Arsenal's big December signing influences pursuit of Mkhitaryan and Aubameyang

Jose Mourinho wants to sign Sanchez and is willing to spend more than Manchester City

The Gabonese striker looks certain to join Arsenal in the next few days, with Dortmund sporting director Michael Zorc travelling to London on Saturday.

With Alexis Sanchez nearing a move to Manchester United and Theo Walcott already joining Everton, the Gunners have targeted the Gabon worldwide to boost their attack.

Arsene Wenger has responded to Borussia Dortmund's claims that Arsenal have bid for Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang by stating he will only talk about players when a deal has been confirmed.

"Well generally it doesn't bother me at all if Aubameyang right now is kicking it around somewhere else", Hoger said when questioned about Aubameyang's antics after Friday's game.

"We're planning with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and there's a way back into the team for him, but professionalism is part of that".

"There is nothing really concrete on the table".

Aubameyang, last season's top scorer in the German league with 31 goals, has been dropped by Dortmund for the last two games amid speculation he is chasing a move to the Premier League club.

Morphine found in Roy Halladay's system before fatal plane crash
Witnesses told authorities the plane was climbing, diving, and flying close to the water surface shortly before impact. An eight-time All-Star, Halladay pitched a ideal game and a playoff no-hitter in 2010.

Mkhitaryan is arguably far more suited to Arsenal's system than United's and while Romelu Lukaku is deceptively quick, he doesn't boast the blistering pace Aubameyang does.

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

Sky Italia journalist Gianluca Di Marzio claimed on Thursday night that Aubameyang had agreed personal terms with Arsenal over a three-and-a-half-year contract worth around £8.8m per season.

In a surprise update last month, though, both Aubameyang and Borussia Dortmund confirmed that the African hitman had extended his deal at the Westfalenstadion until 2021.

Shinji Kagawa salvaged a 1-1 draw at Hertha Berlin when he capitalized on a rare defensive lapse from the otherwise well-organized home side with 20 minutes remaining.
