£60m Arsenal transfer target spotted at airport on way to London

Posted by

Borussia Dortmund striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has reportedly been spotted at Dortmund airport to board a flight to London amid transfer links with Arsenal.

The Gabon international has shone in the Bundesliga, leading to interest from Arsenal this January as they look in need of new additions up front after the departure of Alexis Sanchez.

Aubameyang could be ideal for this Arsenal side and Sky Sports have claimed they have a £60million deal in place to bring him to the Emirates Stadium.

However, it remains to be seen how close the deal is to completion, with BBC Sport journalist David Ornstein explaining that it hinges on Dortmund bringing in a replacement.

It may be that Aubameyang jetting out to London, as claimed by AFC Stuff, means there is confidence the transfer can go through, but there is yet to be any strong speculation of a striker moving to Dortmund.

Ornstein has claimed Chelsea’s Michy Batshuayi could be an option, though that also rests on Olivier Giroud being allowed to leave Arsenal for Chelsea.

Fans will hope Aubameyang’s journey to London ends positively, with Gooners having their heartbroken a few too many times in the transfer market as they’ve lost big names and rarely signed too many of their own.

Flight Radar has also tweeted about a private jet journey from Dortmund to London which seemingly has Arsenal fans following closely…
