Arsenal almost ready to announce Aubameyang

Arsenal are signing Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

Arsenal will pay Dortmund 63 million euros for the 28-year-old striker, plus bonus payments.

It was also revealed that Auba will become the most expensive transfer in Arsenal history, earning 10 million euros a year plus bonuses.

Arsenal’s Aubameyang confirmation

So when will Arsenal make the deal official?

The BBC have looked into the precise timetable of when the Aubameyang deal needs to happen. Readers are told:

Borussia Dortmund have cleared Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to have a medical at Arsenal but the deal is still not done.

The German transfer window closes at 1700 GMT tomorrow.

However, for transfers to a German club from overseas, that only applies to lodging contracts with the DFL.

The actual registration is done via Fifa and they have until 2300 GMT to complete that, so, in theory, a contract could be lodged for a transfer that never actually goes through.

At the same time, reports from inside Arsenal suggest the deal in imminent.

According to the one of Arsenal official account admins on Twitter, Aubameyang has already completed his video presentation and photo shoot.

There is a chance the announcement will be made on Tuesday.
