Aubameyang also stands to become Arsenal's highest paid payer ever. Earlier
Arsenal and Borussia Dortmund are working to finalize Aubameyang deal in next hours. Details and add ons to reach total agreement. Contract until 2021 and €10M/season ready for Auba. Work in progress... #AFC #Aubameyang #transfers— Fabrizio Romano (@FabrizioRomano) January 29, 2018
The Telegraph report says similar, estimating the player's weekly wage at £180,000.
It remains to be seen whether Olivier Giroud will head in the opposite direction, but Dortmund had previously insisted that they must have a replacement secured before the deal goes through. The Telegraph notes that separate talks over the Frenchman are now taking place.
Eager Arsenal fans have tipped Aubameyang to inherit the vacant number 14 shirt once worn with such distinction by Gunners legend Thierry Henry. The jersey was occupied by Theo Walcott for a decade until his departure to Everton earlier this month.
It had been thought that Aubameyang could take the number seven shirt - he wears 17 for Dortmund and previously wore seven at Saint-Etienne - but that was instead handed to new signing Henrikh Mkhitaryan soon after his arrival from Manchester United last week.
