German tabloid Bild are claiming that Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has agreed to join Arsenal.

But multiple other reports are claiming that Borussia Dortmund will only finalize the transfer once they find a replacement to the outgoing striker. So we decided to take a look at how the move of Aubameyang can affect the transfer plans of a few other clubs.


  • Arsenal submit a bid of £50 million for Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang as soon as Alexis Sanchez’s move to Manchester United is finalized.
  • Borussia Dortmund reject the bid as it falls short of their asking price.
  • Bild are reporting that Arsenal and Dortmund have agreed on a transfer for Aubameyang.
  • The Telegraph are also reporting that a deal has been agreed.
  • Aubameyang will put pen on paper to a three-and-a-half year deal and the transfer fee is expected to be in the region of £55.4 million.
  • Aubameyang will receive £180,000-per-week in the form of wages.
  • Borussia Dortmund will only finalize the deal once they manage to find a replacement.
  • The Bundesliga outfit are looking at Arsenal’s Olivier Giroud and Chelsea’s Michy Batshuayi as possible replacements.
  • Giroud who is a transfer target for Chelsea will prefer to join the Blues as he does not wish to move out of London.
  • BVB’s next best option is Michy Batshuayi and they want the Chelsea outcast on a loan deal for the rest of the season.
  • Batsuayi also wants to move out of Stamford Bridge so that he can get more game time.
