Arsenal Target Double Move For Malcom and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang
Arsenal transfer news: Arsenal hoping to seal ambitious double deal for Malcom and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang
The Gunners are willing to launch £98million double swoop for Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Malcom, according to reports.
Arsene Wenger is working hard to secure the duo as he seeks to replace the outgoing Alexis Sanchez, who is expected to complete his transfer to Manchester United.
The Arsenal boss has admitted that Sanchez could leave the club in the next 48 hours and told talkSPORT that he did not select Sanchez to take part in a 2-1 defeat to Bournemouth on Sunday as he was unsure of the Chilean international’s focus.
Now the Gunners have moved to strengthen their attacking options by targeting Bordeaux’s Malcom and Borussia Dortmund’s Aubameyang.
Sky Sports pundit Guillem Ballague is suggesting that the north London club are working to finalise deals for both Malcom and Aubameyang.
A deal for Aubameyang, looked more of a possibility after the Gabonese striker was dropped from Borussia Dortmund’s squad against Wolfsburg after missing a team meeting.
“We simply cannot tolerate this kind of behaviour,” said Dortmund sporting director Michael Zorc.
“I don’t know what’s going on in his head right now. He has always been a professional. I don’t want to take part in media speculation, but we can’t continue like this anymore.”
And according to The Sun, Malcom’s move to the Emirates is even closer to completion after the Bordeaux winger’s agent was pictured at a tourist spot in London.
According to French journalist Nicolas Morin, a deal taking the exciting winger to England is very close and that the player himself has already told the Bordeaux squad of his imminent departure.
