Goonersden brings you news from top football news sites from the likes of ESPN, SkySport, Daily Mail, Daily Star and Metro… We also Analyse football, player, transfer and predict Arsenal starting line-up.
Arsenal are set to miss out on one of its summer targets Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, according to reports.
Aubameyang has featured constantly in Arsenal’s rumor mill since his time at St Etienne and we have held a long-standing interest in the Gabonese international.
In the just concluded summer transfer window, Aubameyang was one of the numerous strikers linked with our club and we were made to believe that Wenger was determined to sign him.
However, Borussia Dortmund were reluctant to sell and turned down all inquiries, including ours.
Any hope of signing the striker in the future is set to suffer a huge blow as Manchester City have surged ahead in the race to sign the striker.
According to the Express, Manchester City have established contact with the player’s father who act as his representative.
Guardiola is confident of signing the striker as he prepares to axe Sergio Aguero who doesn’t seem to fit into his style of football.
Manchester City’s interest will be bad news for as many of us who are big admirers of Aubameyang as the Etihad club is prepared to table a huge bid and offer the player a huge salary package to join them.
Many of us have been clamoring for a world class striker and there will be thousands of angry people when we lose out on one who has been on our radar for a long time to a rival.
