Arsenal fans could be forgiven for hoping that our England international striker Danny Welbeck suffers a setback on his road to recovery from the injury that has kept him out of action since the latter stages of last season. Because if that is what it takes to get Arsene Wenger to splash the cash in the January transfer window then so be it.
Wenger said in the summer, after not signing a single outfield player to boost our Premier League title hopes, that there simply were no players available that would increase the quality of the Arsenal team, but he cannot say that this time after reading the Metro report about Europe´s top striker being available.
The player is the Gabon international star Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang who has scored an incredible 22 goals in just 22 games for Borussia Dortmund, with 14 of those being in the Bundesliga and putting him level on the league scoring charts with Robert Lewandowski.
The report reveals the exciting news from the German media that the pacy and prolific young player will be allowed to leave Dortmund if the right offer comes along. And it just so happens that their valuation of Aubameyang is jujst shy of the Arsenal transfer record that Wenger spent to sign Mesut Ozil from Real Madrid.
He is on fire, Arsenal can afford him and his club will sell, so what else can stop Aubameyang becoming a Gunner in January?
