Arsenal will make a second bid for Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang after their first was rejected, according to reports.

After Arsenal’s first offer for Aubameyang was rejected by Dortmund, it seems Arsenal about to go in for round two.

According to Sunday’s edition of the Daily Telegraph, Arsenal will submit an improved offer for the striker.

They report that Dortmund are looking around £55m for the player.

That figure is a bit less than the £61m that Bild are claiming to be Dortmund’s asking price.

Bild also reported that the Bundesliga side would not budge on that valuation and will only sell if they receive that amount.

The bid apparently arrived after Ivan Gazidis contacted BvB himself.

Dormund’s CEO, Hans-Joachim Watzke, said of the offer: “There was a contact with Arsenal CEO Ivan Gazidis, where he informed me that he would like to speak with us. That has not happened yet. There are no current discussions.”

Arsenal are looking to reunite the striker with Henrikh Mkhitaryan.

The two formed a formidable partnership at Dortmund and seemed to get the best out of each other.

Bringing that connection to Arsenal could be crucial for the latter half of the season.

With Alexis Sanchez gone, we will need their combined creativity and goalscoring threat if we want to get back into the Champions League.
