Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Henrikh Mkhitaryan have both reportedly agreed personal terms with Arsenal.
Goal claim that Dortmund striker Aubameyang and Manchester United playmaker Mkhitaryan have both agreed personal terms with Arsenal and the Gunners are confident of completing both deals.
According to Di Marzio, Aubameyang has signed a three-and-a-half year deal with Arsenal, taking him up until June 2021, with an option to extend it a year.
The 28-year-old, who had that long left on his Borussia Dortmund contract, will allegedly only get paid €10m-per-year – £8.8m. This breaks down to around £56,000 a week and is astonishing low considering Francis Coquelin was on £55,000.
Dortmund are allegedly asking for €60m (£55m) but would rather wait until the summer.
Mkhitaryan meanwhile is said to be moving to north London as part of a swap deal for Alexis Sanchez.
The 28-year-old’s agent Mino Raiola finally caved when the Gunners offered him a ‘healthy financial package’. The midfielder will apparently become one of the highest paid players at the club.
Arsenal’s new head of recruitment Sven Mislintat worked alongside both stars at Dortmund and has reportedly been an ‘integral part’ of bringing them both to London.
If the Gunners want either player to feature against Crystal Palace on Saturday, they will have to be registered by 12pm (GMT) Friday.
