Arsenal are expected to complete the signing of Borussia Dortmund striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang in the “coming days,” according to Bild.
The Premier League club are expected to pay around €70 million to sign the 28-year-old, while Dortmund have looked at Chelsea’s Michy Batshuayi as a potential replacement.
Although reports suggest that Aubameyang has been given permission to miss Dortmund’s game against Hertha BSC on Friday night, Bild state that Peter Stöger has in fact forgiven the Gabon striker.
Bild: Stöger has forgiven Aubameyang ahead of Friday’s game against Hertha. Looks like @Aubameyang7 will start.

According to Kicker, Dortmund will turn their attentions towards Olivier Giroud, Fedor Smolov or Batshuayi but only if they receive an offer of at least €70m.
