Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang comments on Arsenal transfer speculation

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang plays down speculation linking him with a January transfer to Arsenal

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has insisted that he has no plans to quit Borussia Dortmund to join Arsenal during the January transfer window.

The Gunners have been heavily linked with a big-money bid to sign the newly crowned African Player of the Year in recent days as Arsene Wenger considers bolstering his attacking options at Emirates Stadium.

Chelsea, Liverpool and Manchester United have also been credited with an interest in bringing the 26-year-old to the Premier League during the current transfer window.

However, the player himself has now seemingly ruled out a move to north London and says that he is happy at Borussia Dortmund.

Aubameyang is quoted as saying by Football365: “I don’t want to go to Arsenal. I won’t leave Dortmund soon.”
