Transfer: Arsenal Close to £60m Deal for Aubameyang

It remains to be seen whether Swansea would include midfielder Ki Sung-yeung in a swap

Any move for Giroud before the window closes depends on Arsenal completing the signing of Dortmund striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

With the 2018 World Cup fast approaching, Giroud knows that he will have to start playing and scoring goals as regularly as possible between now and the end of the season if he wants to be part of the Les Bleus squad that will travel to Russian Federation.

Premier League clubs, in particular, are close to completing permanent transfer deals for strikers and defenders from clubs overseas, while their players might switch clubs too, on loan deals.

The chances of Arsenal keeping hold of French worldwide Olivier Giroud have tumbled as the odds have been slashed on him moving to Premier League rivals Chelsea.

The former Montpellier star, who is on £90,000 a week at Arsenal, loves London, so may well prefer Chelsea to Dortmund. Further, Wenger is reportedly willing to sanction a deal to their rivals, provided the Blues pay £35 million for the centre-forward. Today, Arsenal remain confident of signing Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang....

The Bundesliga club turned down a bid of 50m euros (£43.64m) from Arsenal last Wednesday.

Aubameyang chose to play for Gabon rather than France or Spain which he would have also been eligible for. Rumors had it Chelsea were after a number of strikers, from Roma's Edin Dzeko to Stoke's Peter Crouch.

The paper suggests Arsenal will only sell Giroud to Chelsea for a premium price, and their current offer of £15m plus add-ons remains short of what the club are asking for.
