Borussia Dortmund’s Gabonese striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is reportedly keen on joining Arsenal in this January transfer window.
Aubameyang is being linked with the Gunners as a replacement for Alexis Sanchez, who appears set to join either Manchester United or Chelsea.
A swap involving Olivier Giroud has been mentioned for the BVB striker, and BILD reports that the West African wants to see the move happen.
The 28-year-old forward has fallen out with BVB management and is eager to quit the German giants as soon as he can. BVB value Aubameyang at €60m.
BVB chief Michael Zorc says the antics of Aubameyang can no longer be tolerated.
"At some point a point has been reached where it can no longer be tolerated, and that's where we arrived today. I do not know what's going on in his head. We had a very controversial conversation.
"I have not seen this behavior from him for years. One thing is for sure: things cannot go on like this," said Zorc.
