Borussia Dortmund have released a statement regarding Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and transfer links with Arsenal following recent speculation.
The Daily Mirror recently claimed the £60million-rated Gabon international is a target for Arsenal this January, with Arsene Wenger in need of a replacement for Alexis Sanchez.
Gianluca Di Marzio claims a deal taking the Chilean to Manchester United may now just be hours away, in what will undoubtedly be a huge blow to the Gunners.
Few players could offer Arsenal what Sanchez does, but Aubameyang’s goal record in recent seasons shows he could be a superb addition at the Emirates Stadium.
The 28-year-old has scored 141 goals in four-and-a-half seasons with Dortmund, and is one of the fastest forward players on the planet when he’s at full flow.
Unsurprisingly, Dortmund don’t sound too keen on losing their star striker, with Squawka News reporting that they released the following statement over the saga.

It read: ‘We find it disrespectful to comment on players from other clubs. There’s no contact to Arsenal. We assume Wenger has enough to do to care about the performance of his own players.’
With Wenger about to lose Sanchez in what promises to be a challenging transfer window, it certainly sounds like Dortmund are reminding Arsenal about sorting their own problems out before dragging them into it.
This follows Wenger himself commenting on the potential of signing Aubameyang, saying he would fit in well in his squad, which Dortmund have expressed as finding ‘disrespectful’.
Wenger was quoted on Arsenal.com as saying: ‘Yes (Aubameyang would be a good fit), because character can be a very positive note and it can be a very negative note. I believe overall you look at the achievements of a player during his career and usually, when a career has been very positive, the character has been used in a positive way.’
