Arsenal and Liverpool on alert as prime-target skips training

AubameyangArsenal and Liverpool fans are rubbing their hands in anticipation and reserving a bottle of bubbly, with reports filtering through that a star player could arrive in the Premier League this month.

The Independent report that Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang missed training with Borussia Dortmund this morning, sparking fresh rumours that he could leave the German side in January.

The Bundesliga side stated he was absent for permanent reasons but that hasn’t stopped the rumour-mill, which continues to churn fresh speculation on a regular basis.

With 18 goals already in the Bundesliga this season, the 26-year-old Gabonese international leads the scoring charts and has risen to form; which led chief executive Hans-Joachim Watzke to address the situation earlier this week.

“One must never make the mistake to believe that a club like BVB is dependent on a player. We are not dependent on anyone. When Robert Lewandowski left, we found [a solution] and he even has three more goals than Lewa.”

“[The goal is that] our team stays together. We do not have as much money as the top stars in the Premiere League, but we have a lot of other things to offer – for example our players were able to celebrate Christmas.”

“Last year around this time, many journalists wrote that our top players would be gone. Hummels was at Manchester United. Gundogan was with [Real] Madrid, Manchester or Barcelona. And where are they now? Still with us.”

Our landlord believes that Aubameyang will be on the move this year but doubts a January switch will develop.

Will Aubameyang be a Premier League star by February? Let us know in the comments below!
