Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang looks to be closing in on a move to Arsenal this month, and the player is in need of change almost as much as his new club needs his arrival.
The Gunners are believed to be lining up the Gabon international as a replacement for Alexis Sanchez, who is firmly keen to leave the club, and looks very close to agreeing a deal with Manchester United at present.
Alexis’ departure will leave a hole in our attacking threat, and his goals would need to be replaced, and our target from Dortmund is remarkably consistent at doing just that, having bagged 21 goals in his 23 appearances in all competitions.
The craziest thing about his form is that it comes amongst the player being deeply unhappy in his current situation, and barely even turns up to training as he looks to leave his current club.
Former professional footballer Alejandro Moreno is insisting that the deal is perfect for all the parties involved.
“He’s been going for a while now,” Alejandro Moreno said.
“The truth of the matter is he doesn’t show up on time to training, if he shows up at all.
“He’s been suspended, he wants to go, Borussia Dortmund want to move away from Aubameyang as well. He scores goals and that’s why you hang onto him.
“If you’re Arsenal at this point you’re seeing your talent going away. You’re seeing your season also going away.
“So it feels that it is perhaps a necessary move for Arsenal, in some ways a desperate move for Arsenal.
“But it is what you need to do, you go after Aubameyang simply because he is available and you’re going to pay what you have to pay in this transfer market.
“I think they both need it. Arsenal need it and Aubameyang needs a change as well.”
Are we a match made in heaven? Do we need him more than he needs the move?
