Arsenal Given Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang Ultimatum By Borussia Dortmund

Arsenal have been told to either meet Borussia Dortmund’s valuation of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang or there will be no deal.
The Gunners have so far lodged two bids for the forward – both flatly rejected by the Bundesliga side – and now face a race a against time to get a deal over the line with just days remaining in the January transfer window.
Speaking to Sky Sports Germany on Saturday, Dortmund Sporting Director Michael Zorc has said that while the club are open to selling Aubameyang for the right price, if Arsenal do not raise their offer and match that price then the striker will be remaining in Germany until the summer at least.
Arsenal’s opening offer of around €45m plus €5m in add-ons was turned down last weekend, as was their second bid believed to be only slightly higher. Dortmund are reportedly holding out for around €70m for the frontman, which they consider to be reasonable for a player who has scored 21 goals in 23 games this season, as well as 40 goals in 46 in the last campaign.
