The Arsenal fans in the Transfer Tavern are hoping to see the arrival of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang at The Emirates Stadium this month, but they are concerned by the latest report which could potentially scupper their chances of bringing him to the club.
Arsene Wenger has been rather busy in the mid-season window so far, and the supporters are hoping that the Frenchman has not concluded his business for the month just yet. Arsenal have already welcomed Greek centre-back Konstantinos Mavropanos to the club along with the Armenian ace Henrikh Mkhitaryan in a swap deal with Alexis Sanchez who moved in the opposite direction to Man United.
Since the deal for Sanchez and Mkhitaryan was concluded, speculation has intensified regarding the future of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang who now appears to be The Gunners number one transfer target.
Earlier this week, The Daily Star reported that Olivier Giroud was set to move on loan to Dortmund as part of the deal for the Gabon international striker, but according to reports from Sky Sports, Arsenal have no intention of including Giroud in the deal.
In response to the news, the Arsenal fans on Twitter have suddenly become pessimistic about their chances of signing Dortmund’s top-goalscorer this month, and they have expressed their dismay since the news broke yesterday evening.
Naturally, a handful of the supporters are still hoping that the club can manufacture a deal without Giroud, but there is no doubt that the news has shifted the mood amongst The Gunners faithful.
Here’s what the Arsenal fans had to say about Giroud’s apparent refusal to move on loan to Borussia Dortmund…
