Arsene Wenger responds to Dortmund's Aubameyang dig

Aubameyang Arsenal Borussia Dortmund transfer news

Borussia Dortmund striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang's potential move to Arsenal reportedly comes down to the availability of a certain player.

Arsene Wenger has offered an update on Arsenal's pursuit of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and insists the club aren't close to striking a deal with Borussia Dortmund.

Dortmund want Olivier Giroud as Aubameyang's replacement and have demanded that Arsenal include the French International in any deal they propose.

The Gunners want to recruit the Gabon global this month as they go in search of added attacking inspiration.

It's shaping up to be a busy end to the January transfer window for the Gunners.

Arsenal are now in talks with Dortmund over bringing Aubameyang to England before next week's transfer deadline.

Aubameyang's quality means he's still probably worth pursuing despite their similarities given Arsenal need to replace Alexis Sanchez, but Giroud-even if he is perhaps not quite as prolific as the other two-offers a different dimension to their attack.




The Bundesliga club value Aubameyang at £53 million and are unlikely to accept Arsenal's first bid.

"I said I didn't know anything about it".

According to BBC Sport's David Ornstein, Arsenal are confident of striking a deal over the next week, which will involve negotiations over the fee and possibly a player exchange.

Wenger has said the Gabon global would "fit in" at Arsenal.

And Mkhitaryan inadvertently fuelled hope among Arsenal fans that Aubameyang is on the brink of joining him in London when a video emerged of him posing in front of a camera before a green screen.

On the Armenian global arrival at Arsenal on Monday, Wenger told reporters, "We're replacing a very good player with a very good player, a world-class player with a world-class player". "But I adjust always what suits the players, the quality of the players, the balance of the team".

"It is vital as well to have players who have experience, because we have a very good bunch of young players but we know that it's not sufficient in the Premier League today to put them all in together".
