Arsenal want Aubameyang to replace Alexis - insider

Arsenal are pushing hard to sign Borussia Dortmund striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang this week.

That's according to Spanish pundit Guillem Balague.

He wrote on Twitter: "Alexis Sanchez not fully agreed yet. United favourites and next 2-3 days key (nobody takes City out of equation yet). Meanwhile Arsenal want to close soon deal for Aubameyang, left out of squad today, for €60m (£53m)."

Aubameyang was dropped by Dortmund for their Bundesliga clash with Wolfsburg on Sunday.

The Gabon international was left out for 'disciplinary reasons'.

Dortmund boss Peter Stoger told Sky Germany: "He hinted briefly that he had forgotten the appointment, but the meeting was announced everywhere and several times.

"But anyone who knows me is aware that I am not vindictive. He can be back in action next week.
