Arsenal fans are cautiously optimistic about Arsenal’s transfer window after it was reported that Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s dad had flown into London to help finalise the Dortmund striker’s £53m move to Arsenal.
Bild reported earlier on Wednesday that the Aubameyang’s father and agent had jetted into north London ahead of a move reported to be worth £53m.
Arsenal are at the centre of a number of big deals after it was reported that Alexis Sanchez had agreed terms with Manchester United ahead of a move to Old Trafford.
The Telegraph reported that Sanchez was on the brink of a four-and-a-half year deal that would be worth a total of £180m.
That would leave Wenger free to sign a replacement and Aubameyang is one of his top targets.
The Dortmund striker is said to have fallen out with his club after a disciplinary issue and wants a move to Arsenal.
However, Arsenal fans have been here before and are refusing to get too excited.
They agree that if the Dortmund striker signed, it would be a great transfer window for Arsenal, especially as Sanchez hasn’t been performing in the first half of the season.
Here is a selection of the best tweets from expectant Arsenal fans:
With Walcott gone and Sanchez going, I have this horrible feeling inside that we'll only get Mkhitaryan in. Malcom gone quiet and Aubameyang taking suspiciously long.
If that is the case, then we've made £37m profit this window. Where is it going?
I hope I'm wrong.

The way to look at it is that Aubameyang is Alexis replacement and Mhikitaryn is Theo’s replacement . When you look of it that way we are coming off better this window #afc

Aubameyang, Malcom + Mkhitaryan is a fair upgrade on Alexis and Walcott, who are both undeniably great. If we can pull of those transfers, can we consider it a good window? #AFC

If arsenal offload Alexis now and bring in Aubameyang and Mkhi it would be a true delight in my eyes. Upgrade for sure.

Yeah, I’m the same mate. Lacazette is good but Aubameyang is a notch above.

A great read about Aubameyang and how incredibly fortunate Arsenal are that he – a world class striker- is available right now, especially with Alexis leaving.https://t.co/xmoDRyIPm9
