Arsenal fans have been thrown into frenzy after new signing Henrikh Mkhitaryan dropped a major hint that Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang will be joining him at the Emirates, according to reports.
The Gunners completed the signing of Mkhitaryan on Monday night and the star granted his first interview as an Arsenal player, in which he erroneously revealed that Arsenal have sealed a deal for his former teammate Auba.
Arsene Wenger has a knack for being coy over Arsenal transfers and just like he did about Mkhi/Sanchez’s swap deal, he was also coy about Aubameyang’s proposed move to Arsenal when asked on Tuesday. However, the French manager revealed that negotiations are ongoing for the Gabonese to join Arsenal.
Dortmund are holding out for a £60 million for Aubameyang and they want French forward Olivier Giroud as part of the deal, albeit a loan move for the Puskas award winner. Even though an agreement is yet to be reached, Auba has reportedly agreed personal terms to join Arsenal.
Meanwhile, some Arsenal fans have taken to twitter to claim that Mkhitaryan revealed Auba Arsenal move in his behind-the-scenes unveiling video. What they are claiming to hear is
‘Pierre, do you want to come out here?’
Take a look at their reactions.
I analysed his mouth movement in slow mo and he definitely says the P in Pierre. Let’s go!!!
