There is one name on every Arsenal fan's lips right now; Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

It might be a bit of a mouthful, but it is looking ever more likely that the Gabonese striker will complete a move to the Emirates from Borussia Dortmund.

Aubameyang has been desperate for a move away from the club for some time now, with moves to the likes of Manchester City and Real Madrid collapsing in the past.

Finally, the Bundesliga's second most feared hitman - just behind Robert Lewandowski - is about to get the chance to show his skills in the Premier League.

Despite picking up two internal suspensions, he's scored 13 times in 15 league appearances this season, an output which Arsenal are crying out for.

According to BBC Sport journalist Gary Al-Smith, Arsene Wenger's side will pay €60m for his services on a three-year deal, with the Arsenal boss promising 'world-class reinforcements' in the summer.

However, there's one revelation made by the respected journalist that will certainly not go down well with fans, as it appears Aubameyang has an ulterior motive for the move.


So, the flashy striker - who turns 29 in June - views this Arsenal move as almost a stepping stone, a way to get one last shot at his dream move to Real.

Last January, Aubameyang made it clear of his desire to move to the Bernabeu.

"If I want to go to the next level, I need to leave in summer," he said to RMC Sport.

"But we must see the proposals and if I'm going to play. Real Madrid is still a dream, but there has been too much noise."

Sadly, that ship may have sailed, with Real surely unlikely to replace their already ageing forward line with a 29-year-old.


The striker's saving grace in the eyes of Arsenal fans will surely be the way he mugged of Spurs' advances back in 2012.

He said: "Tottenham tried to sign me in June 2012.


"But in the end everything became a bit weird. I didn't really like the way things were done.

"If Spurs ever came back in for me, I'd say no."
