Arsenal has unwittingly revealed the status of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang move to the Emirates after a video confirming the arrival of the Gabonese striker appeared on their website earlier today.
In these era of social media, it is well known for big clubs to spends close to a fortune unveiling their new deals with rich videos just like Manchester United and Barcelona did some couple of days back but the idea of the Arsenal post being taken as an accident was birthed from the swift disappearance of the post just almost immediately after it appeared on their website showing Arsene Wenger confirming the capture of Aubameyan.
In the brief video, an interviewer ask Arsene Wenger: “Aubameyang is an Arsenal player, you must be delighted to get the deal done?”
‘I’m convinced he will bring us that. He has a big challenge in front of him, he wants to win the Premier League.”
Aubameyang’s proposed move to the Emirates has dragged on for the greater part of the January transfer window being one of the most anticipated deals after Alexis Sanches Move to Mnachester United, but the deal appeared all-but done on Tuesday, when the forward was pictured flying to London.
The 28-year-old was later spotted arriving at the club’s training base, where he will have his medical ahead of the club record deal which must be completed today being the transfer deadline for January transfer window.
Olivier Giroud and Michy Batshuayi will also be affected by his arrival in a somewhat triangular move. Arsenal’s French striker will be set to join Chelsea for £18m deal, with Batshuayi also set to be replacing Aubameyang at the club he is departing, Borussia Dortmund.
Aubamayeng will be coming into the Arsenal squad fighting to make the champions league spot, after they endured a horrible night from the 3-1 defeat to Swansea city on Tuesday night
The defeat leaves Wenger’s side sitting sixth, eight points off Liverpool in fourth place.
