Arsenal told to forget Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang transfer

Jan Aage Fjortoft says Borussia Dortmund won't sell Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang

Borussia Dortmund won’t sell striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang amid interest from Arsenal in the January transfer window, according to Jan Aage Fjortoft.

The Gunners have been linked with the Gabon forward after Aubameyang’s impressive return of 24 goals in 23 games in all competitions so far this season.

According to a report in The Sun, Arsene Wenger is ready to table a £42m offer for the 26-year-old Dortmund star to cement the north London side’s Premier League title bid.

However, Bundesliga expert Fjortoft has told Arsenal to forget about signing the striker, who has previously been linked with their Premier League rivals Liverpool.

Arsenal have also been linked with a move for Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema in the January transfer window.
