Arsene Wenger appears busy in the current transfer window shopping for players to reinforce his weak squad losing two matches in a row.
Arsenal have made contact with Borussia Dortmund over a move for Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, reports the Telegraph .
The Gabon international has been recommended to the Gunners by the club’s new head of recruitment Sven Mislintat, the scout who brought Aubameyang to Dortmund back in 2013.
Malcom is also close to signing for Arsene Wenger’s team in a deal reportedly worth £44 million from Bordeaux.
Manchester United are closing in on a move for Alexis Sanchez from Arsenal and could throw in Anthony Martial as part of a deal for the Chile international, the Evening Standard reports.
The Red Devils are ready to throw in the France star as part of the transfer, which could prove decisive as the Gunners hold out for a fee of around £30-35 million. Manchester City, meanwhile, have stalled their interest.
Arsenal are exploring the possibility of signing Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Henrikh Mkhitaryan in addition to Malcom, reports the Daily Telegraph .
With Alexis Sanchez seemingly now on his way to Manchester United , the Gunners are searching for a replacement and are closing in on a £44 million deal for Bordeaux star Malcom .
But Arsenal are also interested in signing Aubameyang from Borussia Dortmund and the Gabon striker’s former team-mate Mkhitaryan from United as part of the Alexis deal.
Manchester City have pulled the plug on their pursuit of Alexis Sanchez, leaving rivals Manchester United with a clear run at tying up a shock deal for the Arsenal man in the coming days.
City made it clear on Friday that they would walk away from the deal if the total price of a January move did not suit them, and that is exactly what has happened.
