I do not know if he is on the Arsenal transfer wish list of Arsene Wenger this summer, but if he is not then he should be, because Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is one of the hottest forwards in world football right now and even if Arsenal do somehow manage to persuade Alexis Sanchez to sign a new contract extension, the Gunners need more firepower if we are to stand any chance of reclaiming the Premier League title.
Maybe the boss is waiting to see whether the reported transfer bids for either Kylian Mbappe or Alexandre Lacazette are successful but according to a Metro report he does not have too much time to mess about with.
Aubameyang’s German Bundesliga club Borussia Dortmund have apparently agreed to let the pacy and prolific Gabon international go this summer, but only if they receive bids over £60 million for him. They have also put a deadline on his departure as the date when their pre-season training camp is due to begin, July 26th.
That is still over a month from now but surely this news will have clubs all over Europe on alert, especially as the price for a proven player who has scored 79 goals for his club over the past two seasons appears pretty cheap when compared with the money being talked about for Mbappe.
Over to you Arsene…
