Arsenal handed boost in race for Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang

Arsenal have been handed a major boost in their pursuit of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang after reports in Germany claimed that Real Madrid have cooled their interest in the striker.

The Gunners are claimed to have had an £80 million offer for the 27-year-old rejected by Dortmund in the summer transfer window.

Arsene Wenger also faced stiff competition from Madrid, while in December, the striker reiterated his desire to one day play for the Spanish club.

But SportsBild now claim that Madrid have discussed the potential signing of Aubameyang but the Gabon international is not the type of player who fits Zinedine Zidane’s requirements.

SportsBild report that Aubameyang doesn’t fit into the plans of Zinedine Zidane at the Bernabeu which makes a transfer to his dream club unlikely, however Manchester City are still circling for his signature.

Manchester City have been linked with the forward on several occasions and speculation regarding his future refuses to go away.

The report also claims that Aubameyang is still wanted by Ligue 1 big spenders Paris Saint-germain, who look the more likely club to sign the Gabon international.

Aubameyang has been in fine form for Dortmund this season, scoring 20 goals in 22 appearances in all competitions so far.
