Borussia Dortmund have confirmed that Arsenal have made an official bid for Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.
The Gunners have been strongly linked with the Gabon forward throughout the week but until now no offer had been made.
That’s changed today, with Arsenal lodging a €50m bid for the striker, with the German side believed to be holding out for something closer to €60m.
Dortmund confirm first bid.
CEO Watzke: "I can confirm Arsenal have made an enquiry, the figure has been named in England and we won't comment." https://t.co/VuMZsk9o2v

It now remains to be seen if the Gunners can go higher and make this happen.
Youthful attacking options on the bench today against Crystal Palace illustrate just how badly we could use some quality added to the team, so let’s hope there’s no delay and they can get this one done asap.
