Arsene Wenger confirms Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang deal is done – before Arsenal delete post-match video
ARSENAL managed to leak the Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang transfer on their OWN website last night.
The Gabon striker was at Arsenal’s training ground on Tuesday to thrash out terms ahead of his £60m move.
Arsene Wenger appeared to confirm Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang as an Arsenal player following his side’s defeat to Swansea.
The Gabon striker was at Arsenal’s training ground on Tuesday to thrash out terms on a £180,000-a-week deal ahead of his £60m move from Borussia Dortmund.
But Dortmund will only let the deal go through once they have brought in a replacement.
That man is likely to be Michy Batshuayi, which will see Arsenal striker Giroud take the Belgian’s place at Chelsea.
There is still a lot of work to do but Arsenal seemingly posted a video on their website after the defeat, with Wenger suggesting the move was completed.
The post-match clip has since been deleted but footage has emerged on social media from the apparent interview with the club’s official website.
The reporter asks: “Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is an Arsenal player, you must be delighted to get the deal done?”
Wenger replies: “Yes, it is good news. We need people who can give us more offensive power.
“At the moment, we aren’t enough going forward and I am convinced he will give us that.
“He has a big challenge in front of him. He wants to do well in the Premier League.
“It is absolutely good news for us.
“His pace, his finishing. The quality of his runs. His huge physical capacity, that will be important in the Premier League.”
We can thekillerpunch says, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is not the solution to Arsenal’s problem, but he will help.
