Dortmund to Sign Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang

Dortmund to Sign Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang

Third-placed Borussia Dortmund were held 1-1 at Hertha Berlin in the Bundesliga on Friday for their second draw in a row without leading striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

Bild report Aubameyang wasn't on the plane so isn't in Dortmund's travelling squad for the trip to Berlin.

"We assume that Wenger has enough to do dealing with his own players".

"This kind of thing is better when it's secret and when you don't comment before announcing it when it's over the line", the veteran Premier League boss said.

The Gabon global has emerged as a top target for the Gunners during the January transfer window, with Arsene Wenger eager to find another proven threat in the final third as Alexis Sanchez edges towards the exits.

With the Gabon global now determined to leave Dortmund this month, Bild suggest a move is now seems "only a matter of time", adding the only major interested party is Arsenal.

"Overall you look at achievement over career and if he has done well the character has been used in a positive way".

For the full year, Morgan Stanley reported net revenue of $37.9 billion on an adjusted EPS of $3.60, excluding the tax charge. Morgan Stanley earned $686 million, or 29 cents a share, down from $1.67 billion, or 81 cents a share, from a year earlier.

Several English clubs, including Arsenal, are reportedly interested in signing the 28-year-old, who has repeatedly hinted of a possible move but signed a contract extension last year to 2021. "We were able to talk through this today, but for us it is still a clear story".

"Match practice is important for every player, maybe especially for younger guys".

"They must be more competitive on the market - times have changed since I left".

On Monday, Dortmund teammate Jadon Sancho published an Instagram video during which Aubameyang asked him to "bring me to London one day", a post that has since been deleted.

The Frenchman has struggled to cement a first-team spot at the north London club this season and could head out of the Emirates before the transfer window closes at the end of January.

"He can decide for himself, with his attitude, whether he will be considered and I plan on using him, if he works hard".
