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!

Whoever deals with our transfers want sacking immediately. We see the same thing time and time again. If I did my job this bad I'd be shown the door so why don't the Arsenal board do the same thing? This is a total disgrace and makes our club look pathetic!!!!!

Sorry mate. I disagree. We dont always have to see the bad side of everything. Yes the club had shown lack of ambition in the past but seems to want to depart from such lowness.

Transfers like these are not easy. ( you can ask Barcelona with Continho or liverpool with Van Dyke.) My point is there is no need to predict gloom and rile fans when clear attempts are being made.
