The main man Aubameyang should be confirmed later today as talks regards his transfer went into the final stages in Germany yesterday with Gazidis personally there to get the deal completed. The player will be expected in London over the next 24 hours to complete a medical and make the long awaited move to North London.
Jonny Evans is another that keeps popping up. It has been difficult in judging the actual interest and fans will argue for and against for the former Manchester United defender. At a believed £15m transfer fee there are worse defenders out there and for a lot more money. Evans’ experience will likely help at the back for Arsenal and one could argue that should Evans join Wenger’s side then the North London club have done the best January transfer business of all Premiership clubs.
West Bromwich Albion have reached an agreement to sign Egyptian centre-back Ali Gabr on loan until the end of the season which could trigger Evan’s release shortly.
Arsenal also still appear to be keen on Thomas Lemar of Monaco but will face strong competition from Liverpool who are rumoured to have agreed personal terms with the player but not with the Ligue 1 side. Monaco are holding out for at least £90m.
