Bad news for Arsenal fans as forward may not join this month

No move

Arsenal could be set for a blow, with the news that Pierre Emerick Aubameyang may well stay at Borussia Dortmund this winter.

The Gunners had been heavily linked with the forward, especially after the departure of Alexis Sanchez, but it seems he may well remain at the German side for some time – despite making it clear he wants to leave and being open to a move to the Premier League.

There could be some good news for the Gunners however, with Lucas Moura a heavy favourite to join.

According to a Ladbrokes press release:

“PIERRE-EMERICK AUBAMEYANG may not be going anywhere this month unfortunately for Arsenal fans.
The Dortmund man’s chances of moving have taken a hit overnight, with the bookies pushing odds out from 1/6 to 2/5 as Deadline Day edges closer.
But North London could be welcoming one blockbuster name this month in the form of Lucas Moura, who is now more likely than ever to join Tottenham at 1/3.
And there’s good news for Liverpool fans too after the Reds’ odds of signing Thomas Lemar were slashed from 5/1 into just 3/1.”
Alex Apati of Ladbrokes said: “Lemar and Moura are shorter than they’ve ever been for January Prem moves, but Arsenal’s chances of signing Aubameyang this month are starting to drift.”

Carabao Cup

One positive for the Gunners is the fact they’re in the Carabao Cup final, after beating Chelsea earlier in the week, and the club will of course face Premier League leaders Manchester City.

It is a huge coup for Wenger, and it seems that the Arsenal boss cannot do anything wrong against Antonio Conte, after showing once again the Chelsea manager simply cannot work out a way to beat him.

It’s an exciting time for Arsenal fans, with the departure of Alexis Sanchez hurting far less than they may have anticipated, and their form since the player’s move to Manchester United broke being brilliant – and the inclusion of Henrik Mkhitaryan still to come.
