Arsenal interest in Aubameyang confirmed
Arsene Wenger has effectively confirmed Arsenal are interested in signing Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang but claimed that any possible deal is not close to completion. Any deal taking Aubameyang to Arsenal could see Olivier Giroud move to the Bundesliga club as part of the transfer and, while Wenger refused to go into specific details, he did effectively confirm he wanted the Gabon international.
The French coach told reporters: "We are not close to a deal for Aubameyang with Dortmund or anybody else. He is one of our possible movements but there are others."
Arsenal lodged their first formal offer for the 28-year-old forward on Saturday, with reports suggesting that Dortmund value Aubameyang at £53 million (€60 million).
