Transfer Rumour: Arsenal plan ambitious double swoop of Malcom and Aubameyang

Arsenal are increasingly confident of securing Borussia Dortmund striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang after holding productive talks with the Bundesliga club as they prepare for life after Alexis Sanchez.

BILD says he is said to be pushing Dortmund to let him make a £54million move to Arsenal.

With Chilean global Alexis Sanchez looking set to move to either Manchester United or Manchester City this month, the Gunners are eager to find a replacement for the South American forward.

Balague claims that the transfer may take a week to complete, but Arsenal believe that have convinced the player to join, and they now need to agree on a deal with Dortmund.

Aubameyang has been plagued with disciplinary in the recent past, and he was dropped at the weekend after missing a pre-match team meeting.

If Arsenal end up without Mkhitaryan in any deal for Sanchez, the club could potentially turn their attention to Bordeaux winger Malcom instead.

Accusations of indiscipline and poor time-keeping have dogged the Gabon global, who has also been extensively linked with a move to Chinese Super League side Guangzhou Evergrande.

Arsene Wenger is in the market for a new attacker to replace Alexis Sanchez with the Chilean global strongly tipped to join Manchester United this month after Manchester City withdrew their interest.

Aubameyang, one of Europe's most renowned goal threats, has been linked to a potential move to North London. Last season he netted 40 goals in all competitions and this season, so far he has scored 21 goals in 23 outings.

Dortmund's general manager Michael Zorc said: 'What is going on now is not to be tolerated by the club. "Without him, Sanchez simply can not go to United".

Aubameyang was previously suspended in November after repeatedly turning up late for training while in November 2016 he missed a Champions League game against Sporting Lisbon after taking a trip to Milan without approval from the club.

Do you think Aubameyang would be a good signing for Arsenal?
