Arsenal close in on St Etienne star Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang

Arsenal are tracking Saint-Etienne striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

The Daily Mail says the club's scout, Gilles Grimandi, had a close look at Aubameyang in the 2-2 draw with Rennes on Friday night, in which the Gabon player scored his 16th goal of the season.

Already highly-regarded in France, Aubameyang has moved onto the radar of a number of Premier League sides, many of whom have sent over scouts to watch him.

Arsene Wenger is expected to deploy Grimandi and chief scout Steve Rowley to more Saint-Etienne matches before the end of the campaign, as Arsenal ponder a £10m move.
