Arsenal's move for Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is expected to go down to the wire as the Gunners wait on Borussia Dortmund landing a replacement before allowing the striker to leave. Press Association Sport understands a deal has been agreed in principle between the two clubs — subject to Dortmund bringing in their own forward.

Arsenal have until 2300 tonight to get the transfer over the line and it could be touch and go given all of the factors and logistics at play. Reports have suggested the Premier League club will break their transfer record for the second time in just over six months following the arrival of France striker Alexandre Lacazette last summer.

Any move for Aubameyang is now dependent on Dortmund signing their own forward, with the Bundesliga transfer window open until February 2. They have been strongly linked with a move for current Arsenal striker Olivier Giroud.
