The manger of English football club Arsenal has today confirmed his club is in talks with Germany Bundesliga side Borussia Dortmund over a possible transfer of Gabonese striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.
Journalists also asked Arsene Wenger if he was confident of signing the much sought after striker.
He said: “Confident or not confident I don’t know. At the moment we are not close to doing any deal, be it Aubameyang or anybody else. You never know how close you are.”
The 28-year-old Gabon striker is a proven goal machine.
If he signs for the Gunners, he will certainly boost the club which has struggled to convert many goal-scoring chances it creates.
So far this season, Aubameyang has scored 13 goals in 15 appearances.
He finished last season with 31 goals in 32 matches, and is currently just two goals shy of making it 100 goals in the Bundesliga since his arrival in 2013.
His mix of a measure of a “stubborn character” and “ambition” will certainly suit him in the cutthroat English Premier League.
