Report: Borussia Dortmund contact Arsenal asking about 'unbelievable' player
Borussia Dortmund have reached out to Arsenal as they want information over the availability of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, according to a report from Tuttomercatoweb.
Aubameyang has not played for the Gunners since the defeat to Everton in December. He has since been stripped of the captaincy. And he has not been named in a match day squad for any of Arsenal’s last five Premier League games.
Several sides want the 32-year-old, despite his issues. Barcelona have considered a move. Meanwhile, Aubameyang is one of four Arsenal players on Newcastle’s radar.
Tuttomercatoweb reports that Juventus want the forward on loan. But interestingly, the report adds that Dortmund have also registered an interest.
They have asked for information on the Gabon international. Of course, he spent four and a half seasons with the Bundesliga side before moving to North London.
Arsenal offloading Aubameyang to Borussia Dortmund would be huge coup for Gunners
His record was absolutely outstanding for Dortmund. He scored 98 league goals in 144 games. That record included 44 goals in 48 top-flight fixtures in his final 18 months before his move.
BBC Sport reported at the time that he had been suspended after missing a team meeting. But obviously, much has changed since he left the German side.
It would still be a big surprise to see Aubameyang return to Westfalenstadion. Dortmund have a number of exciting, young attacking players. Erling Haaland, of course, is the man frequently dominating the headlines.
Aubameyang is on eye-watering wages. And he has not been at his best for several months. It was some time ago, for example, that Rio Ferdinand labelled him ‘unbelievable’.
So getting Dortmund to take him back would be a huge coup for Arsenal.
