Arsenal Agree R923m Deal For Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang?
Premier League outfit Arsenal have reportedly agreed a £55 million (R923 million) deal to sign Borussia Dortmund's Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.
According to German publication Kicker, the Gabon international will soon be on his way to the Emirates in a deal that will not see France striker Olivier Giroud go the other way, as previously reported.
It has been said that the Gunners initially had two bids for the African star turned down by the Bundesliga club, but things have progressed over the past few hours.
Personal terms are apparently yet to be agreed, but it is believed that this is merely a formality given the player's desire to move to North London.
The forward has come in for some harsh criticism in the past week and was booed by some of his own fans as BVB continued their winless start to 2018 when they were held to a draw with Freiburg at home on Saturday.
Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger apparently considers Aubameyang as the perfect replacement Alexis Sanchez, who left the Emirates club for Jose Mourinho's Manchester United.
Aubameyang has made 24 appearances for his German club so far this season, scoring 21 goals and assisting three further strikes.
