Aubameyang to Arsenal not close, says Wenger

Aubameyang to Arsenal not close, says Wenger

Arsenal are hoping to bring in Borussia Dortmund striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to offset Alexis Sanchez's departure to Manchester United.

Arsene Wenger has revealed Arsenal "are not close to doing any deals" but revealed that the club are in talks with Borussia Dortmund for forward Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

The Gunners have already made one offer for the Gabon worldwide which was confirmed by Dortmund's CEO Hans-Joachim Watzke this week.

In an interview, Dortmund's chief executive Hans-Joachim Watzke has confirmed that the Gunners have made an approach for the Gabon worldwide.

"It'll be a decent window if Arsenal can get Aubameyang", said the Gunners hero on Tuesday's Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast.

"There's a way back into the team for him, but professionalism is part of that, which includes saying you've made a mistake in one situation or another", added Zorc.

But Dortmund have warned Arsenal the two deals will have no bearing on the other, reports RMC Sport.

And club officials have been in Germany attempting to finalise a deal for Aubameyang.

According to Sky Sports, Wenger had this to say when he was asked if he was confident of completing the deal: "Confident or not confident, I don't know".

The Gunners' dynamic display was a well-timed rebuttal to the critics who claimed the imminent sale of Sanchez to Manchester United would ruin their already troubled season. So this is a real opportunity for him to play in the Premier League.

In exchange, Arsenal will receive Henrikh Mkhitaryan, with the Armenian in London waiting for the deal to be finalised.

Discussing Arsenal's activity in the January market, Wenger continued: "We can buy players, we are busy on all fronts, we are open minded".
