Reports making the round suggest Arsenal are ready to offer Olivier Giroud to Borussia Dortmund to secure the signing of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, say reports
The report claims Arsenal are proposing a swap deal to secure the signing of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang from Borussia Dortmund this month, according to reports in Germany.
German outlet Kicker, as quoted by Metro, is reporting that the Gunners are prepared to offload striker Giroud as a makeweight as part of their deal to land the 28-year-old this month.
It is claimed that Arsenal have tabled a bid of around £44m, but that Dortmund want a fee closer to £60m for the Gabon international with the deal set to pull through in several hours.
The Metro further claims that Arsenal’s second offer for Aubameyang will be £52m plus Giroud, with the French striker joining the German side on a loan deal until the end of the season.
