As the ardent followers of Arsenal brace the cold of the winter to watch the fluid sides take on opponents, they might see a new addition of a world class player in the mould of Borussia Dortmund goal poacher Pierre Emerick Aubameyang, this is according to reports.
Arguably the best striker in the world at the moment, Aubameyang has been in the form of his life for the Signa Iduna Park outfit. Despite being converted from a winger to a centre forward, the 26-year-old has been in the form of his life.
He has fired Borussia Dortmund to second place on the Bundesliga table with 18 League goals in 17 games. Arsenal are reportedly preparing a £42 million for him, reports the Sun. But it will be difficult for Tomas Tuchel to allow his best player leave in January.
The fans of Arsenal have been clamouring for the signing of a prolific goal scorer as the conversion rate of Giroud has been appalling. With a player like Ozil playing behind Aubameyang, Arsenal would surely end the season as the club with the most goals in the League.
The Premier League title has eluded Arsenal for over a decade and they might not be able to steal the title this season without a striker in the mould of Aubameyang this season.
Ozil was signed in a record breaking sum and the Gunners have since reaped the fruits of signing him as he has led them to two FA Cups. Should Arsenal sign Aubameyang, he can fire them to the Premier league title and it would be a good piece of business.
However, if reports in the English press is anything to go by, Chelsea may be hijacking the deal after reportedly failing to get Alex Teixeria.
Should Chelsea be truly interested, we all know Arsenal will have no chance any more. The Blues will be willing to spend more money and will offer him more wages.
