Arsenal could finally complete a deal for Wantaway Borussia Dortmund star Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang having dropped a massive hint that he’s keen for a move to London to join Arsenal.
Aubameyang, 28, has handed in a transfer request at the Westfalenstadion and it’s understood the Gunners are in talks to bring the forward to the Emirates as Alexis Sanchez’s replacement.
Dortmund’s young English talent, Jadon Sancho, was recording an Instagram live video with Aubameyang in which the Gabon striker asked if he could be taken to London.
‘Can you bring me to London one day. I don’t know, just for fun. Because you told me London is on fire!’ he says. Aubameyang was left out of Dortmund’s Bundesliga clash with Wolfsburg at the weekend and chief Michael Zorc suggested that his days could be numbered at the club.
‘At some point you can’t tolerate it any more,’ Zorc said. ‘I don’t know what’s going on inside his head. We had a very contentious discussion today. We’re not used to this behaviour from him.
‘What is going on now is not to be tolerated by the club. It is clear: It cannot go on like this. I don’t know what is going through his mind. I don’t recognise him anymore. ‘There is trouble in the team and that is not good.’
