Ivan Gazidis has been snapped in Dortmund amid rumours Arsenal are closing in on a deal to sign Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.
The pictures, which were published in the premium edition of German publication, Bild, show Gazidis with Sven Mislintat. Huss Fahmy is also there.
Thankfully, Twitter user, Aaron, posted snaps of the paywalled article which seem to show the Arsenal team arriving at a private terminal at Dortmund airport:

The chrome Porsche, the text says, belongs to Auba. They also state that Gazidis goes back into the terminal, returning with another Arsenal official before both of them looked at the car and smiled.
It certainly seems to be his car:

BvB confirmed that Arsenal made a bid for the player but they have reportedly turned that down. Arsenal are expected to go back with a second bid and it could be that which Gazidis has brought with him.
Reports in Germany seem to think it’s just a matter of time before Auba leaves Dortmund with Arsenal the only destination on anyone’s radar at present.
Arsenal are offering 50m at present Dortmund are believed to want something closer to €70m.
