Aubameyang update: Dortmund ready to agree deal with Arsenal at £57m

By on January 25, 2018

There have been some important updates regarding Arsenal’s pursuit of Borussia Dortmund striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang today.

We’ve been in negotiations with the German club all week after chief exec Ivan Gazidis, head scout Sven Mislintat and legal expert Huss Fahmy flew-out to Dortmund last weekend.

An opening offer of £44m was quickly rejected and Bild, via the Express, reported yesterday that our follow-up bid worth around £51m was also knocked back by the Bundesliga outfit.

Olivier Giroud then emerged as a key part of the negotiations with widespread media outlets saying that Dortmund wanted to take the Frenchman in part exchange for Aubameyang’s signature.

It initially seemed like a good idea as Giroud needs regular game-time ahead of the World Cup, Arsenal need to make room for Aubameyang and Dortmund need a replacement.

However, Sky Sports are reporting this evening that sources close to the negotiations claim that the Giroud talks have broken down and the striker will NOT be joining Dortmund this month.

Now it’s down to Arsenal to agree a straight cash deal and German outlet Sport1 are reporting that while Dortmund have been holding out for around £61m they are now ready to do business at £57m.

That’s still £6m more than Arsenal’s last offer but it’s a good compromise deal for both clubs and £57m is still an excellent price for a player of Aubameyang’s quality in today’s market.

However, even if we agree a deal at £57m there is still a stumbling block to overcome as Dortmund won’t sell the Gabon international until they’ve secured a replacement.

Chelsea’s Michy Batshuayi has been touted as a target but the Blues won’t release him until they sign another striker so it looks like we could be relying on our rivals to take care of their transfer business before the domino’s will fall.

It’s a precarious situation and it looks like our proposed move for Aubameyang is going to go down to the wire unless we can find a breakthrough in talks soon.

        Learn how to use words bro… Wenger is not ur mate and he not the owner of the club so if the owners of the club don’t want him let them sack him.

        Never has been in Wengers hands. An ex-agent details in his book how he got the Arsenal board to cough up 1.3mil for the Arshavin deal by saying he’d pay it, he didn’t the contract said Arsenal would pay. Board was furious but signed off with no time to negotiate. Deal never would of gone through had he not intervened. He goes on to say the entire time Wenger was pushing Arsenal to spend the extra money. Wenger has never been afraid to spend it’s a myth. He’s just too professional to moan to the press about his lack of funds from the board. Makes me believe that the rumor that we could of signed a certain Atletico player a couple seasons back but the board thought 80 mil was too big a risk despite having the cash were true.

    Why is the 2nd wealthiest club in the world who very rarely spend any money quibbling again over a price for an outstanding goalscorer.they insulted liverpool with an insulting offer and now the board and wenger are are at it again.supporting arsenal is becoming so tedious especially at transfer time,its like walking on hot coals waiting for a genuine bit of good news.get your bloody hands out of your pockets and get us what we deserve,a gooner fan all my life.
