Arsenal Agree £55.5m Aubameyang Fee
Arsenal have reached agreement in principle with Borussia Dortmund over the club-record €63m (£55.5m) signing of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, though the completion of the deal may yet hinge on rival clubs, including Chelsea, securing their own reinforcements as the January transfer window looks set for a frantic finale.
Negotiations have been ongoing for Aubameyang for a fortnight with Arsenal always confident a deal could be concluded after the player made clear his desire to move to London. The Gabon international has agreed a contract to 2021 believed to be worth around £180,000 a week, which would make him the highest-paid player at the Emirates Stadium.
The striker is said to be on his way to London and that Dortmund are hoping to sign Batshuyi from Chelsea as a replacement.
