Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has agreed personal terms with Arsenal, and is just waiting for Borussia Dortmund to finalise a deal, according to a report.
The Daily Mail report that the Gabon international is trying to force through a deal after being ditched from the Dortmund starting lineup for disciplinary reasons.
Aubameyang has scored 21 times this season alone, and would be the perfect replacement for Alexis Sanchez should he leave the Gunners this window.
The prolific striker has reportedly told Borussia Dortmund that there is no coming back from his latest ban, and would like to leave the club.
This is 28-year-old’s third internal suspension in 12 months.
Football Insider verdict:
Pierre-Emerrick Aubameyang is exactly what Arsenal need. He is a goal machine, with lightning pace and skill, he would terrify Premier League defenders. Some fresh legs amongst the down in the dumps squad could be what is needed to refresh the Emirates, and reignite some fire amongst the ranks. The Gabon international does bring with him some cause for concern with regards to his behaviour issues however, and Wenger will not want another distraction following the Sanchez debacle.
