In fact, the Sun says that Aubameyang's agent and father Pierre-Francois have flown to London to finalise his £53m move to Arsenal.

THERE'S genuine concern at Borussia Dortmund over whether their star man Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang will remain at the club.

Dortmund chief Zorc took offence to Wenger's comments, however, saying: 'We find it disrespectful to speak about players of other clubs.

Would Aubameyang displace anyone in the Arsenal what might have been XI?

Arsenal have already tested their resolve with an opening offer of £45m, which Dortmund confirmed they turned down.

"There's no doubt he has great skill, but I'm not sure he's the kind of footballer Arsenal need".

The switch between Manchester United and Arsenal for Alexis Sanchez and Henrik Mkhitaryan has set a precedent and the German club are now pushing for a similar deal.

The discussions over Aubameyang's future have now cast a shadow over Dortmund for weeks.

But Arsene Wenger's current iteration of Arsenal, the worst side of his 22 years at the helm, are barely a notch up from the club Aubameyang seems so desperate to leave.

Aubameyang's behaviour and poor discipline has worsened things this month, and Schurrle said that the squad had tried to talk to him about the situation, but have struggled to get through to him. The Gabon global spent his night off playing five-a-side football wearing a shirt with the name of Ousmane Dembele, who left Dortmund for Barcelona last summer, on the back.

Sky Italia journalist Gianluca Di Marzio claimed on Thursday night that Aubameyang had agreed personal terms with Arsenal over a three-and-a-half-year contract worth around £8.8m per season.

The duo struck up a fine relationship on the pitch at Dortmund and Arsenal's fluid, attacking style of play may be the ideal platform on which they can pick up from where they left off.
