The Aubameyang deal is edging closer to completion.
According to David Ornstein, the striker will have his medical on Wednesday morning.
LATEST: Aubameyang medical pencilled for Wed AM. Earlier today all set for Batshuayi loan to Dortmund, Giroud to Chelsea for £20m. But #CFC via Marina Granovskaia now trying to drive price down so #AFC minded to end talks & send Giroud to #BVB – though unclear if he’d agree to it pic.twitter.com/R9jAnVdk0f

The 28-year-old departed Dortmund in the afternoon to fly to England – a flight tracked by no less than 32,000 people.
It seems like Arsenal are doing everything they can on their end to push the deal through.
Hopefully, he’ll pass his medical without any problems.
After that, we’ll be in for an anxious wait to see if Dortmund get their replacement in time. That has been the sticking point of the deal for the past couple of days.
Arsenal and Dortmund are ready to confirm the agreement but time for them that replacement is running out.
We’ve gotten as far as getting Aubameyang in the country.
Meanwhile, Arsenal’s club short are reportedly selling shirts with the #14 on the back.

#14… the same as Thierry Henry (and Theo Walcott)…
Fingers crossed we won’t have to send him back to Germany after the deal has broken down.
