Dortmund confirm Arsenal approach for Aubameyang

However, this comes despite and before Arsene Wenger went on to say, "Aubameyang no, nothing is happening".

THERE'S genuine concern at Borussia Dortmund over whether their star man Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang will remain at the club.

Gunners boss Arsene Wenger wants to add world-class attacking talent to his side and sees Aubameyang, a former team-mate of Mkhitaryan at Dortmund, as the flawless forward to complement the likes of Mesut Ozil and Alexandre Lacazette.

According to German magazine, Kicker, Dortmund want 70 million euros ($85.6m) for last season's top-scorer in the German league.

Chief executive Ivan Gazidis has flown to Germany for talks with Borussia Dortmund over the Gabon worldwide who is set to cost more than £50million.

Arsenal are now set to make a second bid for Aubameyang, who was left out by Dortmund for their 1-1 draw at Hertha Berlin on Friday night.

"There's no doubt he has great skill, but I'm not sure he's the kind of footballer Arsenal need".

When asked about Mkhitaryan joining the Gunners in a swap deal for Alexis Sanchez, he replied, It happens only one way if the other way happens as well.

'Aubameyang has wanted out of Dortmund for more than a year.

'We assumed that Arsene Wenger would have enough to do to take care of the performances of his own players!'

He even wore a Dortmund shirt with "Dembele 7" on the back, a nod to former teammate Ousmane Dembele.

Aubameyang is also being cavalier on social media, biting back at criticism from a German journalist Michael Makus on Twitter, who suggested Dortmund should punish, and keep the striker, rather than sell him.

It was the third time in just over a year that Dortmund dropped the player for disciplinary reasons.

Not only did they land one in the summer in Lacazette, but they appear intent on replacing another in Sanchez immediately with Aubameyang.
