Borussia Dortmund sporting director Michael Zorc says that the events leading up to Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang's move to Arsenal were "unpleasant".

Borussia Dortmund sporting director Michael Zorc has described the lead-up to Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang's move to Arsenal as "unpleasant".

The Gabon international, who has scored 98 goals for the German club across four-and-a-half years, was dropped twice this season due to disciplinary reasons.

Today, the Bundesliga outfit announced that their star striker has finalised a move to Arsenal in a deal reportedly worth close to £60m.

In a statement to Dortmund's shareholder, Zorc said: "Apart from the unpleasant events of recent weeks, we like to remember that the story of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang at BVB for more than four years was a single success story.

"He has done great things for Borussia Dortmund at this time, scored many important goals and is part of the team that brought the DFB Cup to Dortmund in 2017. We wish Pierre-Emerick all the best for his future at Arsenal. "

The length of Aubameyang's contract at Arsenal has not been disclosed.
