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:

In other Arsenal transfer news, it has been reported that a swap deal with Manchester United has stalled because of the wage demands involved.
