According to Guillem Balague, Arsenal are ready to pay about €60m to land Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang from German side Borussia Dortmund in January.

However, he also claims that the Gunners are set to return with a fresh offer and that a transfer fee of about €60m (£53m) should be tempting enough to lure Dortmund into offloading the 28-year-old forward.
The former African footballer of the year has been in brilliant shape for the German Bundesliga outfit so far this campaign and has grabbed 13 goals and assisted three goals in 15 German Bundesliga matches so far for the side.
Meanwhile, the Gunners are currently preparing for the second leg of their Carabao Cup semi-final encounter against Premier League Champion Chelsea on Wednesday after their 0-0 draw with Conte’s men in the first leg this month.
