Arsenal Banter brings you latest update on Arsenal news from top media sites like Daily Mail, Metro, The Express, The Independent, The Telegraph, SkySports and so on.
Aubameyang has been desperate to play on the Emirates field and he is now going to get his wish as he is set to join the Gunners.
That’s after Borussia Dortmund and Arsenal came to an agreement over his transfer fee.
German publication Sports Bild claims the transfer could even be announced today.
It’s claimed Chelsea striker Michy Batshuayi will relocate to Dortmund on loan as a replacement for Aubameyang.
Aubameyang is one of European football’s most deadly finishers and Arsene Wenger wanted the 28-year-old on board to add firepower following Alexis Sanchez’s exit to Manchester United.
Arsenal got Henrikh Mkhitaryan as part of the deal that took Sanchez north, but Wenger has opted to bring in Aubameyang to add a ruthless streak to the Gunners attack.
One deal that won’t be happening, though, is Olivier Giroud signing for the Bundesliga club in exchange for Aubameyang.
Sport Bild claims the Frenchman has rejected a switch to the club, as he prefers joining Arsenal’s London rivals Chelsea instead.
