Premier League giants Arsenal make contact over the potential £42million move to sign Borussia Dortmund star Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang during the January transfer window, according to reports from the Sun
With the January transfer window reopening, Arsenal are expected to be busy in the transfer market and it is expected that the Gunners will be going all out to sign a new striker in order to boost their title aspirations.
Borussia Dortmund star Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has widely been mentioned as a target for Arsenal over the past few months and in a further development to the story, it has been claimed that the Gunners are set to go all out in order to secure the services of the Gabon international.
According to reports from the Sun, Arsenal have already established contact with Borussia Dortmund over the potential signing of Aubameyang and are prepared to splash as much as £40million to secure the services of the 26-year old.
A source told the Sun, “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.”
Aubameyang has been in sensational form for Dortmund so far this season, scoring an impressive 24 goals in just 23 appearances and the arrival of the striker would surely serve as a huge boost for the Gunners.
