Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang 'hands in Dortmund transfer request' as Arsenal talks continue

17 January, 2018, 02:21 | Author: Greg Wolfe
  • Dortmund are closely monitoring Belgian forward Batshuayi who has failed to impress Antonio Conte at Chelsea starting just two of his 11 Premier League appearances this season

Up until now, there has been too great a distance between Mkhitaryan's wage demands and Dortmund's position, with his agent Mino Raiola determined to get him as good a deal as possible.

According to the Mirror, the striker has handed in an official transfer request.

Earlier in November, Arsenal appointed Sven Mislintat as the head of recruitment, with the German arriving at the Emirates from Dortmund. Having had a positive experience with the Gabonese worldwide, he'll be desperate for his new club to land the star.

So, this time next week, Aubameyang could be an Arsenal player, but he is unlikely to ever line-out for the club alongside Alexis Sanchez.

The former Barcelona man has less than six months left on his contract at the club and is expected to join Manchester United in the ongoing transfer window after City chose to end their interest in the Chilean global.

The Chilean could join Manchester United in the next 48 hours with Henrikh Mkhitaryan likely to come the other way in a player-plus-cash transfer. "One of them they want to close and finalise is Aubameyang".

The shooting remains under investigation. "There is no other situation quite like this to reference", Bennett said. Elements of involuntary manslaughter include the death of a person due to reckless actions by the person charged.


If Aubameyang is the only attacker signed by Arsenal this transfer window, sticking with a front three may be Wenger's best option.

Obviously, Borussia Dortmund have a high valuation of their Gabonese attacker.

The baffling issue is that Arsene is willing to pay 35 million pounds for a star, whose contract will expire in 2021. "They are optimistic - they think this is a deal that could be done".

Watch: All 13 of Aubameyang's goals so far this season!

The 28-year-old is still one of Europe's leading forwards with 21 goals in 23 games but he would not be able to play in the Europe League.

Aubameyang's situation at Dortmund is unclear, however it is no myth that staff and fans at the club are growing increasingly frustrated by his recent behaviour.
