Arsenal offer Dortmund $61.1m for Aubameyang



Arsenal are truly in pursuit of Gabonese and Dortmund striker , Pierre – Emerick Aubameyang and have reportedly had a first offer of 50 million euros ($ 61 . 1 million ) rejected by his German club Borussia Dortmund.
Kicker magazine reported this on Saturday, saying that Dortmund have a different idea about the value of their star player.
Dortmund will not accept less than 60 million euros for Gabon hot- shot Aubameyang , who is under contract with Borussia until 2021 , reports said .
Aubameyang , last season ’ s top scorer in the German league with 31 goals, has been dropped by Dortmund for the last two games amid speculation he is chasing a move to the Premier League club .
Arsenal are reportedly on the verge of selling Chile striker Alexis Sanchez to Manchester United.
Dortmund CEO Hans – Joachim Watzke confirmed to SID, an AFP subsidiary, that there has now been contact with Arsenal, but said reports of a possible fee are “ speculation ” and “the first contact has not been about money ” .
Aubameyang was dropped for Dortmund’ s draws with Wolfsburg last Sunday and at Hertha Berlin on Friday after failing to attend a team meeting , and the club say he has lacked “ focus” in training .
His father , also his agent , was said to be in London this week to try to push through a transfer to Arsenal.
Aubameyang trained hard alongside Dortmund’ s reserves for an hour on Saturday.
His tempo was noticeably higher than it had been having been dropped by Stoeger for Friday’ s draw after the head coach thought the striker had been distracted in the final session before the Bundesliga match in Berlin .
On Friday, while his club was drawing in Berlin , Aubameyang played a kick -about game indoors with his friends in Dortmund.
German daily Bild report that he wore a Dortmund shirt bearing the name of Ousmane Dembele, who transferred to Barcelona in August after going on strike to force the German club to sell him for 105 million euros .
Before the draw in Berlin , Dortmund’ s director of sport Michael Zorc said Aubameyang was still in the club’ s future plans , providing he changed his behaviour .
“ There ’ s a way back into the team for him , but professionalism is part of that , which includes saying you ’ ve made a mistake in one situation or another, ” added Zorc .
