Wenger happy with or without Aubameyang

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang could yet return for Borussia Dortmund on Saturday - despite the on-going saga of his possible move to Arsenal - his German club's head coach Peter Stoeger said Thursday.

So far we've been frustrated in our attempts to agree a fee as the Mirror claim that our two offers of £44m and £50m have been rejected after falling short of Dortmund's £60m valuation.

"Either our demands are fulfilled, then there can be another transfer, or they will not be fulfilled and Aubameyang will play in Dortmund until the summer".

Speaking on a press conference ahead of this weekend Bundesliga games, Stoger confirmed he intends to include the striker in his plans.

The forward has made 15 appearances in the Premier League this season, scoring four goals, but has been restricted to just one start, prompting speculation once again of his potential departure.

Sporting director Michael Zorc had earlier also attempted to clarify the situation.

Arsenal have already seen two bids for the 28-year-old rejected.

Arsenal are thought to be locked in negotiations with Borussia Dortmund over a fee for Gabon worldwide Aubameyang.

"The player wants to come, Dortmund want to sell and Arsenal want to buy".

The Gunners want to sign a striker to replace Alexis Sanchez who joined Manchester United last week.

Arsenal are also willing to include Olivier Giroud as part of the deal, but the Bundesliga club would rather a high cash offer, likely in excess of £65m.

"I think it could be an exciting partnership to watch flourish, with Mkhitaryan on the right-hand side and Mesut Ozil operating in a freer role behind", he told Sky Sports.

A late Jeremy Toljan goal salvaged a 2-2 draw for Dortmund, who are now 19 points behind leaders Bayern Munich, but a seemingly disinterested Aubameyang looked every inch a player on his way out of the club.
