The title of this article, even if it does turn out to be true, does not mean that Arsenal will soon have the Gabon international striker in our squad, as we would still need the player’s current club Borussia Dortmund to accept the transfer offer and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang would have to agree to become a Gunner this month.
But according to a Metro report the Arsenal board are doing everything they can to get Arsene Wenger his transfer target, as the report claims that the Gunners have made a massive transfer bid of 60 million euros for the 26-year old forward who has been smashing goals for fun in the Bundesliga and Europa League this season.
At the current exchange rate that price would work out to be just under £45 million and that would break the club transfer record of around £42.5 million that we paid Real Madrid for the brilliant German play maker Mesut Ozil over two years ago.
This news comes from the Spanish journalist Kike Marin who has been known to get these Arsenal transfer rumours right before, including the one about Alexis Sanchez coming to north London from Barcelona. However we have also had plenty of very realistic looking rumours turn out to be nothing, such as the Karim Benzema saga in the summer.
Is this another one of them or could Arsenal really be about to smash our transfer record for this prolific player?
