Arsenal signed striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang of Borussia Dortmund for a whopping £56m on Wednesday, the transfer deadline day. With the new deal coming in, French forward Olivier Giroud is now expected to leave the club to join London rivals Chelsea in an £18m deal, reports the Independent. Earlier, Dortmund agreed to sign Belgian forward Michy Batshuayi on loan from Chelsea for the remaining part of the season, paving way for Aubamayeng to complete his switch to the Gunners.
Aubamayeng has netted 22 goals and laid three assists in total across 28 appearances for Dortmund this season. Belgium international Batshuayi has made 32 league appearances for Chelsea since joining the club from Marseille in July 2016, scoring seven goals.
