Alexis Sanchez

PAAlexis Sanchez's move to Man Utd has been held

Aubameyang himself is keen for the move to happen, as Sunsport revealed that the Gabon worldwide grew up idolising Gunners legends Thierry Henry, Dennis Bergkamp, Patrick Vieira & Co.

Arsenal's chief executive Ivan Gazidis has arrived in Germany to continue negotiations with Borussia Dortmund over a deal for Pierre Emerick-Aubameyang. In the last campaign, the African striker scored 31 goals in 32 league appearances for Dortmund.

Asked whether a character like Aubameyang would fit in at Arsenal, Wenger responded: 'Yes, because character can be very positive and very negative.

Borussia Dortmund want to take out-of-favour Arsenal frontman Olivier Giroud on loan until the end of the campaign, claims RMC.

Will Aubameyang be a good signing for Arsenal?

With Alexis Sanchez nearing a move to Manchester United and Theo Walcott already joining Everton, the Gunners have targeted the Gabon global to boost their attack.

Photos from Germany also showed Aubameyang's sports vehicle parked at the same Dortmund Airport terminal.


Aubameyang has been left out of Dortmund's last two match-day squads after having his head turned by interest from Arsenal and the striker is reportedly desperate to seal a move to north London.

"We regard it as disrespectful that Arsene Wenger expresses himself about players of other clubs", said the club.

Aubameyang's behaviour and poor discipline has worsened things this month, and Schurrle said that the squad had tried to talk to him about the situation, but have struggled to get through to him.

German daily Bild report that he wore a Dortmund shirt bearing the name of Ousmane Dembele, who transferred to Barcelona in August after going on strike to force the German club to sell him for 105 million euros.

The Gabon worldwide was spotted wearing a Dortmund shirt as he played indoor football with friends during Dortmund's 1-1 draw against Hertha on Friday.

Aubameyang, a 28-year-old Gabonese worldwide, has developed into one of world football's most in-demand stars over recent seasons.

While Arsenal are claimed to be confident they can land Aubameyang, they feel the deal could drag on.
