The signing of Pierre Emerick Aubameyang by Arsenal in a deal worth £60m is expected to conclude today, manager Arsene Wenger has indicated.
Previously, it was announced that Aubameyang had been signed based on a video clip that was uploaded by an Arsenal player, in which an interviewer was asking Arsenal Manager Wenger: “Aubameyang is an Arsenal player, you must be delighted to get the deal done?”
Wenger reportedly replied: “Yes its good news. We need people who can give us more offensive power, we aren’t efficient enough going forward. He has a big challenge in front of him, I want him to win the premier league. It’s absolutely good news for us.”
However, the video has been lately been deleted and Wenger insists that today is the deadline to complete the capture of the striker in a multimillion deal.
Should the deal go through the 28-year old Aubameyang will be Arsenal’s second signing of the month following the arrival of Midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan from Manchester United.
