Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang future

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang in action during the Champions League game between Tottenham Hotspur and Borussia Dortmund on September 13, 2017

Arsenal completed a club-record deal to sign Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang from Borussia Dortmund on the January transfer deadline day.

Off-field issues had forced Dortmund to sell the Gabon international, although they refused to lower their asking price of around £60m.

A complicated transfer triangle involving Olivier Giroud and Michy Batshuayi saw the deal stall at one stage, with Dortmund also refusing to allow Aubameyang to leave the club until they had a replacement in place.

However, the prolific striker's switch to the Emirates Stadium saw the first piece of the jigsaw fall into place, opening the door for Giroud to join Chelsea and Batshuayi to replace Aubameyang at Dortmund.
