Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang told to sign for Arsenal this summer

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is being urged to push through a move to join Arsenal this summer

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has been urged to push through a move to join Arsenal this summer by his Gabon team-mate Daniel Cousin.

The Borussia Dortmund star has been heavily linked with a transfer away from the Bundesliga club in recent days and the Emirates has been touted as a possible destination for him.

Arsenal are widely tipped to be one of the busiest clubs in the summer transfer window as Arsene Wenger looks to build a squad capable of winning the title next season.

Now, former Hull City and Rangers striker Cousin, has revealed that he has been urging Aubameyang to consider a move to Arsenal, where he could link up with playmaker Mesut Ozil.

Cousin is quoted as saying by Metro: “[He should join] Arsenal, because the team play very well but the team need another striker to win the title.

“And I think if he plays with Mesut Ozil, he will give good assists. I think he can play very well with this team.”

Arsenal have already secured the signing of Granit Xhaka this summer.
