Dont be so stingy Arsenal. Pay the money for Aubameyang

By 1970's Gooner

Its the same every time. Arsenal trying to squeeze even the last penny out of a deal. Trying to get the player on the cheap when it is obvious that the valuation Dortmund placed on Aubameyang is about right considering todays market place.

We have already placed a bid for 50m or so, so we are not far away anyway. And we DO NEED to strengthen following Sanchez's departure AND WE DO HAVE AROUND 250M CASH SITTING IN THE BANK.

Aubameyang transfer to go to the wire with uncertain outcome

By 1970's Gooner

Lets get the so called facts right. 

It is a fact that Aubameyang wants to come to Arsenal and Arsenal do want him having sent over a strong delegation headed by Gazides to get the deal through. It seems that this a deal that Arsene wants badly enough having upped the money offered to 53m.

Dortmund want to get rid of Aubameyang as he has been very problematic with his attitude but they need to find a replacement and have asked for Giroud.

There are only 7 days left for the window to close and it seems that Dortmund have a slight bargaining advantage as they don't need to sell that badly and can wait till the next window in the summer. They also need to make sure that they qualify for the CL.

On the other hand Arsenal have, as always, left things very late again and are desperate to make up the gap that Sanchez has left behind as failure to get fourth place or a Europa Cup win is seriously looming ahead.

This will cost them a few more million as Dortmund are likely to press their advantage through. And I predict that Wenger will relent and allow Giroud to get his desired move to Dortmund thus improving his chances of a place in the world cup France squad.

But all this will probably unravel on dead line day at 12 o'clock at night ala Arshavin's transfer if you remember.

Nothing changes at Arsenal in the end!
