Arsenal have been boosted in their pursuit of Borussia Dortmund forward Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, with the player indicating that he may be open to the prospect of a move away from Signal Iduna Park in the near future.
The Gabonese international was quoted telling Fussball Bild: “No one can predict the future… I cannot say that I’ll stay for another two, five or 10 years. It is possible that in June a club comes to an agreement with Dortmund.”
Aubameyang was also asked whether he would ever move to Dortmund’s arch rivals Bayern Munich in the future, to which he made abundantly clear that such a thing would never happen.
The 27 year old has been in superb form for his club so far this season, scoring 20 goals and providing 4 assists in 22 appearances.
Aubameyang, who is known for his agility and pace in the attacking third, has been known to be a target for Arsenal since his Saint-Etienne days. And only recently Dortmund director Hans-Joachim Watzke admitted that they may be ready to sell the player should they receive a substantially large transfer bid for him, thus putting the Gunners on high alert. Fans, meanwhile, would hope manager Arsene Wenger lines up a bid for the player soon enough so that they do not miss out on the chance to sign another quality forward in the times to come.
