Borussia Dortmund manager Peter Stoger is eager for the club to come to a final solution over Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s proposed move to Arsenal.
The Gunners are hopeful of bringing in Aubameyang before the January transfer window closes next week to fill the goal-scoring void left by Alexis Sanchez, who completed his move to Manchester United on Monday [22 January].
Arsene Wenger’s side have made a second offer for the Gabon international which is in the excess of £50m, according to the Evening Standard.
Arsenal are reluctant to break their club record transfer fee on a striker for the second time in seven months following Alexandre Lacazette’s arrival from Lyon last July, but with Dortmund holding out for £55m, they may have little choice but to do just that.
And Stoger has suggested he is eager to see Aubameyang’s future decided as soon as possible.
“All I can say is that we would like to have a solution at some point, no matter what it looks like,” the Dortmund boss was quoted as saying by Süddeutsche Zeitung. “Clarity would do us good as a team.”
