There aren't many elite players in world football desperate for a move to Arsenal at the moment. In fact, there might be only one: Dortmund's Pierre Emerick Aubameyang.
The Gabon striker has been eager to get out of Dortmund for a while, and has been throwing strops for a while. During the summer, for example, he pretty much went on strike to force a move to Real Madrid, before eventually being forced to fall into line after the window closed without the move happening.
As the January window hovered into view, however, Aubameyang began acting out again, falling out with new Dortmund boss Peter Stoger having failed to turn up at a recent team meeting.
It seems inevitable that the striker will join Arsenal at some point this month, but just to be sure, Aubameyang has been acting the bollocks this weekend.
According to BILD, while Dortmund were playing away to Hertha Berlin, Aubameyang skived off to play 5-a-side with his mates. Most telling was the fact he wore a Dortmund shirt bearing the name of Ousmane Dembele, his erstwhile teammate who was granted his big move to Barcelona in the summer.

We think it's time for Dortmund to sell.
