Arsenal Close in on Aubameyang

Arsenal are on the verge of securing the services of Borussia Dortmund’s star Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang after both clubs agreed a £60 million fee in principle for the Gabon international, according to reports.

Aubameyang, 28, has been subject of negotiations between the Gunners and Dortmund for several weeks, with Arsenal refusing to meet the Bundesliga side’s £70m asking price.

The striker, who scored 31 league goals last season, was left out of two consecutive games for Dortmund after missing a team meeting, with head coach Peter Stoger accusing the front-man of not being focused.

However, Aubameyang started in Dortmund’s draw with Freiburg on Saturday amid claims from the Bundesliga side that a transfer would not be sanctioned if Arsenal reached ‘certain parameters’.

Aubameyang would join up with former Dortmund team-mate Henrikh Mkhitaryan at Arsenal after the Armenian joined the club in a swap deal which saw Alexis Sanchez head to Manchester United.

The duo combined for 62 goals in all competitions two seasons ago.
