Reports from the Telegraph, claims Arsenal target Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is believed to have a verbal agreement to join Arsenal and the Gunners now need to agree a deal with Dortmund, who would ideally like to take Olivier Giroud in the other direction.
Arsenal’s interest in Aubameyang and Mkhitaryan has been driven by recently-appointed head of recruitment Sven Mislintat, who helped to sign the pair for Dortmund.
But the Gunners’ transfer policy has been criticised by former striker Ian Wright, who said: “Everything that is happening is being forced on them through other people.
“Mkhitaryan is not a player Arsenal have been after – he’s a player that Arsenal have been handed.
“It’s the same with Aubameyang – a couple of years ago, he was on everyone’s radar but now he’s gone a bit cold. Then all of a sudden, he’s on Arsenal’s radar – it all feels panicky for me.
“Of course they are both quality players. But if you are losing Sanchez, you need players that will hit the ground running. I’m not sure about Mkhitaryan’s state of mind right now.”
