Arsenal have finally had their bid accepted for Pierre Emerick Aubameyang. The news broke late last night, with the fee reported to be in the £60m mark, similar to what Dortmund initially demanded from the Gunners.
Arsenal seem determined to get this one over the line as quickly as possible. Reports over the weekend suggested that the medical could even be carried out in Germany to ensure less time was wasted with travel. If this was the case, there is a possibility that the deal could be wrapped up and registered before today’s noon deadline to play against Swansea.
Personal terms have not been a problem for Arsenal, and it’s been reported that they’ve been tied up for weeks; it was simply the agreement of a fee holding up the transfer. If that is the case, Arsenal will have surely worked through the night to process the paperwork to fast track this deal, as this signing could be a major lift the Arsenal on Tuesday.
