Reports making the round claims Borussia Dortmund sporting director Michael Zorc will fly to London on Saturday to finalise Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s move to Arsenal.
According to German website WA, Zorc will be in the British capital to negotiate the Dortmund striker’s switch to the Gunners.
Sportsmail reported that Arsenal are embroiled in a bitter row with Dortmund over their £53million pursuit of Aubameyang.
Speaking on Thursday, Wenger claimed Aubameyang had the right character to fit in at the Emirates.
Zorc hit back, saying: ‘It is a lack of respect. We believe Arsene Wenger has enough to think about when it comes to the performances of his own players.’
When pressed on whether Aubameyang’s character would fit in at Arsenal given his bad boy reputation, Wenger added: ‘Yes, because character can be a very positive note.
‘Look at the achievements of a player during his career and usually, when a career has been positive, the character has been positive.’
The report further claims the Gabon international has agreed a deal in the rejoin of £170k- a-week with Arsenal with a possibility Olivier Giroud will make the move to the other side.
