Dortmund draw a blank without dropped Aubameyang

Arsenal want to sign Pierre Emerick Aubameyang as Alexis Sanchez's replacement

The rules around player eligibility can get somewhat confusing here, so to avoid getting bogged down in the intricacies of the regulations (43.02) let's put it simply: Borussia Dortmund and Arsenal are in the same competition.

Aubameyang missed a team meeting on Saturday is now set to hold talks over his future with the club.

Arsenal are reportedly preparing a cash plus player offer for Borussia Dortmund striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

Facing the increasingly likely possibility of losing Alexis Sanchez to Manchester United, the Gunners have turned to Aubameyang as they begin to prepare for life without the Chile global and seek to replace the most potent goal threat in their squad.

The Gabon global is, for his part, keen on a move to the Emirates and the Mirror claim he's agreed personal terms with the Gunners.

In hints of a power shift at the Emirates, Arsenal's newly appointed head of recruitment Sven Mislintat is understood to be behind the latest move.

NFL Playoffs Guide: The Road to Super Bowl LII
The Saints and Vikings will square off again on Sunday in the National Football League playoffs, kicking off at 3:40 p.m. It's their first time hosting the NFC Championship Game since January 2005, when they won to advance to the Super Bowl.

But with Manchester United leading the race for Sanchez, it looks like former Borussia Dortmund man Henrikh Mkhitaryan could move in the opposite direction.

Despite scoring 10 goals in 11 games for his club, Dortmund did not hesitate in suspending the Gabon striker, as they announced on Twitter earlier that day.

And German publication Bild claim Aubameyang has put in a transfer request to push through a move away from the Bundesliga outfit. In his last 23 appearances for BVB, he has contributed directly to 24 goals (21 goals, 3 assists).

According to the Telegraph's report, "Arsenal believe he will benefit from competition for his place and is also capable of partnering Aubameyang". I just wonder Arsenal will muck all of this up...

However, Arsenal fans have reason to be confident again this afternoon due to Aubameyang's Twitter activity.
