Yesterday news broke that Arsenal are keen on signing Borussia Dortmund’s Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang. According to the reports, Wenger is ready to bid 28 million for the Garbonese international winger.
This has got many Arsenal fans buzzing on the social media as many see the player as a big upgrade to Theo Walcott and looking at his stats, these people who rate the African ahead of Walcott. However, knowing how Wenger operates, the supposed move for Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang may way be a smoke screen for Marco Reus who has been linked with a move to Arsenal in the last few transfer windows.
Let me explain
Just before we signed Gervinho, we were linked to signing Hazard and we were thought to be watching him keenly but ended up with the Ivorien. Also, we were linked to the signing of Rondo from Malaga but ended up signing Carzola.
Could Marco Reus be on his way to Arsenal? He will be a massive upgrade on Theo Walcott and can be a reliable backup/competition for Olivier Giroud. His versatility means he can play on both wings which means we can give Sanchez sometime out and play the German anytime the manager wants to rotate.
And knowing how Wenger operates in the transfer market, this is one transfer that will not surprise me if it happens.
