Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang: Linked with Man City.

Arsenal are closing in on a deal to sign Borussia Dortmund striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, according to reports on Monday.

Sky Sports claim that the Gunners are ‘close’ to agreeing a fee of around £60m for the Gabon international.

A deal has not yet been struck between the two clubs, but dialogue is ongoing over a switch this January, the report states.

Aubameyang was booed by sections of Dortmund’s support during their draw with Freiburg on Saturday.

Arsenal have already seen a number of bids for the 28-year-old knocked back, and the situation intensified on Friday after the German media accused Aubameyang’s father and agent of trying to engineer a move.

Sky Germany claimed on Saturday that Dortmund have now had enough of the entire affair, and directors Hans-Joachim Watzke and Michael Zorc are now accepting of the fact that the club might be better off if they sold the striker.

Sky reporter Maximilian Bielefeld says that Aubameyang no longer has a “good standing” with the rest of the squad, and that there are “many hostilities” towards him.
