According to reports, Arsenal have agreed terms with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to make him the highest earner in the club’s history, according to Bundesliga expert Lee Price.
German football expert Price has written two books about Bundesliga and is a reliable source of transfer news.
He revealed last year how Naby Keita was set for Liverpool and Sead Kolasinac would join Arsenal – weeks before they were confirmed.
And now it is his understanding that Aubameyang’s camp have come to an agreement which will see the Borussia Dortmund striker become the top earner in Arsenal history.
However, there is a catch. Price says the Gabon hitman will only move to the Emirates this month if Alexis Sanchez completes a move to Manchester City or United.
Price said: “Aubameyang has wanted out of Dortmund for more than a year. They were keen to cash in last summer despite agreeing a new deal.
“It was Dortmund’s belief that the Premier League cash would come eventually and it appears they will now get their wish.
“The player, meanwhile, rejected a move to China in the belief he would get a move to one of the European big boys.
“Arsenal would not have been his first choice but it’s very much a match of convenience. He wants to come to the Premier League and they need to replace Sanchez.
“I understand the contract which has been agreed will make him the club’s record earner ever. It’s now up to a fee to be agreed with Arsenal and the Sanchez sale to be wrapped up.”
