The Borussia Dortmund striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is available for £65 million right now, and after scoring an amazing 36 goals in 45 appearances this season in the Bundesliga he is definitely worth every penny, especially to a team like Arsenal who are crying out for a top hitman to complete our already talented squad.
According to the Mirror, Man City are refusing to pay that price, but as the Gabon international has just turned 27 this week he should be in the prime of his goalscoring career.
After being snubbed by Jamie Vardy this is the chance for Arsene Wenger to prove that he has the ambition to match our bank balance, and even better, to get one over our oil-rich rivals Manchester City. Wenger has been banging on that the Gunners’ finances are now at a level where we can compete with the sugar-daddy rich clubs, so this is his big chance to prove it.
Every Arsenal fan and his dog knows that the club would have won the Premier League last season if we had had Aubameyang as our main striker with Olivier Giroud as backup, and Mesut Ozil would have easily smashed Thierry Henry’s assist record with ease.
We all know that Dortmund will not reduce their price and would rather let him leave for free next season, so Wenger must stop thinking with his economical head and try negotiating the price down. He should just slap the money on the table and grab Aubameyang before anyone else realises heis worth the money.
Just think of the shirt sales Wenger, while the fans can relish the thought of seeing Aubameyang shooting us to the title! You know it makes sense!
