Aubameyang’s presence at London Colney guarantees the striker’s move to the Emirates can be completed in time.
Be that as it may, it is understood that Arsenal are still sitting tight for Borussia Dortmund to approve any deal. The Bundesliga club allegedly needs a substitution set up before they allow Aubameyang join the North London club.
Meanwhile, David Luiz could end up joining Arsenal, if the latest reports are coming in are precise.
The Blues are reported to have offered the Brazilian centre-back to the Gunners, as he is deemed surplus to requirements at Stamford Bridge, where he has found it hard to play this season.
One of the bigger surprises of Antonio Conte’s first season, he has since ended up riding the bench alongside non-regulars. The Daily Star claims the West London club have offered the Brazilian to Arsenal in return for Olivier Giroud.
The Gunners are having some defensive struggles, while their London-rivals are desperate to land a striking alternative to Michy Batshuayi.
