As soon as Alexis Sanchez’s move to Manchester United was in motion, Aubameyang emerged as a top target for the North London outfit.

Lengthy negotiations began, but the two clubs struggled to agree on a fee, with the Gunners initially having a reported £50m offer rejected.

The North London outfit managed to get a deal over the line on transfer deadline day, and widespread reports have claimed that the fee is in the region of £60m.
