According to highly-respected Bundesliga expert Lee Price, Arsenal have agreed personal terms with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang regarding a move to the Emirates.
Aubameyang, a 28-year-old Gabonese international, has developed into one of world football’s most in-demand stars over recent seasons.
Since joining Dortmund from Saint-Etienne in 2013, the lightning-quick attacker has notched an incredible 98 goals in 143 Bundesliga appearances, doing a phenomenal job of filling the shoes left by Robert Lewandowski.
Balague’s report has since been backed by a number of other high-profile journalists, one of whom (Bundesliga expert Lee Price) has tonight claimed that Aubameyang and Arsenal have come to an agreement on the terms of a contract, with the Gunners ready to make the Gabonese star the highest-paid player in the history of the club:
‘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’ (Quotes via the Express).
