Reports this afternoon say that Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is at the Arsenal training ground to complete his move to the Gunners.
The 28 year old travelled from Dortmund to London earlier today, with tens of thousands of Arsenal fans online tracking what is believed to have been his flight with the FlightRadar website and app.
Aubemeyang was spotted earlier at Dortmund airport with his ‘people’ and is now apparently at London Colney to undergo a medical and complete the formalities of the move.
We don’t have any more detail at this point what the terms of the deal will be, or whether Olivier Giroud will be involved. The Frenchman was set to be in the squad for tonight’s game against Swansea, but there are growing rumours that he could go to Chelsea in a transfer which could see David Luiz move the other way.
It seems Arsenal are now fully committed to this January transfer improv session, making it up as they go along and having a grand old time doing it.
At the very least it makes the final day and a half of January interesting, and we’ll wait for further developments as and when they happen.
