Yesterday, news emerged from highly reliable German media outlet BILD that Arsenal are planning a move for high rated Gabonese international wing forward Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang. According to the report, Wenger has been watching the African ever since he played against the gunners in the champions league last November.
However, whats interesting is the fact that Dortmund are reported to have made a bid of 6.5 million for Club Brugge’s Obbi Oulare. Could it be that Dortmund are interested in the player as a replacement for Arsenal bound Aubameyang?
One thing is certain, Wenger likes the high rated Gabonese and he likes his wingers to be goal getters – Freddie, Bobby, Sanchez and Theo are perfect examples. Also, a move for the Gabonese could afford Wenger the opportunity of playing Walcott more centrally next season.
He has been linked to Arsenal in the past. He was reportedly on his way to Arsenal just before he signed for Dortmund about three years ago and knowing Wenger, once he likes a player, he continues to monitor them – Sanchez and Cazorla.
Aubameyang scored 25 goals and created 10 assists for Dortmund in about 40 games in all competition last season despite playing as a wing-forward not as the main striker.
