Arsenal close to agreeing £60m Aubameyang fee

Borussia Dortmund chief Michael Zorc says Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang's family have been kept up to speed on negotiations with Arsenal.

The 28-year-old Gabon worldwide is set to become the Gunners' record signing just five months after they set that mark to bring Alexandre Lacazette to the Emirates. Arsenal has started several attempts so far.

Aubameyang was initially dropped as a disciplinary measure, the third time the Gabon striker had been sanctioned by the club in a little more than a year. "We have up to now refused them all".

Arsenal will allow Olivier Giroud move to Chelsea, if the Premier League champions pay his £35million asking price.

Aubameyang was in action for full 90 minutes in Saturday's Bundesliga game but could not add to his 13 league goals this campaign as Peter Stoger's men were held to a 2-2 draw by Freiburg.

Aubameyang is seen as the flawless replacement for Alexis Sanchez at the Emirates, who has moved North to Manchester Untied.




It doesn't make much sense for him to play because he's told them he wants to leave.

Manchester United's January business is likely at an end following the capture of Sanchez, but Bild say he could team up with compatriot Arturo Vidal at Old Trafford.

Arsenal also have a long-standing interest in West Brom's Jonny Evans, with the path seemingly clear as Manchester City close in on Athletic Bilbao centre back Aymeric Laporte.

Wenger signed highly-rated Armenian playmaker Henrikh Mkhitaryan in the Sanchez deal.

The deadline to complete the transfers is at 11pm GMT on Wednesday 31st January.
