Arsenal would need another world class attacking player to come in if that were to happen, and Aubameyang seems to fit the bill perfectly.

The 28-year-old has been a prolific scorer in his time in Germany, winning the Bundesliga top scorer prize last season with an impressive record of 31 goals in 32 games.
Arsenal fans will hope some progress can be made on Aubameyang as they will be sick of seeing their club lose top players and often not replacing them.
