Arsenal are set to make a club record fee of £63.2m in the summer to try and bring in Borussia Dortmund centre forward Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, according to French news outlet Le10 Sport.
The Gabonese striker has been in top, top form this season and has scored a stunning 32 goals in 36 games for Dortmund, firing them to a title challenge against Pep Guardiola’s Bayern Munich.

Aubameyang has already ruled out a move to Tottenham Hotspur and it looks as though Arsene Wenger is attempting an aggressive bidding war to bring the star to the Emirates Stadium.
The 26-year-old is currently contracted to remain in Germany until 2020 meaning that his current side have no reason to sell, although a bid upwards of £63m could tempt Thomas Tuchel into considering his options.
Arsenal have been linked with a number of players this season including the likes of Gonzalo Higuain and Chelsea’s Domingos Quina, the latter the Gunners are believed to have already sealed a deal for.
