No Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang as Borussia Dortmund travel to Berlin

Aubameyang Arsenal

Aubameyang was second only to Robert Lewandowski in the league with 25 goals while a certain Henrikh Mkhitaryan topped the assists charts with 15 to his name.

Dortmund are reportedly adamant that Aubameyang will not leave the club for any less than the desired sum of €70m.

With Arsenal's prolific forward Alexis Sanchez deciding where he wants to go, with Manchester United, Manchester City and Chelsea in a three-way battle for the Chilean, the Gunners have shortlisted Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang as his potential replacement.

"I can confirm that there has been a first request from Arsenal for Aubameyang", said Watzke.

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.

But Dortmund's sporting director, Michael Zorc, insists there is still a future for Aubameyang at the Westfalenstadion.




It is understood that Arsenal are set to give Aubameyang a way out of Signal Iduna Park by offering £53million for him. This is part of being a professional, to be able to admit that in one or two situations one has committed mistakes. Everything seems ok, but you never know what's going on in his head'.

The duo struck up a fine relationship on the pitch at Dortmund and Arsenal's fluid, attacking style of play may be the flawless platform on which they can pick up from where they left off.

While the general consensus among Arsenal supporters is that Aubameyang is the flawless signing to revive their top four challenge, one former player believes they should be aiming higher.

Zorc said there had been no offers made for the forward, who has been linked with a winter transfer to English side Arsenal.

Wenger, usually coy over Arsenal's transfer targets, was more open when discussing Aubameyang at his pre-match press conference this week.

"There's no doubt he has great skill, but I'm not sure he's the kind of footballer Arsenal need".
