Aubameyang leave however sure the switch will be an honest deal for both the forward and Barca.
“It doesn’t create any sense for Arsenal to sell him at the instant as a result of he’s their main goalscorer, he’s the sole player that has lived up to his name,” Robson told ESPN.
