BBC journalist adds to claims that Arsenal have agreed £53m Aubameyang fee

Arsenal are closing in on a move for Pierre Emerick-Aubameyang, according to emerging reports on Sunday evening.

The Gunners confirmed one of the January transfer window’s biggest stories on Monday as Alexis Sanchez was allowed to join Manchester United with Henrikh Mkhitaryan moving to north London in return.

Arsene Wenger received all sorts of criticism for allowing one of his key players to run down his contract and eventually leave the club, but all of that could change, depending on how the transfer window concludes.

Last weekend, three club officials from Arsenal were spotted in Germany on the reported mission of trying to finalise a deal for Pierre Emerick-Aubameyang.

And even though the deal stalled in midweek due to Arsenal’s unwillingness to match Dortmund’s asking price, an agreement is still on the cards.

BBC journalist Michael Gravesande added on Sunday that claims in Germany are indicating that the Gunners have finally agreed a fee of £53million (€60million) for the Gabonese striker.
