Arsene wenger spoke to the media and say that Arsenal are still in talks to bring a player.
Aubameyang is wanted by Arsenal
The Gunners boss spoke to the media saying that Arsenal are eyeing to land Borussia Dortmund star Pierre Emerick Aubameyang, but they are far from close at the moment.
Dortmund rejected a bid in excess of £50m from the Gunners for Aubameyang, but Arsenal are still hopeful of bringing the Gabonese International at the Emirates. Arsenal officials are at Dortmund and negotiations are ongoing between the two clubs but nothing is conclusive yet.
“I cannot tell you more, nothing to announce today. At the moment we stay where we are. It’s still possible [something could happen] but we are far from being close,” the French manager said.
He also added that there is a possibility that they will recruit someone, but there is nothing to announce at present as they are not close yet.
The North London club have already made two signings this window, Konstantinos Mavropanos and Henrikh Mkhitaryan have joined the club while Chilean Alexis Sanchez left to join Manchester United. There have been a massive demand among the Arsenal faithfuls to add some strength to the squad, and it seems that the club are trying the same.
Dortmund star Aubameyang already has expressed his will to join Arsenal and also was excluded from the squad for disciplinary reasons.
Dortmund are interested in a deal that involves Olivier Giroud going on the other side on loan but the North London club are only interested on a cash only deal. Arsene Wenger although hasn’t given any interesting hints, but reports confirm that the Arsenal officials are confident that they will get the deal done before Arsenal’s Premier League clash at Swansea.
Arsenal are through to the Carabao Cup Final after their win over Chelsea and will meet Manchester City in the Final.
