Some good news for Arsenal fans today, as it looks like if they are unlucky enough to miss out on long term target Karim Benzema, another star striker could take his place in arriving at the Emirates.
The Metro are reporting that the ever prepared Arsene Wenger, has Borussia Dortmund hit-man Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang lined up as a back up option, should the speculated deal for Benzema not come off.
The Gabon International was linked with a move earlier this window but that rumour fell into the shadow of any chances Arsenal may of had, and may still have of signing Benzema from Real Madrid.
However it now looks like Wenger has renewed his interest in the 26-year old, with any deal with Madrid looking unlikely now.
We asked our landlord here in the Tavern his thoughts : “Mmmm I am not sure, Aubameyang is decent but he is no Benzema is he?”
What do you think Arsenal fans? Willing to put down your pints and listen to this one? Or is it just talk? Let us know your thoughts below!
