Arsenal is yet to meet Borussia Dortmund’s price for the Gabon International with only four days left in the January transfer window but there is likely to be a headway for them.
The Gunners are fully aware that time is not on their side on their Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang pursuit although things might now work in their favour.
Arsenal Manager, Arsene Wenger recently informed reporters that the North Londoners are not close to securing the Dortmund’s forward despite losing Alexis Sanchez to Manchester United they seem to be unwilling in meeting the striker’s price.
The Bundesliga side values the forward at $85m and thus want this price paid before considering selling. Wenger’s side, however, has only offered $71m for the 28-year-old.
Dortmund has thus grown upset with the Gunners and could be uninterested in the deal as time passes by but one thing that could work in Arsenal’s favour is the fact that a few key figures want Aubameyang out.
According to Sky Sports Germany, managing director Hans-Joachim Watzke and sporting director Michael Zorc are two authorities who believe the club would be better off without the wantaway attacker. This could go a long way to benefit the Gunners in this transfer saga.
Club Manager, Peter Stöger appears to be more lenient as he is likely to involve the former African footballer of the year in their Saturday Bundesliga clash with Freiburg.
Truly, a lot can happen between now and the transfer deadline by Wednesday. The Arsenal board could finally loosen their hold of their financial constraints and meet Dortmund’s asking price in time to have him available for Tuesday their Premier League’s clash with Swansea. However, things might also not go the way it is predicted which will be to the disappointment of the fans.
