4 key stats show why Aubameyang sale may be a costly mistake for Barca

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is strongly linked with an early exit from Barcelona after just seven months at Camp Nou. Chelsea are the club that just can’t stop sniffing around the striker.

Xavi considers the Gabonese a backup for Robert Lewandowski, but that does not mean he should be discarded with a wave of the hand – as the following stats from Opta have shown.

1. Auba averages 2.25 shots per game.

2. He scores at least one of his 4.15 shots.

3. His conversion rate stands at an impressive 24.07%.

4. The 33-year-old has a goal per minute ratio of 117′ – one of the best in Europe.

Aubameyang scored 20 goals in all competitions last season (13 for Barca).
