Arsenal fans in the Transfer Tavern almost choked on their pints this morning after reports suggested the Gunners are eying an audacious swoop for a world-class striker.
The Sun states Arsenal will lodge a £42m move this month to land Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang from Borussia Dortmund, which would provide a huge boost to the Gunners in the Premier League title race.
Aubameyang has enjoyed a scintillating performance in German football so far this season, with an incredible tally of 24 goals in 23 games so far this term- and he’s told friends he wants to play in the Premier League.
“An intermediary has made contact with Dortmund about Pierre-Emerick making a move to Arsenal. Wenger knows the fee is very high — yet this is a striker who can make a massive difference for him and help win the title for the first time in 12 years. But there is a lot of interest in him.”
Such a transfer for Arsenal would signal a major statement of intent, whilst the price would put Aubameyang near the top of the Gunners all-time most expensive signings, behind only Mesut Ozil.
Arsenal fans, would Aubameyang assure you of Premier League success? Let us know in the comments below!Like what the TT have on offer? Sign up for more notifications!
